Latest Chelsea team news
Abraham has featured in every Premier League game for Chelsea this season but was forced off halfway through our thrilling midweek draw in Valencia with a severe knock to his hip. On Friday Lampard confirmed the striker will miss the West Ham game.
Hudson-Odoi and Rudiger didn’t travel to Spain but Lampard reported that both were closing in on a return to fitness, as is Barkley. Long-term absentee Ruben Loftus-Cheek will definitely miss out.
Latest West Ham team news
Manuel Pellegrini’s side are winless in eight, having not tasted victory since beating Manchester United in September. However, the Chilean was able to call on the services of Michail Antonio last time out against Tottenham as the forward made his first appearance in almost three months as a substitute and his impact led to the Hammers clawing back a three-goal deficit to 3-2.
West Ham will be without goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski, Jack Wilshere, Manuel Lanzini and Winston Reid, who have all spent varying periods of time on the treatment table in recent weeks. Issa Diop, who has started every league game this season, is suspended.
