West Ham v Chelsea

Chelsea will be targeting back-to-back wins in the Premier League when they take on West Ham United at the Boleyn Ground on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues halted a dismal run of form last weekend as they clinched a 2-0 victory over Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge, a result that moved them up to 12th place in the Premier League standings.

The Hammers, meanwhile, stretched their unbeaten run in the league to six games after recording a 3-1 win at Crystal Palace, and head into Saturday's clash flying high in fourth place.

On the team news front, West Ham will have to make do without the services of Winston Reid (back) and Alex Song (ankle/foot).

Winger Victor Moses is ineligible to face his parent club, while Enner Valencia is pushing to make his first start of the campaign after recently returning from injury.

For Chelsea, Pedro, Loic Remy and Branislav Ivanovic are ruled out through injury, while knee-injury victim Thibaut Courtois remains on the treatment table.
