Chelsea will be away to West Ham at the London Stadium on Saturday evening, and it’s a game where the two teams will be aiming for a victory in order to boost their chances of finishing in the top four.

Chelsea are ahead of West Ham but only on goal difference, and a draw may not even be good enough, with Liverpool chasing from behind.

Hammers boss David Moyes has revealed that star player Jesse Lingard will be back to face Chelsea, and also Michail Antonio.

Lingard has been in sensational form since joining West Ham from Manchester United on loan, and a return of 9 goals and 3 assists, has made the Manchester United loanee one of the most in-form players in the Premier League.

Lingard was forced off with a cramp after scoring in their last game against Newcastle, and Moyes has revealed that he’s fine to face the Blues.

He also revealed that there’s hope for key man Michail Antonio to play against Chelsea.

“We are very much the same as we were last week, one or two close to fitness but I am not sure they will make it or not,” Moyes told reporters at his pre-match press conference on Friday.

“Lingard had cramp, he is fine. Hopeful Micky [Antonio] can get back in amongst it and Cresswell, Arthur Masuaku too.

“Cresswell is getting closer, we will monitor it and see how he feels tomorrow.

“It is part of the job. To be fair we have done well with some players out.”
