With six days of Premier League left, West Ham, that was 13th the last year, wants to improve its position in the table this season. Chelsea needs to return to play the European competition. To do that, they must win all the matches left.
The team led by Maurizio Sarri have only lost one game at home. They will start this match in the fifth place of the table, but they could reach Champions League places with a win. They will face a team that comes from losing against Everton (0-2) and with the desire of achieving points in a tough stadium.
Pellegrini cannot count on the injured Andy Carroll, Jack Wilshere, Andriy Yarmolenko, Carlos Sánchez and Winston Reid. He can count on Lucas Pérez who was in the starting lineup against Everton and already played against Chelsea in the first leg. The final score was a 0-0 at London Stadium.
The team managed by Maurizio Sarri will try to get the win after beating Cardiff City (1-2). The Italian coach announced that he will make several changes in the lineup because they will play quarterfinals of the Europa League on Thursday.
