Chelsea travels across town to Upton Park this afternoon where they will take on a West Ham side that is unbeaten in their last six Premier League matches that sees Slaven Bilic’s men sitting fourth in the table.
And while the Blues are yet to win two matches in a row, they can take some conciliation from the 2-0 win over Aston Villa, along with an improved performance against Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that there are no changes to the injured list which means Loic Remy and Pedro (both knocks), Branislav Ivanovic (hamstring) and Thibaut Courtois (knee) remain out.
Despite both teams current league positions West Ham has a terrible record against Chelsea and has only managed a single win at home which makes them the underdog with BET365 at Odds of 3/1.
For us here at Soccer Transfers we remain firmly entrenched in the camp that Chelsea has far too good a team to be languishing 12th in the league, and that now it is just a question of taking one match at a time as the club rises up the table.
Add to this the fact that a player with the quality of Eden Hazard has to come good, which is why we are backing Chelsea to win at odds of 19/20 with Bet365.
Provisional squad: Begovic, Fabregas, Zouma, Rahman, Ramires, Oscar, Falcao, Hazard, Mikel, Traore, Kenedy, Costa, Matic, Willian, Cahill, Terry, Blackman, Azpilicueta, Loftus-Cheek, Djilobodji, Aina.
