This afternoon Chelsea are back in Premier League action when they welcome West Ham United to Stamford Bridge.

The game, pitting West London against East London, is something of a rarity, a traditional 15:00 hours Saturday kick-off.

As well as the fixture being a classic London derby there’s always a little extra spice when the two teams meet with the legend that is Frank Lampard having started his career with the Hammers.

The gaffer will be looking to get back to winning ways, in the Premier League, after losing to Manchester City, last weekend.

As usual, we’re running our Match Day Moments feature where we encourage you to leave your opinion, in the comment facility beneath this article, on a variety of subjects including, but not limited to:

1 – The build-up to the big London derby.

2 – The starting eleven selected by Frank Lampard.

3 – The action as it takes place at Stamford Bridge.

4 – Your thoughts in the immediate period that follows the sounding of the final whistle.

Here’s hoping that we’re all smiles this Saturday evening and celebrating another three points under the tenure of Frank Lampard.

Up the Chels!

Chelsea v West Ham?

Chelsea to score first!

It'll end 0-0

  • Tammy will be a big miss …. but i’m more worried about the defence …. waiting for Rudiger’s return … i feel he & Zouma should be our centre halves

  • I want to see a clean sheet today and a lot less giving the ball away going to be tough forget where they are in the league it’s a london derby one thing is we create chances so big opportunity for someone up front today currently we play good football but we give chances and don’t always take our own chances but we are a team that’s learning

  • Tammy was a huge miss & starting Pedro ahead of CHO/Willian always looked a bit of a stretch.
    Anyway it’s clear now we will eventually be in a fight for 4th …. Can’t afford any more of these results.

  • I think the set up was wrong from the beginning and Lamps should accept he was at fault for going with Giroud and Pedro from the off. For large parts of the game before the subs, we were doing nothing to hurt their defence save for one brilliant ball in from James which Giroud missed completely. I mean we played without tempo and cohesion and that was due to Pedro and Giroud who are way past their best and match rusty. So much as I will keep applauding Lamps for the progresses he has made already, the blame for this defeat rest solely on his shoulders

  • James was beaten too easily for the goal but it is another hard lesson learnt and experience gained for the young man. Lamps should go with youth a lot more and let them make mistakes as long as they are progressing and gaining experience. Hudson Odoi deserve more game time even though he has been below par lately but those young ones still need room to improve. Nobody is slating Tomori for recent drop in his performance because we know he has ability to flourish into a top defender soon. My honest opinion is that the coach need to keep playing with this young bloods even if they are going to make costly mistakes or end the season trophyless simply because we won’t have a better season to blend them in fully than this current one.

  • As I wrote earlier you should Not underestimate their position in league we had 19attempt and lost to their6 we concede too regular and don’t take chance however it’s a learning season and we may have to put up with a few more of these results bit disappointing but we can put it right Wednesday

  • Some days like that are going to come…
    This is not about giroud or pedro….
    We know pedro is finished at top level two seasons ago…
    Even odoi currently is as good as pedro.. Nothing special yet..just an overhyped English lad like others before him.
    The team was down mentally on Saturday… City, Valencia and west ham in 7 days was asking too much.
    Lampard must rotate… Giroud and pedro were supposed to be so fresh for this game… Willian needed rest, even pulisic,
    Jorginho tailed off from this period last season…
    A draw would have been OK….
    The issue I had with lampard was, he should have introduced Michy than Odoi.
