Team News

Chelsea

If one had said that last season, Chelsea would be totally out of Europe for the 2016/2017 term, that individual would have received some quizzical looks. However, the Blues failed miserably in their title defense and ended up finishing in a very disappointing tenth spot. As a result, the London giants will now have to contend themselves with domestic affairs this term, and have brought in ex-Juventus coach Antonio Conte in an attempt to turn things around and help them to a better finish this May.

Conte, of course, has proven track record of success, having turned the Bianconeri from a struggling giant post-Calciopoli to the dominant force in Italian football. So this summer, Chelsea have brought in some new faces, including Leicester City's N'Golo Kante and Marseille's Michy Batshuayi in an attempt to freshen things up. The Italian  tactician, who led the Azzurri to the quarter-finals at this summer's Euro tournament, has made it clear that Chelsea intend to be a serious threat in the Premier League this season:

The hosts come into this game having had a pretty solid pre-season, with wins against AC Milan, Werder Bremen, and Liverpool, and a loss to Real Madrid. However, unlike their upcoming opponents, Chelsea have not featured in any actual competitive fixtures and it will remain to be seen if this could represent a slight disadvantage as they prepare to welcome familiar foes West Ham. 

West Ham

As for the Hammers, they will be coming into this game having recorded a well-deserved 4-2 aggregate win over Eastern European outfit NK Domžale. That result guaranteed Slaven Bilic's men a spot in the Europa League play-off round, which will begin with a clash against Romanian side Astra Giurgiu on Thursday. Last season saw the Croatian tactician guide the Hammers to their best ever result in the league as they picked up a record-setting 62 points to clinch seventh spot, and fans will hope to see even better things from the team this term.

West Ham were rather disappointing in pre-season, and only won one out of their six warm-up fixtures. They put in a good shift against Serie A champions Juventus, including clawing their way back from a 2-0 deficit, but were undone by a late goal to ultimately lose 3-2. Having managed to hold on to top player Dimitri Payet - despite his impressive showings for France at the Euro tournament - supporters will hope that the team will kick-start their Premier League campaign with a victory ahead of heading to Romania in a few days' time.
