West Ham face a hungry Chelsea in the Premier League on Wednesday as they look for crucial points in their fight for survival.

The Hammers welcome the Blues in one of the biggest London derbies in recent memory, with both Frank Lampard and David Moyes craving the three points for different reasons.

Time is beginning to run out for West Ham, who haven’t picked up a point or scored a goal since the season restarted and go in to this one above the Premier League relegation zone on goal difference.

For Chelsea, a Champions League place is far but confirmed with Wolves and Manchester United hot on their heels.

With victory over Leicester on Sunday seeing them through to the FA Cup semi finals, Blues boss Lampard will be eyeing silverware as well as a top 4 berth.

However, any such success against West Ham may have to be without Christian Pulisic, with the American winger withdrawn against the Foxes with a tight calf.

Callum Hudson-Odoi hasn’t featured for Chelsea since the restart due to a niggling ankle problem, but could make his comeback at the London Stadium.

Defenders Fikayo Tomori and Andreas Christensen are both rated 50-50 ahead of the game and will be assessed.

West Ham will be without two key players in Robert Snodgrass and Sebastien Haller, with Snodgrass suffering with a back injury and the £45m Haller out with a hip problem.

Arthur Masuaku is the only other injury concern for the Hammers, and he will be subject of a fitness test.

West Ham United v Chelsea at the London Stadium is an 8.15pm kick off on Wednesday, July 1.
