After a weekend hiatus from the routine which saw the Blues lift their first silverware of the season, Chelsea will dive right back into Premier League action with another London derby. This time, it's Sam Allardyce and West Ham United.
West Ham started the season in wonderful form, and were flirting with the Champions League places at the turn of the new year. Since that time, however, the Hammers have been struggling, and now find themselves a fair distance away from the final Europa League place.
That said, West Ham away is still a tricky fixture, as the Hammers are the sort of athletic side that can cause sides like Chelsea all sorts of problems on the break. Jose Mourinho has opted to line up with the following:
Chelsea team vs West Ham: Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry (c), Azpilicueta; Zouma, Ramires, Fabregas, Oscar, Hazard, Diego Costa. #CFC— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) March 4, 2015
Subs v West Ham: Cech, Filipe Luis, Loftus-Cheek, Cuadrado, Willian, Remy, Drogba. #CFC— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) March 4, 2015
Here's the group Allardyce has selected to host the Blues on Wednesday:
