Chelsea travel to West Ham in a key match at both ends of the Premier League table.

The Blues are in fine form since the restart as they look to secure a top four finish, while the Hammers have not scored yet in back-to-back defeats.

Victory for David Moyes’ side would hand West Ham a famous double – for the first time since 2002/03.

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines

Aaron Cresswell’s strike was enough to separate the sides at Stamford Bridge back in November.

Here is how you can watch the game on television or on a live stream.

When is it and what time is kick-off?

The match will begin at 8:15pm on Wednesday 1 July at the London Stadium.

How can I watch it online and on TV?

The match will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Main Event and Premier League from 8pm with coverage starting at the conclusion of Everton vs Leicester and Bournemouth vs Newcastle.

Team news

Sebastien Haller, Arthur Masuaku and Angelo Ogbonna are “getting closer” to a return but this game comes too soon for the trio.

Christian Pulisic has a calf problem after limping off against Leicester in the FA Cup, while Andreas Christensen is in contention to return after a hip problem forced him out of the game at the weekend.

Predicted line-ups

West Ham: Fabianski; Fredericks, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Soucek, Rice, Noble; Bowen, Antonio, Fornals

Chelsea: Kepa; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger, Alonso; Kovacic, Kante, Mount; Willian, Abraham, Pulisic

Odds

West Ham: 5/1

Draw: 10/3

Chelsea: 8/15

Prediction

While West Ham will be confident of frustrating their London rivals after November’s famous win, Chelsea are in fine form with plenty of options for Frank Lampard to rotate and maintain their high standard since the restart. As well as possessing a threat going forward, the Blues are starting to find some consistency at the back, which is a problem for West Ham, who are desperate for goals. We’ll go with the form heading into this one and a 2-0 victory for the Blues.
