Chelsea will look to quickly bounce back from their latest setback when they welcome West Ham United to Stamford Bridge for their Premier League Matchday four tie on Saturday. The Blues have made a difficult start to the new Premier League campaign as they recorded their second defeat in the opening five matches last time out. They crushed to a disappointing 2-1 loss at Southampton last Tuesday night. They have now dropped eight points in their opening five matches and they currently sit 10 in the league standings on seven points. They were tipped to challenge Manchester City and Liverpool for the league title after winning the Champions League just over a year ago, they have plenty of difficulties on and off the pitch and pressure is mounting on Thomas Tuchel. West Ham, meanwhile, have made even a worse start to the campaign collecting just four points from five matches, but they have been showing some signs of life in recent weeks. They beat Aston Villa on the road then followed it up with a hard-fought 1-1 against Tottenham and they will feel confident of piling even more pressure on Chelsea.
