Predicted West Ham United Line-up To Face Chelsea In The Premier League
We have another London derby at hand with Chelsea hosting West Ham United at Stamford Bridge this Sunday. The Blues have been in terrible form lately, losing 5 of their last 7 Premier League games. Their hopes of Champions League promotion are hanging by a thread and the visitors will be looking to exploit the club’s poor form.
The Hammers beat Southampton 3-0 last weekend and they will come into this game with the confidence to cause an upset. However, Chelsea are strong at home and Moyes’ men must be wary of the defending champions.
Probable West Ham United XI
Manager: David Moyes
Joe Hart (GK)
Hart maintained a clean sheet in his previous outing and he will come into this game on a high.
Arthur Masuaku (LWB)
Masuaku is back for the Hammers. His energy and pace on the left-hand side made a difference against Southampton and he is expected to start this Sunday.
Declan Rice (CB)
The young defender works hard in every single game and the effect of that is quite visible in his performances. A sure starter.
Angelo Ogbonna (CB)
Ogbonna has established a solid partnership with Rice and they will have to be at their best against Chelsea.
Aaron Cresswell (CB)
Despite initial struggles, Cresswell has settled into life in central defence and he should be deployed in this role once more this weekend.
Pablo Zabaleta (RWB)
Zabaleta is one of West Ham’s strongest defenders and he will be looking to keep trouble from the home side at bay this Sunday.
Mark Noble (CM)
Adept at dictating terms in the midfield, Noble’s experience will enable him to put up a tough fight.
Cheikhou Kouyate (CM)
On a good day, Kouyate can control and dominate the midfield like no other. He should be finding his name in the starting line-up this Sunday.
Joao Mario (LW)
Mario’s creativity and power will prove to be crucial in unlocking a stubborn Chelsea defence.
Michail Antonio (RW)
Antonio’s blinding pace can help him weave past defenders and he is expected to retain his spot for the East London outfit.
Marko Arnautovic (ST)
Going up against Chelsea will be a major test for Arnautovic, who scored 2 splendid goals for the Hammers in their previous game.
