Cesar Azpilicueta continues climb up all-time Chelsea list, but Ziyech drops out for West Ham clash

Chelsea’s starting line-up to face West Ham United this evening features a number of notable inclusions and absentees alike.

Derby showdown

Thomas Tuchel’s men are of course set to return to action shortly, in a crunch London derby showdown with the Hammers.

The clash marks a crucial one in the Premier League top-4 race, with the two sides, as things stand, level on 55 points, with six games to play.

It is this evening’s visitors to the London Stadium who boast the advantage in 4th, courtesy of a superior goal difference.

Both, in turn, are no doubt aware that a victory this evening would guide them not only clear of their capital rivals, but also a full 4 points ahead of champions Liverpool, after Jurgen Klopp and co. stuttered to a 1-1 stalemate at home to Newcastle earlier today.
