The West Ham XI to beat Chelsea

You’ve got to give West Ham United some real credit- after an awful start, it seems they’re finally beginning to turn their season around.

The Hammers have now picked up seven points from their last three Premier League games and the last-minute win over Sunderland provided another three much-needed points.

Slaven Bilic will hope recent results will allude to a brighter future ahead and it will definitely give his side confidence going into their EFL Cup fourth-round tie against Chelsea in the week.

Whilst cup tournaments won’t be at the forefront of Bilic’s thinking going forward, it’s a welcome break from a Premier League schedule that has often proved difficult this term.

But standing in the way on Wednesday evening is Chelsea, who will be no tough nut to crack, especially after their win over Manchester United this weekend.

However, we think the Hammers could be on for a cup upset in this one, especially if they pick this starting XI.
