CHE Vs WHU Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Dwindling Chelsea take to the land of today’s London derby in dire need of three points.
Long forgotten is the 18 match unbeaten spree Chelsea were on not too long back. The last two defeats have spilt cold water on all the work the club had done across the last couple of months with the side regressing as a unit across the last week.
Failing to a 2-1 defeat when they took on Wolverhampton, Chelsea have now lost of their last two matches in the league. More worryingly, it’s the performances which have sparked panic amongst the club’s ardent supporters with Chelsea being completely listless and lacklustre in those affairs.
The defeats to Wolverhampton and Everton mean Chelsea are yet to win a contest against a top 10 side this season with the club scoring just once against clubs in the bracket. It’s an extremely worrisome figure for a side which shelved out over 200 million for transfers this term.
CHE Vs WHU Fantasy Probable Winner
Although they sit in 10th place, West Ham find themselves separated from Chelsea by just the lone point. The side has gone unbeaten in four of its last five outings, a remarkable set of results for a club which was been touted as a relegation contender this season.
They’ll make life an excruciating headache for Chelsea but we envisage the hosts doing enough to win this outing.

As has become the norm across the course of the last couple of seasons, Lukasz Fabianski has become a prized entity for West Ham. And he’s shown why this season as well, raking in a string of saves for the club to see him be our pick for the encounter.
His pinch perfect cross was well received by Olivier Giroud to see us make Ben Chilwell the first pick from Chelsea. We have CBs Thiago Silva and Kurt Zouma give him company for the forthcoming encounter, two names who have been largely astute and articulate at the back for the club.
Christian Pulisic was electric in the first half against Wolverhampton, peddling out a performance which alluded towards what he’s capable of when utilised judiciously by Lampard. Midfielder N’Golo Kante will be linking up with him, a player who has been at his imperious best this term.
Chelsea linked Declan Rice will be eager to once again showcase his wares to Chelsea. Giving him company is Tomas Soucek who has been an unlikely source of goals for the club with him coming up with the goods on three occasions.
Chelsea’s Timo Werner continues to remain the side’s top scorer with four goals and three assists to see him be a must have pick for us. Olivier Giroud’s goal the last time around sees him earn a place in our team as well.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Werner’s seven goal contributions will see him captain our team while Giroud is the vice-captain.
Lukasz, Ben, Zouma, Silva, Soucek, Kante, Rice, Pulisic, Giroud, Werner
