CHELSEA face a second Premier League London derby in a week, and they’ll hope it goes better than the first one.
The Blues were thumped 4-2 by Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday on a calamitous night which ended with captain Cesar Azpilicueta arguing with a fan.
After that result, Thomas Tuchel’s men remain in third place and should still be able to claim a Champions League spot barring an end-of-season collapse.
West Ham will have one eye on Thursday’s Europa League semi-final against Frankfurt but Hammers fans will still expect a big performance against their London rivals.
David Moyes’ men’s most likely route to the Champions League is through the Europa League, but they still have an outside chance of taking the league path to Europe’s elite club competition.
