The derby match on Monday between Chelsea and West Ham has been generating reactions as the Blues need to pick all the three points.
Chelsea have received back to back defeat for the first time since 2019. A lose to both Everton and Wolves has handed them a blow in their title race. Chelsea have been pushed to 7th and will even see themselves drop down if they lose another game. Frank Lampard is short of players due to injury. He currently doesn’t have natural wingers to support his build up plan.
Chelsea are meeting with Westham on Monday. Frank Lampard has briefed in his live press conference about the availability of some players. Callum Hudson Odoi and Hakim Ziyech were sidelined last week after they picked hamstring injuries. Lampard was hopeful to have them back in the Monday night football but it is unlikely to happen. Both Odoi and Ziyech have returned to training but are doubtful to play against Westham. Latest injury scare is the knee problem of Reece James. The player picked the injury during training and is set for an operation and could miss the game. His good crosses are going to be missed immensely and Azpilicueta is set to step in for the England star. Chelsea are set to have an advantage playing at home but it will be played behind closed doors.
Chelsea fans, will the Blues redeem themselves and go back to winning ways? What’s your prediction for the game?
