West Ham United host early leaders Chelsea this weekend after finally achieving their first Premier League win of the Manuel Pellegrini era against Everton last time out.

The vicotry was badly needed after the Hammers opened their top flight campaign with four defeats from four, including lifeless home performances against Bournemouth and newly-promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers.

However, remains to be seen whether they will be able to capitalise on their win at Goodison Park when the unbeaten Chelsea arrive in East London on Sunday.

Our unique algorithm has predicted the Hammers side it believes will start the game.

Football Whispers uses data to predict teams’ starting XIs, taking into account injuries, suspensions, the statistical likelihood of a player being selected, the competition the match is in, players’ previous performances and the opponent’s style.
