Moyes confident West Ham need just two more wins

West Ham forward Michail Antonio may need surgery on hamstring injury that finished his season

After resorting to a 3-5-2 formation in a 1-0 loss to the Hammers back in December, it's safe to say that we won't be using that again anytime soon and the "trusty" 3-4-3 is most probably going to be applied once more.

The Blues were beaten 3-1 by Tottenham last weekend to extend the gap between Chelsea in fifth and the top four to eight points. They have one Premier League win in five, last beating Crystal Palace, while also progressing in the FA Cup with a win over Leicester, but were eliminated from Europe by Barcelona last month. It was an emphatic performance in the first half and it gave us the chance to go on and win the game quite well.

"The players play the game, not the coach. If we do, I hope we can give them a really good game".

West Ham will be without Michail Antonio as he's been ruled out for the rest of the season but Manuel Lanzini could return to the squad.

Marko Arnautovic, who scored in the victory over Chelsea in December, is in form following a couple of worldwide goal for Austria and two for West Ham in their recent 3-0 result at home to Southampton.

The Blues haven't lost back-to-back home Premier League London derbies since 1999, when they lost 0-1 against West Ham in the March, before Kanu's hat-trick saw Arsenal triumph 3-2 in the October.


Chelsea legend Ray Wilkins sadly passed away earlier this week.

While it has been an up and down tenure so far at the club for Moyes, he has improved the side since he took over.

"It's a big game but I do fancy Chelsea", Merson told Sky Sports.

"The best tribute the current Chelsea side could then pay would be to lift themselves to a (currently) rare win as their title defence fizzles out tamely".

Chelsea have to put a show on for their fans after last week against Tottenham.

The West Ham players were commended for the way they dealt with the disruptions against Burnley and if the Saints victory is anything to go by, they've been bonded by the whole nasty episode. Odds-against with a two goal start is tasty enough and I'm also chancing them in receipt of just one.
