West Ham will be looking to repeat last year's result against Chelsea at Upton Park on Saturday.
Last year Juan Mata's goal gave Chelsea a half-time lead at Upton Park, but West Ham's Carlton Cole equalized before Mohamed Diame and Modibo Maiga found the back of the net.
Jose Mourinho's return to Stamford Bridge has been uneasy and he will be looking to bounce back from his side's 2-0 defeat at Newcastle.
Still, Mourinho has had fond memories against West Ham boss Sam Allardyce. Mourinho led Chelsea to the club's first championship in 50 years in 2005 at Reebok Stadium when Allardyce's was in charge of Bolton.
Chelsea is on a two-game winless run in the league after the Newcastle defeat and controversial 2-2 draw with West Brom last time out.
West Ham will also be looking to regain proper form after their 3-1 pounding at the hands of Chris Hughton's Norwich.
Chelsea does have some personnel issues to contend with as left-back Ashley Cole, who is in the Chelsea squad, is still overcoming a rib injury.
Striker Fernando Torres is back in training following an adductor injury sustained in training at the start of the month, but is not yet ready to return and Midfielder Marco van Ginkel is out long-term with a knee injury.
Still West Ham will be surely motived before this match since they will be in the relegation zone by the time they kick off, if Stoke and Fulham do not drop points.
The Hammers have not had a good time at home and have only one win in front of home supporters, but Chelsea have won only one away game in the league, losing two and drawing twice.
Kick off for the match is at 12:30 p.m. and can be watched online here.
