Team News:

Wingers Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi have been absent for Chelsea in recent matches, yet Lampard has refused to tweak his favoured 4-3-3 formation.

One or both of those players could return on Monday evening, though they are unlikely to slot straight into the starting lineup.

Questions have been asked of summer signings Timo Werner and Kai Havertz in recent weeks, so changes can be expected in midfield and attack.

As for West Ham, Moyes has hinted that he will rotate his side a bit to keep things fresh over the festive period.

Jarrod Bowen picked up a knock last time out and may be one of those to drop out of the XI, while left-back Aaron Cresswell is another fitness doubt.

Versatile attacker Michail Antonio has not featured since the end of November, meanwhile, but he has a chance of making the squad for this trip across London.

Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; James, Zouma, Silva, Chilwell; Kovacic, Kante, Mount; Pulisic, Giroud, Werner

West Ham United possible starting lineup:
Fabianski; Coufal, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Rice, Soucek; Snodgrass, Benrahma, Fornals; Haller
