Is Chelsea vs West Ham on TV? Kick-off time, match odds and team news – Mirror Online
Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea will be looking to bounce back from defeat for the second time already this campaign when they face David Moyes’ West Ham this weekend
Chelsea and West Ham rekindle their London rivalry this weekend when they go head-to-head at Stamford Bridge, with both sides looking to kick-on and climb further up the Premier League table.
The Blues succumbed to their second defeat of the season already in midweek with a 2-1 defeat at Southampton, despite Raheem Sterling giving them the lead, and more dropped points in this fixture would resemble worrying times for Thomas Tuchel.
They now face the Hammers, who recorded their first win of the season against Aston Villa last weekend, before holding Tottenham Hotspur to a 1-1 draw on Wednesday, and will now look to extend their current unbeaten run to three matches.
When is Chelsea vs West Ham?
Chelsea vs West Ham will kick-off at 3pm on Saturday, September 3 at Stamford Bridge.
The last meeting between these two sides came back in April, when the Blues secured a late 1-0 victory over their visitors in west London.
After a goalless first half, things eventually sprung into life in the second 45 minutes. West Ham were reduced to 10-men through Craig Dawson, before Jorginho missed an 87th minute penalty, yet Christian Pulisic popped up with a 90th minute winner to secure all three points for the hosts.

Following Tuesday’s 2-1 defeat to Southampton, as well as his side’s opening Champions League fixture in three days’ time, Tuchel can be expected to make changes and rotate his squad for the visit of West Ham, as the Blues look for a return to winning ways.
The German will be hoping to welcome back Reece James (illness) and Trevoh Chalobah (knee) to the side, although Ruben Loftus-Cheek and N’Golo Kante (both hamstring) are out. Conor Gallagher is back from suspension, while new signings Wesley Fofana, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Denis Zakaria will be hoping to make their debuts.

As for the Hammers, they followed up their first win of the season last weekend with a draw against Tottenham on Wednesday, but with a return to European football to come next week, David Moyes could also consider some form of rotation to keep things fresh.
Late decisions will be made on whether Craig Dawson (thigh), Aaron Cresswell (groin) and Gianluca Scamacca (illness) are fit enough to feature, but Ben Johnson (thigh) and Nayef Aguerd (ankle) are out. Summer signing Emerson will be hoping to feature against his former club, while fellow new recruit Lucas Paqueta could make his full debut.
