[Teams] West Ham vs Chelsea: Confirmed Line-ups
Chelsea make the short trip across London to face West Ham at Upton Park on Saturday lunchtime hoping for three points to close the gap on the top-two.
After successive home draws against Man City and Fulham, the Blues now trail league leaders Man Utd by seven points so victory today is vital if Chelsea are to maintain hopes of winning the title this season.
Interim boss Rafa Benitez is under increasing pressure and a win today would help endear himself to the Stamford Bridge faithful, who’ve been left unimpressed by his appointment following the sacking of Robert Di Matteo.
The Spaniard has stuck with under-fire striker Fernando Torres for the game but Victor Moses comes in for Oscar. Juan Mata is also recalled. Here are the confirmed line-ups for the game:
West Ham Team
Jaaskelainen, Reid, O’Brien, Collins, Demel, Nolan, Tomkins, Jarvis, Noble, O’Neil, Cole
Subs: Spiegel, Maiga, Taylor, Diame, Spence, Fanimo, Moncur
Cech, Azpilicueta, Ivanovic, Cahill, Cole, Ramires, Mikel, Moses, Mata, Hazard, Torres
Subs: Turnbull, Romeu, Oscar, Ferreira, Marin, Bertrand, Piazon.
