After lifting the League Cup trophy on Sunday, it’s back to business for Chelsea with a trip to Upton Park to take on West Ham.

Jose Mourinho got his hands on his first piece of major silverware since winning La Liga with Real Madrid in 2012 and will continue his quest for a fourth Premier League crown on Wednesday.

With the League Cup in their pocket, Chelsea are expected to push even harder for the league title.

Chelsea have won 13 and lost just 1 of their last 17 Barclays Premier League games against the Hammers and Jose Mourinho has a record of 6 wins and no defeats in seven League matches as a coach against West Ham.

The Blues have not been in their best shape lately, but they have lost just two of their last 16 Premier League away games and should come to West Ham full of confidence after the League Cup win against Tottenham.

The Hammers had a good start to the season but have dropped down to the ninth spot on the Premier League table after defeat at home to Crystal Palace at the weekend. They have failed to score in five of their last six Premier League matches against Chelsea, including the last four in a row.

Despite the obvious facts, this could still be a tough game for the Blues who are missing key player Nemanja Matic as he serves the final game of his ban for a red card at Burnley. Fellow midfielder John Obi Mikel is also out with a knee injury that will keep him sidelined for a month.

So far this season, West Ham have beaten Liverpool and Manchester City at home and Mourinho is not taking the 3 points against the Hammers for granted.

“They can be everything,” he said.

“[West Ham are] defensively very strong, which they showed agaіnst us a few times. They can also be very dangerous in attack.”
