Chelsea won't drop points at West Ham.


Chelsea travel to West Ham after picking up the first major silverware of the season.

West Ham United host Chelsea on Wednesday night and Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson believes Chelsea have too much for the Hammers at this point.

The Blues beat Spurs in the Capital One Cup final at Wembley to seal their first trophy of a potential three this season. Mourinho’s side top the Premier League table with 5 points and a game in hand to play, following City’s 2-1 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday.

The Hammers started the campaign on a high but have stuttered a little and find themselves in ninth position and former Arsenal midfielder thinks Chelsea won’t slip up at Upton Park.

Merson said: "The crowd are on Sam Allardyce’s back at Upton Park. It’s harsh, but after starting off so well people thought they were going to carry on, but it’s hard.

"The top teams come to the fore right at the end, and West Ham and Southampton now just seem to be a little bit short.

"You could tell after the final at Wembley that Chelsea were buzzing. That’s one of three potential trophies this season and you could see Mourinho’s delight.

"He’s a winner, and I don’t think they’ll slip again. Especially at Upton Park against a wounded West Ham."
