Rafael Benitez’s Blues will host Sam Allardyce’s men on the back of Thursday night’s Europa League last-16 second leg against Steaua Bucharest and fresh from their battling FA Cup draw at Old Trafford last weekend.
With Tottenham slipping up at Anfield last Sunday, Chelsea can overtake their top-four rivals with a win over West Ham, providing Spurs, who have played a game more than the west Londoners, do not beat Fulham.
West Ham appear to be edging towards Premier League survival, with the Hammers currently nine points above the drop zone on 33.
But for Chelsea, Champions League qualification will be considered the bare minimum result from a turbulent campaign after the Blues lifted Europe’s top club trophy for the first time last season.
It would simply be unthinkable that Chelsea could miss out on a Champions League spot with the quality that they have at their disposal, so Sunday’s clash against West Ham is a must-win if they are to stay on course for a top-four finish.
