Chelsea will be away at the London Stadium on Monday night, as the Hammers host the Blues in a local derby match.

Michael Owen and Paul Merson have backed Chelsea to get a win in the game, and Mark Lawrenson also tips Chelsea to get all three points.

He told the BBC Sport: “West Ham’s poor start to the season seems a distant memory now but Chelsea just keep finding a way to win games.

“That is why I would back the Blues to get a win at the London Stadium and also why I don’t see anyone catching Antonio Conte’s side at the top of the table.

“I have mentioned Manchester City striker Aguero as a player who has been out of the team and not made a fuss, well, Cesc Fabregas has done the same for Chelsea.

“Fabregas has come into the team and looked fantastic and, along with Willian, is a great example of the depth they have got – Chelsea can make three or four changes and it does not seem to weaken their team whatsoever.

“The Hammers have only lost one of their past six league games, and beat Chelsea in the EFL Cup in October, but I am going with the leaders to pick up another three points.”
