The Boxing Day bonanza will begin with a cracking match. League leading Chelsea, only defeat by Newcastle United and with their star player, Eden Hazard doubtful with an ankle knock, take on a 4th place West Ham side that have bowled over Manchester City and Liverpool so far this season. Mark Noble will return for the Hammers side after an ankle injury kept him out almost a month. Sakho's 8 goals in the league is a league tied fourth best and Diego Costa's 11 has him in second just one goal behind Sergio Aguero for Manchester City. West Ham striker Andy Carroll has scored 3 times in as many games for the Hammers, and has stated there will be "no 19th century football" this time around, referring to the corresponding 0-0 fixture last year that saw Chelsea come away with nothing for their thirty shots. Predictions: Hazard doesn't play. Costa scores. Valencia's scores another stunner to nab a point. Chelsea 1-1 West Ham United
@Meetzz Never! West Ham till I die! I hope we win the derby. Shades of 2012.
2-0 with hazard or without...
