Mark Lawrenson states his prediction for West Ham v Chelsea FC

Mark Lawrenson states his prediction for West Ham v Chelsea FC

I have spoken with the doctor, but only for a few seconds.

"And they will be hoping Marko Arnautovic recovers from the knee injury he sustained in that game, because he was just terrific".

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has a tough decision to make over whether to pick Alvaro Morata or Olivier Giroud for a testing encounter with West Ham on Sunday.

This will be a test for Sarri who will need to rotate to keep his side fresh and competing on all fronts.

West Ham now sit 16th in the Premier League table.

Attack: Eden Hazard was rested for the Europa League group stage game after complaining he was exhausted after scoring a hat-trick against Cardiff last time out but the Belgian global is expected to be recalled against the Hammers. Manuel Lanzini suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury after being called up for Argentina's World Cup squad over the summer. Andy Carroll is out with an ankle injury but he is back working on the pitch.




That could have knocked the confidence of a winless West Ham side.

Javier Hernandez is expected to miss the Chelsea clash due to an illness and this could be the most worrying concern for Manuel Pellegrini given that Marko Arnautovic is also dangling with his fitness.

Brazil winger Willian struck after just seven minutes with a first-time finish after an assist from Ross Barkley to extend Chelsea's winning run to six games in all competitions.

Belgian playmaker Eden Hazard has been the star man for Chelsea so far this season, scoring a hat-trick in their 4-1 demolition of Cardiff last week to lead the race for the Premier League Golden Boot.

The scoreline might suggest that the game was close, but if one goes through the match stats, they will realize how Chelsea was dominating PAOK at their home ground.

And they will likely all return to make the short trip to the London Stadium to face West Ham.
