Chelsea 1-1 West Ham: Premier League TV channel, live streaming online, start time

Antonio Conte's side are aiming to bounce back from a historic 3-1 defeat to Tottenham last weekend, and face another London derby this time out

Chelsea take on West Ham in a London derby that they dare not lose on Sunday.

After last weekend's 3-1 loss to Tottenham, who also beat Stoke on Saturday, the Blues sit 11 points behind fourth-placed Spurs, and another defeat would surely see them staring down the barrel of Europa League football next season.

The Hammers, meanwhile, are 14th, but they are only five points clear of the relegation zone, and a few more victories are likely to be needed to confirm their survival.

Chelsea are desperate to turn the tide as they host West Ham in a third consecutive London derby in the Premier League.

Five defeats in their last seven league games have seen their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League hang by a thread, with an eight-point gap on fourth-placed Tottenham need closing with seven games remaining.

West Ham, meanwhile, took a huge step towards avoiding relegation with a barnstorming 3-0 win over Southampton and will be confident heading into the weekend, boosted by their 1-0 win over the Blues back in December.
