Predicted Chelsea line-up (3-4-2-1) vs West Ham, Malo Gusto starts
Chelsea travel to the London Stadium for today's Premier League clash against West Ham United.
The Blues played out a 1-1 draw against Liverpool in the season opener and will be aiming for their first victory in the derby.
Ahead of the game, the club have suffered a huge setback with Reece James injured, but they still have a strong looking squad.
Robert Sanchez had a mixed showing in his league debut for the Blues and needs to improve against the Hammers on the road. He is expected to start in goal.
In front of him, it should be the same back three. Axel Disasi made a huge mark on his debut with the equalising goal. He is expected to partner Thiago Silva and Levi Colwill at the heart of the defence.
With James sustained for the next month with a hamstring injury, Malo Gusto is a natural starter at right wing-back. Ben Chilwell looks set to captain the side from the left wing-back position today.
Moises Caicedo joined the Blues at the beginning of the week and should make his debut from the starting XI in the holding midfield role. He should be partnered by Enzo Fernandez, who was brilliant versus Liverpool.
Further forward, Raheem Sterling should accompany Conor Gallagher in attack with Nicolas Jackson leading the line. The Senegal international needs to find the back of the net amid Chelsea's pursuit of another striker.
Predicted Chelsea line-up (3-4-2-1): Sanchez; Disasi, Silva, Colwill; Gusto, Caicedo, Fernandez, Chilwell; Sterling, Gallagher; Jackson.
