Our prediction: West Ham v Chelsea

Chelsea are on a 12-game unbeaten streak but their most recent Premier League outings haven't been the most convincing they've looked this season.

They have Edouard Mendy to thank profusely on several occasions this season for keeping them in games, and Watford provided another example of this.

West Ham have lost their spark since the international break and desperately need Michail Antonio to find form before they fade further.

Our prediction: West Ham 1-2 Chelsea (17/2 at bet365)
