Bilic keen to learn from West Ham's turbulent season

07 March 2017

West Ham are optimistic that striker Andy Carroll, who has been out for a month with a groin injury, will be fit to make his comeback on Monday. His ability to find mismatches on a football pitch is impressive, and you'll often find him peeling off towards the full-back in order to create a much easier aerial duel for himself.

The squad is little different to the one that finished tenth last season, but Conte's personal touch has rebuilt confidence.

They were hopeful of taking three points when they travelled the short distance to Watford last Saturday.

Hazard has returned to excellent form after ghosting his way through the campaign previous year, but picked up a knock after a kick in training.

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard has said that his side are looking to wrap up the Premier League title "as soon as possible" following their 2-1 victory over West Ham United this evening.

"We started our season aiming to fight until the end to win the title and to be in the right position to go into next -season's Champions League".

All these guys that cheat should be the ones that should be put out on a pedestal like 'that guy's a cheat.' He shouldn't be here. The pair first clashed in November as they battled to a majority draw, which saw Woodley retain the belt.

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic has moved to end rumours linking the club with a new goalkeeper in the summer transfer window as he insisted that he is very happy with the options he now has at his disposal. A new contract for Michail Antonio, who was suspended for the Chelsea game, should be a priority.

This is the first league meeting between the sides at the London Stadium - the Hammers won just two of their last 10 Premier League games against Chelsea at Upton Park.

West Ham player ratings: Randolph 8, Kouyate 7, Fonte 6, Reid 5, Cresswell 6, Noble 5, Obiang 4, Lanzini 7, Feghouli 3, Carroll 4, Snodgrass 6. Another team in Chelsea's position might have wobbled. Chelsea have kept only one clean sheet in their last five games in all competitions, and they stand a chance to improve their clean sheet record to two after the game at a price of (2.13).

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic would not change a thing about the club's topsy-turvy campaign, saying both he and his players were stronger for the "priceless" experience.

Yes - the match will be televised on Sky Sports in the UK.

Not only is it comforting for the Bray man, but also for Irish fans as Randolph is the only Irish goalkeeper now playing regular Premier League football.
