Chelsea welcomes one of their London rivals to Stamford Bridge on Sunday at West Ham visits for a Premier League match.

Chelsea (fifth place, 56 points) is 11 points back of a Champions League spot and needs to win to have any hope of even fighting for fourth. Meanwhile, West Ham (14th place, 33 points) is just five clear of the drop zone. They need points fast, and a draw here would be a nice result.

 Champions Chelsea host West Ham on Sunday looking to gain three points to aid their fading top-four aspirations after last weekend’s defeat to Tottenham.

By the time the Blues take to the field, they may no longer be the champions, with Manchester City able to clinch the title with a win in the Manchester derby on Saturday. With a poor defence of the title, Antonio Conte will most likely leave the club in the summer, but will be looking to go out on a high.

 Chelsea lie eight points off the top four in fifth, but have an FA Cup semi final looming against relegation-threatened Southampton in two weeks as a last chance of silverware for the Italian.

Back in April 2011, the Hammers travelled to Stamford Bridge bottom-of-the-table and looking to score a priceless win against the reigning champions. With ex-Chelsea boss Avram Grant in the hot seat, the London club found themselves at the summit with five games to play, in a desperate bid to avoid relegation.

Their hosts, meanwhile, were lagging behind Manchester United in the title race but still holding faint hopes of a second straight championship. Ex-Hammer Frank Lampard opened the scoring against his boyhood club on the stroke of half time, firing home from an Ashley Cole cross.
