Latest EPL standings as well as fixtures and results are found below the predictions.
Chelsea and West Ham face off at Stamford Bridge on Monday night in the English Premier League, with more than London derby bragging rights to play for.
The pair begin the weekend separated by just a point and a place, seventh and eighth in the EPL table.
But both have endured recent hiccups, each winning just once in their last three fixtures.
Chelsea have lost their last two, away to Everton and Wolves, denting their title challenge as the campaign heads towards its midway point.
The possible inclusion of Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi will be a boon for the Blues, with the former in with a chance of starting at The Bridge.
West Ham’s only recent blemish came against Manchester United, as boss David Moyes failed to get one over on his former club.
An impressive win away to Leeds and a derby draw with Crystal Palace have followed, as the Hammers continue to come good following their dodgy start to the season.
Michael Antonio looks set to be fit for the bench at best, while Arthur Masuaku is a definite absentee.
Aaron Cresswell and Jarrod Bowen both suffered minor injuries in the week, potentially leaving Moyes limited if he wants to shuffle his pack for the trip across town.
