The change of the head coach does not yet give West Ham anything. Under the guidance of David Moyes, Londoners have already held four matches of the championship of England, in which they scored just one point. This could not but affect the tournament situation - the "hammers" rolled back to the penultimate place in the table. In the near future, "West Ham" is not so much chance to rise higher. On Saturday, the team of David Moyes will take Chelsea, and on Wednesday - Arsenal. Opponents are very serious, but the place in the relegation zone will force the "hammers" even in matches with top teams to compete for points.
Michael Antonio, Chicharito, Andy Carroll, Winston Reed and Mark Noble recovered and are ready to play on Saturday. James Collins in question, and Sheik Kuyayte, Sam Bayram and Jose Fonte just will not appear on the field.
"Chelsea" scored a good move, not losing in the last seven games in all tournaments. In the week, Antonio Conte's team broke up with Atletico (1: 1) in the Champions League and allowed Roma to take first place in the group. "Pensioners" became the only representative of England in the strongest club tournament of the continent, who failed to become a triumphant of his quartet. However, it is unlikely that this fact in West London is too upset, given the fact that the second places also took Bayern Munich, Juventus and Real Madrid.
Against "West Ham" for "Chelsea" will not play two players. Danny Drinkwater got sick and has been fighting temperature for three days, and David Luis still has problems with his knee.
