Chelsea have restarted the season brilliantly with three victories on the bounce.

On Sunday, they reached the semi-final of the FA Cup with a 1-0 win over Leicester City, but they are straight back into Premier League action on Wednesday night.

The Blues take on West Ham at the London Stadium and they need to keep the momentum going as the top four race is set to go down to the wire.

For the first time since lockdown, the Blues have a couple of key injury concerns with Andreas Christensen and Christian Pulisic, but if both are fit then both play.

Lampard make six changes for the FA Cup win and he could make the exact same changes for the Premier League game. However, Mateo Kovacic should start.

The Croatian completely changed the match when he came on with his intensity and Lampard should use that from the beginning on Wednesday night.

Ross Barkley could make an impact off the bench once again, while Olivier Giroud should start over Tammy Abraham.

Harbord's team (4-3-3): Kepa; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Christensen, Alonso; Kovacic, Kante, Mount; Willian, Giroud, Pulisic.

The big question mark surrounds Christian Pulisic's fitness after he came off with a calf issue against Leicester. If he is left out then Ruben Loftus-Cheek is likely to come back in.

Kurt Zouma will retain his place if Andreas Christensen does not overcome his hip issue, while Ross Barkley deserves another start after his performance off the bench on Sunday.

That aside expect Lampard to go with a similar team to the one that defeated Manchester City with N'Golo Kante continuing at the base of midfield - unless Lampard feels now is time to rest him - and Olivier Giroud coming back in for Tammy Abraham, who was quiet at Leicester.

Smith's team (4-3-3) Kepa; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Zouma, Alonso; Kante; Barkley, Mount; Willian, Giroud, Loftus-Cheek
