With the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool breathing down their necks, the Blues will not want to slip up right now and they will be determined to grind out a positive result.
West Ham can be a formidable side on their day and it remains to be seen whether the Hammers can step up and deliver a big performance here. They managed to beat Liverpool back in November and the home fans will be demanding a similar performance here.
However, they have struggled against the likes of Wolves and Brighton in recent weeks and Chelsea could prove to be too strong for them.
