Maurizio-Sarri-chelsea

Chelsea will be looking to maintain their 100% start to the new season when they take on West Ham at the London Stadium this afternoon.

Maurizio Sarri has made several changes to the side that beat PAOK in the Europa League on Thursday night with Cesar Azpilicueta coming in at right-back and Davide Zappacosta dropping out. David Luiz also gets a recall in defence as he starts alongside Antonio Rudiger and Marcos Alonso.

Mateo Kovacic is passed fit to return in midfield after missing the trip to Greece with a minor knock while Jorginho and N’Golo Kante retain their places. Eden Hazard was rested in midweek after complaining of tiredness but the Belgian international is back in attack this afternoon.

Willian retains his place after scoring the only goal of the game against PAOK but Pedro misses out through injury. Olivier Giroud replaces Alvaro Morata up front with the Italian making way following a disappointing display in Greece.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

West Ham

Fabianski, Zabaleta, Balbuena, Diop, Masuaku, Obiang, Rice, Noble, Anderson, Yarmolenko, Antonio

Subs: Cresswell, Snodgrass, Adrian, Sanchez, Ogbonna, Fredericks, Lucas Perez

Chelsea

Kepa, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso, Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic, Willian, Hazard, Giroud.

Subs: Fabregas, Barkley, Caballero, Moses, Zappacosta, Cahill, Morata
