Match Preview: Chelsea vs. West Ham (EPL)

West Ham will be hoping to take advantage of Antonio Conte’s recent arrival at Chelsea, when the two clubs take each other on in this Premier League opener tonight.

The scene is set at Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge, and both clubs will be looking to get one over on their London rivals early on in the season.

Last meeting between these two saw a 2-2 draw, with a controversial equalising Chelsea penalty given for a foul on Ruben Loftus-Cheek made outside the box by Michail Antonio.

Team News

West Ham are without Aaron Cresswell and Manuel Lanzini due to injury, and Dimitri Payet is likely to start from the bench having played only 20 minutes of pre-season football for the Hammers. Brand new signings Andre Ayew and Arthur Masuaku will be looking to make their debuts for the club.

Likely starting line-up: Adrian, Masuaku, Ogbonna, Reid, Byram, Nordtveit, Noble, Kouyate, Feghouli, Ayew, Carroll.
