Chelsea will on Wednesday night face West Ham United in the English Premier League (EPL) and the London Derby promises to be another exciting encounter with a lot at stake for both teams.
Frank Lampard's team aims to make a full top 4 claim while the David Moyes side will need a win to stay off the relegation zone.
Tensions are high in the two London teams with both having obligations to live up to. AllNews believes the blues signed Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech on the promise that champions league football is on the table, and fans' requirements cannot be overlooked. A win would see that coming true and even a chance of chasing Manchester City till the last day.
Just a few miles away, in the heart of the Hammers, terror grips tight, knowing fully well that Championship football beckons.
David Moyes's side, since the restart, has not been on top form with 2 losses in a row; one at home to Wolves and the other to Tottenham Hotspur away from home. They are levelled on the same point with Bournemouth, Aston Villa at 27 points apiece. Any more slips would see they fall deep into the relegation zone.
They have an advantage of playing on familiar grounds, though no fans, but stats, since the corona break was called off, has shown teams have greater chances of winning on home turf.
The EPL title race is over with Liverpool crowned the champions last week with little help from the Blues but the league still shows all signs of a rollercoaster ride going forward.
