West Ham V Chelsea: Team News, Predicted XI And Betting Odds

West Ham have three major injury concerns heading into the crucial London derby against Chelsea on Wednesday evening.

Sebastien Haller looks set to miss out with a hip injury, with the Frenchman also likely to be absent when the Hammers face Newcastle this weekend.

Robert Snodgrass’s back problem is said to be more serious than first feared with the 32-year-old likely to be out for a number of games.

Arthur Masuaku is also still a doubt with a twisted ankle but Angelo Ogbonna is expected to be back in contention after missing the first two games since the lockdown due to a hamstring problem.

West Ham’s Predicted XI To Face Chelsea:

Fabianski, Fredericks, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Rice, Noble, Soucek, Bowen, Antonio, Fornals

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard will be sweating over the fitness of Christian Pulisic, who was taken off against Leicester yesterday with a suspected calf injury.

Andreas Christensen is also a doubt after picking up a hip problem which kept him out of the 1-0 win at the King Power Stadium. Fikayo Tomori is still unavailable due to a muscular injury.

Chelsea’s Predicted XI:

Kepa, Azpilicueta, Zouma, Rudiger, Alonso, Kovacic, Jorginho, Kante, Willian, Giroud, Mount

The bookies have made the Blues the favourites with Unibet pricing them at 8/13 for the win. A draw is 10/3 with Betfair while a West Ham victory is 19/4 at BetVictor.
