The Hammers have significantly improved under David Moyes over the last couple of years, and are now looking to consistently battle for top-six place.
Chelsea have also improved massively under Thomas Tuchel, and winning the Champions League last season shows how far he can take the Blues.
With both sides battling at or near the top, we expect this derby to be one of the best in recent years, and football fans cannot wait to enjoy the spectacle.
