Matt Jarvis has urged West Ham United to kick-start their Premier League season by beating London rivals Chelsea on Saturday.

Sam Allardyce’s men came from 1-0 behind to secure a memorable 3-1 victory over Rafael Benitez’s Blues outfit at Upton Park last season.

“I think it was the highlight of last season really,” Jarvis said.

“It was a fantastic win and it was just a really good time for us and it was fantastic for the fans.

“We came out second half and played some fantastic football and dominated to score three goals. Mo came off the bench and was superb, but I think the whole team played well that day.”

The Hammers have secured one win in their last five top-flight games, but West Ham winger Jarvis believes the east London side have a good chance of beating Chelsea in what is proving to be an unpredictable season.

“I think there is always a chance – we did it last year,” he added.

“The league has shown already that everyone is beating everyone else.

“No-one has been dominant at the moment, so hopefully we can show the qualities we did last year and get a good result.

“We are at home, we have our fans behind us, we need a good result and so hopefully we can get one.”
