[Teams] West Ham vs Chelsea: Confirmed Line-Ups

Moses enjoyed a good spell on loan at West Ham last season and but for Antonio Conte, may now be playing on a permanent basis at the London Stadium.

With the win, Chelsea have now reinstated their 10 point lead over second place Tottenham.

As Hazard slid to his knees to celebrate, a West Ham fan rushed onto the pitch toward Hazard, but stewards managed to intervene in time. "They still think they have a chance to catch Chelsea if Chelsea slip, and they can slip in every game", via Independent.

"I watched Manchester City against Monaco because I wanted to breathe the atmosphere again and to feel this type of game".

Antonio Conte has set his Chelsea players the challenge to re-establish themselves in the Champions League and revealed one of the principal objectives set by Roman Abramovich upon the Italian's appointment as manager was to restore the team to Europe's elite club competition. From their last 20 league games they've won 17, drawn two, and lost just one, while they've also registered three straight wins in the FA Cup recently, scoring 10 goals in the process.

The fears stem from recently intercepted radio messages sent out in the dead of night by the Pyongyang propaganda station. The kind of missile is uncertain but the North is prohibited from nuclear tests or any missile by the UN.

West Ham United conceded at least a goal in each of their last five Premier league matches and have been tipped by SportyBet not to keep a clean sheet at odds of (1.11) in this clash.

The visitors took the lead much against the run of play in the 25th minute, when a swift counter-attacking move resulted in Eden Hazard rounding the goalkeeper after a great interception by N'Golo Kante and an even better return pass from Pedro.

Chelsea did not get into the game but it did not matter. Some teams can be guilty of over-complicating the game, but Chelsea under Conte just do the simple stuff brilliantly.

Despite all the efforts of the club, there are still security problems at the London Stadium. The first damage Carroll did, though, was to himself, cutting his face when he jumped with Victor Moses.

The home side's plan was based on crosses from the left from Robert Snodgrass or Aaron Cresswell, but they rarely delivered anything useful for Carroll. Andy Carroll is likely to be back after his groin injury while Diafra Sakho and Ogbonna continue to remain sidelined with their respective injuries.
