Moyes delivers team news for Chelsea

West Ham look set to include the two new signings when Chelsea visit the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Both Edson Alvaraz and James Ward Prowse failed to make the squad at Bournemouth but manager David Moyes has revealed that both are available and that he has no injury problems.
It makes for a fascination discussion about how the midfield may look with Lucas Paqueta still at the club amid interest from Manchester City.
And it could even before inevitable injuries, departures or suspensions kick in later in the season we could be seeing the Hammers at their strongest over the campaign.
Moyes revealed at his pre-match presser explained both the new boys were available for the match suggesting both could be involved somewhere along the line.
He said: “James has Premier League experience and has scored and assisted goals throughout his career. Edson will bring us something as well and I hope both will be great signings for us.”
So trying to decide a starting eleven is tricky given that it’s not clear how up to fitness Alvarzs in particular and we could expect him to be on the bench
