Chelsea XI vs West Ham: Confirmed early team news, predicted lineup, injury latest for Premier League today #CHEWHU

Frank Lampard will assess Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi after the Chelsea pair returned to training ahead of tonight’s London derby against West Ham.

Both have been sidelined with hamstring problems in recent weeks.

Ziyech has enjoyed a blistering start to his Chelsea career and Lampard will be hoping to have the former Ajax man back to take on the Hammers with Chelsea having lost their last two.

“It was their first day back with the group today at a decent level,” said Lampard. “I need to see how they are to see if they make West Ham.”

Kai Havertz is expected to keep his place despite a string of disappointing displays. Lampard defended the player when speaking to the media.

“He had no pre-season, then got Covid and all eyes are on because of the price tag but we need huge perspective here,” the Chelsea boss said.

“Not saying it will tak a elong, long time but he does need time to settle in. For Chelsea fans and us, we must give him time.

Lampard will, for the first time this season, be able to name nine substitutes on his bench for the game after Premier League clubs voted the change through, though a maximum of three changes during the game remains.
