A match! Early on Boxing Day! Nurse your food hangovers and enjoy the ride, for Eden Hazard has, as expected, recovered from his experiences at Stoke, and Oscar's back in the starting lineup as well. Chelsea look suspiciously full strength for this one, so let's extend that lead at the top of the table.

----------------

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Thibaut Courtois; Cesar Azpilicueta, John Terry, Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic; Nemanja Matic, Cesc Fabregas; Eden Hazard, Oscar, Willian; Diego Costa.

Substitutes from: Petr Cech, Filipe Luis, Kurt Zouma, Ramires, John Obi Mikel, Andre Schurrle, Didier Drogba.

West Ham United starting lineup (4-4-2): Adrian; Aaron Cresswell, Winston Reid, James Collins, Carl Jenkinson; Cheikhou Kouyaté, Mark Noble, Kevin Nolan, Stewart Downing; Enner Valencia, Andrew Carroll.

Substitutes from: Jussi Jaaskelainen, Joey O'Brien, Matt Jarvis, Morgan Amalfitano, Alex Song, Diafra Sakho, Carlton Cole.
