West Ham Line-up vs Chelsea: Zarate, Sakho & Payet START In Attack

West Ham play host to Chelsea this weekend as we are set for another fierce London Derby at the Boleyn Ground.

Slaven Bilic will have to make do without Victor Moses for the home clash against Chelsea, with the winger ineligible against his parent club.

Mauro Zarate could get the nod to take his place, with Pedro Obiang and Enner Valencia, who both continued to build up their match fitness with 45 minutes for the reserves earlier this week, other options for the Croatian.

Michail Antonio could also be drafted back into contention having been omitted from the match day squad at Palace.

Manuel Lanzini and Dimitri Payet look certain starters in the other two advanced midfield positions in Bilic’s preferred 4-2-3-1 system, with Diafra Sakho to lead the line once again.

Andy Carroll will likely feature off the bench once again. Winston Reid has again been ruled out because of his back injury, so we could see an unchanged backline of Carl Jenkinson, James Tomkins, James Collins and Aaron Cresswell take the field once again, with the only possible change seeing Angelo Ogbonna coming in for Collins.

Mark Noble and Cheikhou Kouyate should continue in the engine room. Alex Song is the Hammers only long-term absentee.

Having said this, here is how I expect Bilic to line-up his side against Chelsea.
