Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has insisted that West Ham United will be hard to beat when the teams meet in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

The Blues, who are two points behind leaders Arsenal in the table, are expected to defeat the struggling Hammers at Stamford Bridge.

"Every match is difficult. I look to West Ham and I see them in trouble in the table but I feel a difficult match, new players, time to rest from the difficult Christmas period they had," BBC Sport quotes the Portuguese as saying.

Chelsea have won their last five matches in the Premier League.
