West Ham take on rivals Chelsea in the London derby today hoping to keep hopes or a top four finish alive.

Hammers boss Slaven Bilic has decided to rest on-loan Fenerbahce winger Emmanuel Emenike going into the tie but he will be available off the bench – Diafro Sakho will instead be starting upfront.

West Ham could move into fourth place today with a victory if Manchester City lose their game.

Chelsea are unbeaten in 13 league game since Jose Mourinho’s departure but the Blues have won just two out of those games at home.
