New manager Antonio Conte is beginning to stamp his authority on the Chelsea squad, and it is producing some excellent results.
The Blues started the season with three straight Premier League wins, although then suffered disappointing defeats against Liverpool and Arsenal, with the defence being called out for criticism.
However, Conte’s side have won their last three league games without conceding a goal, and looked in imperious form in their 4-0 thumping of Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United on Sunday.
The former Juventus and Italy manager has tweaked the system at Chelsea, reverting to three at the back which served him well at the two aforementioned clubs, and his current side will now look to reach the last eight of the League Cup when they travel to West Ham on Wednesday.
The Hammers have also picked up some important wins in recent weeks, with a 1-0 success at Crystal Palace followed up by a 1-0 home win over Sunderland at the weekend.
Slaven Bilic has also gone with three at the back in a bid to move West Ham up the table, and both managers will likely make changes to their sides when they meet at the London Stadium for the first time since the Hammers moved there in the summer.
