Premier League Matchday 27 Finale: West Ham vs Chelsea

Posted March 07, 2017

Chelsea nearly created a chance from the kick off. The Ghanaian global can be a unsafe player so Conte brought on Nemanja Matic for Pedro, switching to a 5-3-2 formation created to smother any new impetus for the hosts. Their home victory over Swansea was helped somewhat by a poor piece of goalkeeping from Lukasz Fabianski, but win they did.

"At end of game he will reiterate".

However, the Hammers eliminated Chelsea from the League Cup at the fourth round stage this season; winning 2-1 at the London Stadium. City have put nine past them in league and cup here, Arsenal won 5-1 and Manchester United were comfortable in a 2-0 win in January. The title race can still take an interesting twist.

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has lauded Moses, who has played most of his career as an attacking wideman, for the ease with which he has adapted to his new role. It's also an area where they look best-placed to do so.

It was actually a bad touch from Kante in the 45th minute of the London derby but the Frenchman's commitment to win the ball back showed just what an unbelievable addition he is to Antonio Conte's side.

They could probably be forgiven for feeling emboldened about the way they started the match. What they don't have between them, though, is height.

There were a lot of red hats, a lot of Trump shirts (even on a dogs), and a smattering of signs (many rife with misspellings). Saturday's rally followed a string of anti-Trump events that started with women's marches the day after his inauguration.

N'Golo Kante appears to be getting better and better with each passing week.

David Luiz marshalls the defence and is joined by Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta with Thibaut Courtois keeping goal. The problem is keeping him fit.

That's a shame, though, because on his day Carroll can be unplayable. They played very physical football against us.

"I remember once I spoke to [Dimitri] Payet during last season". But City and Spurs could win every remaining match this season and still not bother the engravers. Chelsea, on the other hand, are starting to wobble just the slightest bit.

Carroll has struggled for fitness throughout his four-and-a-half years with the Hammers and has only managed 12 Premier League appearances this term, although he has bagged an impressive six goals in that time.

This match, away from home against a big rival, is one of the fixtures in which there is potential to slip up, so Conte will want to see his players turn in a professional display.
