West Ham v Chelsea LIVE TEXT – Here’s the team

West Ham v Chelsea 

Wednesday October 26th –

Kick-off at 7.45pm. 

The Irons are taking this very seriously with just the two changes –  Darren Randolph  and Aaron Cresswell

Chelsea roll the dice and come up with seven changes. John Terry starts, as Nathaniel Chalobah and Michy Batshuayi also come in.

Guessing a bit but it looks like 3-5-1-1 :  3: Reid, Ogbonna, Kouyate ; Antonio, Noble, Obiang Fernandes,Cresswell;  Payet , Lanzini. Or it could be Antonio up there and Lanzini in midfield. One or the other will be playing as a false centre forward by looks of it.

Teams emerging from tunnel

Antonio at striker  ref Craig Pawson

3/ Early Chelsea pressure and corner – Wilian corner lifted well over top by Terry

5/Payet whips inn free kick – scramble – keeper impeded Chelsea free kick

7/ Magnificent Randolph save as Kante allowed to run through defence

10 Magnificent Payet free kick low into area – Luiz puts over top

11/ GOAL: Kouyate – great Noble cross and fantastic header top corner 1-0

15/ Antonio inches wide after fabulus work from Lanzini and Payet

17/ Hammers attack attack attack – Chesea totally and fully stretched

20/  Chalobah fiercest possible drive – magnificently turned over by Randolph

Antonio making such a difference up front, running, holding up, bringing people in – what a star Michail is anywhere

29 Poor Obiang pass leads to elaborate Chelsea attack which takes them into our area but cleared up at back

30 Antonio sets up Lanzini from close range but he misses wide

 Winston Reid magnificent all night and easily seeing off Batshuayi thus far

37 Dipping in swinging free kick from Dim turned away somehow by Begovic

42/ Obiang drive somehow kept out by keeper
