Thomas Tuchel’s side are yet to fully convince this season despite an aggressive summer spend and are coming off the back of a hugely disappointing performance away at Southampton in midweek.
While there are new signings to bed in, Tuchel needs to yield much more out of his team. Any more slip-ups and the club risk being even further behind Manchester City and Liverpool than they were last season.
West Ham, meanwhile, have plenty of new players of their own, although are another team to have struggled in the opening stages.
Still, after coming back against Tottenham on Wednesday, perhaps David Moyes can harness that energy and make a statement at Stamford Bridge.
