West Ham face Chelsea at London Stadium on Monday, March 6. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
The runaway leaders of the Premier League look to increase the disparity at the top of the table when they make the short trip to east London in a match against the in-form Hammers.
While 30 points separate Chelsea and West Ham, this match could potentially cause the league leaders some uncomfortable moments.
Not so uncomfortable that they don’t come away with all three points, though.
The loss of Dimitri Payet to Marseille has galvanized the Hammers. Slaven Bilic’s squad have lost only one of their last six, a 4-0 drubbing to Manchester City on Feb. 1. Barring that lapse, West Ham have been solid, winning three games and drawing two.
Bilic is optimistic regarding Andy Carroll’s probable return to the lineup, which would be fantastic news for the Hammers. West Ham usually take all three points when their marksman gets on the score sheet. Carroll has scored in all three recent West Ham wins, including notching a brace after coming on as a 66th minute substitute in the 3-1 victory away at Middlesbrough.
Just when you think Chelsea might slip up they show the true mark of champions, clawing and scratching their way to all three points. Swansea played admirably in the 3-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge last weekend, but the Blues showed a glimpse of what it takes to be champions in that game.
They last lost at White Hart Lane seven matches ago and have taken 14 of a possible 18 points during their recent unbeaten run. While those aren’t immaculate numbers, no other title challengers are capitalizing on Chelsea’s minor blips.

This will be another test for the title hopefuls and they should once again prove why they’re head and shoulders above the rest of the league in the current campaign. Chelsea have lost only two of their last 21 Premier League matches against West Ham.
