Chelsea play host to West Ham at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues would be seeking a win after last weekend’s defeat to Southampton.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel will have a fuller house for this game, as the bulk of his squad is available to face the Hammers in this London derby clash.

Reece James is back in action after missing the last game through illness, Trevoh Chalobah and new signing Wesley Fofana are available for selection for this weekend’s clash with West Ham, as well as Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Conor Gallagher who was absent against Southampton through suspension.

N’Golo Kante won’t be able to feature due to injury, and also new signings Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Denis Zakaria won’t be available for this tie.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has revealed that the duo won’t feature in Saturday’s fixture against West Ham.

Aubameyang remains injured from the robbery assault at his home in Barcelona earlier this week, while Zakaria is yet to have his work permit sorted out.
