Chelsea hosts West Ham in round 14 of the English Premier League. The match will be played on Monday, December 21st at Stamford Bridge (London).
Last season Lampard went through a tough test on the Blues' coaching bridge amid a shortage of staff and a transfer ban. The young coach brilliantly coped with those problems, and this year he received the promised significant enhancement of the squad. Chelsea takes an intermediate place in the Champions League zone, lagging 3-4 points behind the Premier League leader. Beyond that, the Blues have accomplished the task of advancing to the 1/8 finals of the Champions League. In the summer, the London grandee received the anticipated staffing enhancement (goalkeeper Mendy, defenders Chilwell and Thiago Silva, midfielders Havertz and Ziyech, as well as forward Werner). The old-timers of Chelsea, namely, Zouma, Mount, Jorginho, and Abraham, are in good shape.
A good spurt from Moyes' men helped them come close to the European Cup zone. This is a real breakthrough for West Ham because the Hammers have been making unsuccessful attempts to become a significant force at the national level for several years in a row. Londoners have gained most of their victories in the pragmatic style that was inherent in Everton when the Scottish successor of Alex Ferguson worked there. West Ham stopped throwing money in the transfer market and constantly looking for players with a big name. The emphasis is placed on players with technical skills that are ideally suited to the Hammer's game style. Soucek, Fornals, and Benrahma became the regular players in the team. Coufal and Dawson have not yet fully realized their potential in the new club. Bowen, Creswell, Rice, and Ogbonna are in good shape (resurrected from oblivion).
Despite the good performance of the Hammers, they will find it difficult to compete against such a powerful rival. Chelsea prefers an aggressive offensive style and acts compactly in midfield, preventing opponents from gaining much room to counterattack. Styles make the game, and all factors speak in favor of the hosts. Moreover, they will be extremely motivated after a recent insulting defeat to Wolverhampton.
