West Ham were unfortunate to lose to Manchester City last weekend after taking something of a shock lead at the Etihad. They are still yet to pick up a first win since David Moyes took charge and that wait is expected to continue as an in-form Chelsea make the short trip to East London on Saturday. A sixth league win in seven for Antonio Conte’s men is in the offing.

December 2012 saw these two sides face off with Upton Park as the setting and it would be the home side who would be celebrating after this lunchtime fixture reached its conclusion. The Hammers mounted a late comeback which saw them score three unanswered goals after Juan Mata had put Chelsea ahead early on. A 3-1 win for West Ham and local bragging rights for a few months least.
