Sky Sports’ weekend of local derbies kicks off at the Olympic Stadium as West Ham host Chelsea on Saturday lunchtime.
The Hammers enter this game in relegation zone whilst Chelsea can close the gap to Manchester United down to goal difference.
West Ham boss, David Moyes is set to drop Joe Hart from goal and bring in Adrian instead.
Mexican striker, Javier Hernandez could feature after five weeks out with a hamstring injury.
Winston Reid has also been out with same problem but faces a late fitness test.
Chelsea will be without Danny Drinkwater through illness.
Defender, David Luiz is also sidelined with a knee injury.
We could have a tight battle based on West Ham’s home and Chelsea’s away averages in certain areas.
|Shots on Target||3||4.57|
The Hammers have edge in corners and are more disciplined when it comes to fouls.
Chelsea however rule the key areas that could win matches, despite 1.1 shots separating them in the ‘Shots’ averages.
West Ham lost on Sunday at Manchester City but produced a strong performance against a tough side.
This game however marks the start of another tough week with Arsenal to come at home on Wednesday night.
Although the Blues are stronger when it comes to pushing forwards, I am predicting a draw because both sides will want to save some players for midweek.

Jake predicts: West Ham 1-2 Chelsea
