The Blues head into the game looking to return to winning ways after the disappointment of their 3-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge last weekend.
That result dealt a serious blow to Chelsea FC’s hopes of finishing in the top four this season, with Antonio Conte’s men now in fifth place and eight points behind fourth-placed Spurs with just eight games left to play this season.
Chelsea FC will be looking to do whatever they can to try and break back into the top four before the season is out.
And former Liverpool FC star Lawrenson is fully expecting to see the Blues claim a comfortable win over the Hammers.
Writing in his column for BBC Sport, Lawrenson said: “I look at what is happening at Chelsea and think that Antonio Conte will be leaving at the end of the season. It is hard to see any other outcome.
“It is also difficult to see the Blues getting back into the Champions League places after they lost to Spurs – but they should still have too much for West Ham.
“The Hammers will be buoyed by their win over Saints last time out, but do I think they have got enough to go to Stamford Bridge and come away unbeaten? No, I don’t.”
Alvaro Morata gave Chelsea FC the lead last weekend but Christian Eriksen equalised for Spurs before half-time, and Dele Alli scored twice in the second half to wrap up the three points for Mauricio Pochettino’s men at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea FC do still have the FA Cup to play for and will take on Southampton in the semi-finals later this month.
