West Ham vs Chelsea: Team news

James Ward-Prowse is expected to make his debut for the hosts following his switch from Southampton.

Paqueta will play unless there’s further developments in a potential transfer to Man City, but David Moyes has no fresh injuries to contend with.

Chelsea are set to be without their captain Reece James who has picked up yet another injury.

James is expected to miss the next few weeks of action as he recovers from a hamstring problem.

The Blues will likely give Caicedo his first start since his record move while Lavia may also get his first minutes at his new club.

Meanwhile, Wesley Fofana and Christopher Nkunku will both be sidelined for months, while Benoit Badiashile and Armando Broja will need late fitness tests.

West Ham vs Chelsea: What has been said?

Pochettino has said Chelsea’s moves for Caicedo and Lavia were ‘not a competition’ with Liverpool.

“That is the players’ decision,” said the Argentine. “They decide to come here.

“I think it’s not a competition, it’s the player’s decision to join us. It makes us happy and they talk very highly about our owners.”

On Lavia, he said: “I think we all know him, his quality, his profile. He’s the perfect player for this project. We are excited and happy to add him in the squad.”

On Chelsea’s British-record deal for Caicedo, he said: “Of course the club works really hard. The owners, the sporting directors, the job was amazing.

“To add this kind of player, it’s fantastic work from the club. It shows the work the owners and sporting directors are doing.”

On the possibility of both players making their debuts against West Ham on Sunday, he added: “We need to assess them. They have been stressful weeks for Moises and Romeo.

“We don’t need to rush with them. If they are ready tomorrow, they will be involved. If not, we will wait a few days more.”
