Chelsea face West Ham in the Premier League and the confirmed team news is in from the London Stadium.

Graham Potter‘s side head across the capital to east London to face a Hammers side who are lingering just above the drop zone.

It marks over five months since Potter took charge of Chelsea and he will be hoping to go four games unbeaten after a win and two draws, however they’ll be wanting to claim all three points and derby bragging rights.

“It feels longer than that,” Potter told BT Sport ahead of the game on managing Chelsea for five months. “Five very challenging months I would say. I’ve learnt a lot about the club, a lot about the people here, all the staff at Cobham.”

Chelsea are in ninth place in the Premier League and will be spurred on by the return of Joao Felix from suspension.

It’s just two wins from 12 for the Blues, with no away win in the league recorded since October when they beat Aston Villa.

Here is the confirmed team news from the London Stadium as West Ham take on Chelsea.
