Chelsea team news: Injury, suspension list vs. West Ham United

Sports Mole rounds up all of Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with West Ham United.

Chelsea will be looking to make it back-to-back wins in the Premier League when they make the trip to the London Stadium to face West Ham United on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues will enter this weekend's contest off the back of a 2-1 victory at Watford on Wednesday, which ensured that they would remain at the top of the Premier League table.

Thomas Tuchel's side are seemingly involved in a three-way title race this season, sitting just one point clear of second-placed Manchester City and two points clear of third-placed Liverpool.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash with West Ham, who played out a 1-1 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion on Wednesday.
