How Chelsea could line up against West Ham with Havertz dropped


Chelsea are looking for a little seasonal cheer in the Monday Night Football, with West Ham the visitors in the Premier League.

Frank Lampard’s Blues have endured back-to-back defeats to Wolves and Everton – victory over a local rival in West Ham would provide the perfect tonic, with three points enough to propel Chelsea into fifth above Spurs.

The predicted Chelsea line up vs West Ham could very well see Kai Havertz dropped, with a front three of Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner and Olivier Giroud.

The only other significant change is likely to be Cesar Azpilicueta who will come in for the injured Reece James.

Lampard revealed in his pre-match press conference that Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi are both back in training but starting places on Monday may come too soon for the duo.

A good omen for Chelsea ahead of West Ham in the Premier League is that the Blues are now undefeated in their past five league games at Stamford Bridge, scoring three or more goals in each of them – more of the same against the Hammers would be a very welcome festive gift for fans.

Predicted Chelsea line up vs West Ham

Goalkeeper: Edouard Mendy
Defense: Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Kurt Zouma, Ben Chilwell
Midfield: Mateo Kovacic, Mason Mount, N’Golo Kante
Attack: Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic, Olivier Giroud
