Match time is 3:15 pm EDT
Chelsea may have found its legs at just the right time.
The Blues, who also can call upon one of the deeper squads in the league (something that is important now), come into Wednesday on a roll. If Leicester City drops points in the early match, Chelsea will move past the Foxes into third place.
While this London Derby has usually been a tight one, with three wins each and two draws over the last eight head to head, West Ham United comes into this matchup in awful form: one win, two draws, and 10 losses since January 10. That is relegation form.
Chelsea is 9-3-3 over that same period, including five straight wins.
Do not expect Chelsea to show any mercy on its neighbors, in what could be an ugly encounter.
