David Moyes' men have found some defensive stability this term and will hope to continue to frustrate opponents while also finding the net for themselves. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Chelsea v West Ham on TV and online.

Chelsea v West Ham team news

Chelsea: Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi are both expected to return to the matchday squad but neither is expected to start.

Reece James has a knee issue that could keep him out of the clash as a precaution, meaning Cesar Azpilicueta could enter the fray.

West Ham: Arthur Masuaku is the only nailed-on absentee for the Hammers, though Aaron Cresswell, Fabian Balbuena, Michail Antonio and Jarrod Bowen have all picked up knocks and look set to miss out.

Said Benrahma is set for a start in the N0.10 slot behind Sebastien Haller while Robert Snodgrass could get the nod to start if Bowen doesn't make it.

Our prediction: Chelsea v West Ham

West Ham could be without the spine of their team if Cresswell, Bowen and Antonio miss out, making their task a tricky one.

Chelsea have some attacking problems with Olivier Giroud picking up the slack with Timo Werner and Kai Havertz struggling to find form in the Premier League.

The Blues need Christian Pulisic back to his best as well if they are to keep pace with a highly-competitive top half of the table.

Our prediction: Chelsea 1-1 West Ham
