Chelsea have the opportunity to gain points from our title rivals as Manchester United host Manchester City on Sunday.
The Blues will be away to West Ham this afternoon, and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has admitted that the game is a must win for his team.
Conte said: “For this reason we have to try to win the game. It won’t be easy against West Ham. The last game against Manchester City, they struggled a lot before winning the game against them.”
West Ham are 19th on the table, which led to the dismissal of Slaven Bilic, and David Moyes was in charge of the Hammers for the first time in their 2-1 defeat against Manchester City last weekend.
Conte revealed his shock at West Ham’s position as he said: “It’s a bit strange to see them in this position in the table. For sure they have the potential to do better. I hope not from tomorrow, but after our game. For sure this team is a really good team with good players.”
