West Ham defender set to miss Chelsea clash, along with Victor Moses

West Ham have been in very good form so far during the 2015/16 season, sitting fourth in the table, with 17 points from eight matches. They'll be looking to extend their unbeaten Premier League run to seven, but they'll be doing so without a pair of key contributors who have helped the Hammers get out to a fast start.

Victor Moses won't be eligible to play on Saturday, as he's currently under contract with Chelsea. FA rules don't allow a loanee to play against his parent club in domestic competition, a sensible regulation, which Arsene Wenger naturally hates.

Meanwhile, Hammers manager Slaven Bilic has confirmed that defender Winston Reid will also miss the match, as he's dealing with a minor injury. That should be good news for a Chelsea side finally starting to look somewhat dangerous in attack, even if the goals have still been difficult to come by.

At the moment, Reid is the only injured player for West Ham, while Enner Valencia is likely to start in place of Moses.
