Chelsea have a London Derby to navigate this weekend in the Premier League as they attempt to bounce back from the setback of losing to champions Manchester City in their last league game.

The Blues had won their last six league games before the Manchester City match which ended in a 2-1 defeat at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City had to come from behind to beat Chelsea whom they leapfrog into third position as a result of the win, while the Blues drop from third to fourth spot at the end of the game.

Chelsea can bounce back from that Manchester City loss at the first time of asking when they take on an hapless West Ham United side this weekend.

The London Derby between Chelsea and West Ham United is one of the week 14 games tomorrow.

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is a big doubt for the West Ham game after suffering a hip problem during the Champions League match at Valencia in midweek.

The game ended 1-1 at the Mestalla as Chelsea will have to wait for qualification for the last 16 as a result.

Probable Chelsea XI vs West Ham: Kepa Arrizabalaga; Cesar Azpilicueta, Fikayo Tomori, Kurt Zouma, Recce James; Jorginho, Mason Mount, N’Golo Kante; Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic and Willian.

Chelsea have been very poor in the Premier League in recent weeks as highlighted by the disappointing 1-0 loss at the home of injury-hit Newcastle United at the weekend in their last league game and it doesn’t get better when they face London rivals and rejuvenated team Arsenal at home on Tuesday night.

The Blues can take solace from the earlier meeting between the two teams this season in the Premier League which saw Chelsea come from behind to beat Arsenal 2-1 away from home with the aid of two late goals.

Chelsea have won just one of their last four games in the Premier League but they are still able to hang on to their place in the top-four positions on the league log.

They have a five-point advantage over fifth-placed Manchester United and a win over Arsenal will extend it to eight points with the Red Devils not in action until Wednesday when they face Burnley at home.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard could make some changes to his team especially in defence ahead of the London Derby clash with the Gunners.

Chelsea XI vs Arsenal: Kepa Arrizabalaga; Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, Kurt Zouma, Emerson Palmieri; Jorginho, Mason Mount, N’Golo Kante; Willian, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Tammy Abraham.

Victor Moses

According to Sky Sports, Chelsea winger Victor Moses has arrived Inter Milan ahead of his medical.

Inter Milan director Piero Ausilio had earlier said that the Nerazzuri has an agreement in place for Victor Moses with Chelsea and the player is in Italy to complete his transfer.

He had six months left on his loan deal to Turkish Super Lig giants Fenerbahce whom he joined from Chelsea in an 18-month loan deal in January 2019.

Victor Moses had a very good start to his loan career with the Turkish club last season but he was not able to enjoy the same level of success at the start of this campaign as he has struggled for fitness thus restricting him to just six matches this season in the colors of Fenerbahce.

If he joins Inter Milan, Victor Moses would be the fourth player from the Premier League to join the Italians in the last six months after Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez and Ashley Young.

Romelu Lukaku and Sanchez joined the Nerazzuri last year, while Young was a £1.3m signing from Manchester United.

Edinson Cavani

French giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) officials have delivered a firm transfer verdict on striker Edinson Cavani who is a target for both Manchester United and Chelsea.

According to Goal via one of its publications, PSG sporting director Leonardo and club manager Thomas Tuchel see Edison Cavani as an important part of their squad and they don’t want him to leave the club this month despite the fact that the Uruguayan international player has six months remaining on his PSG contract at the moment.

Several clubs are ready to offer PSG some money for the final six months of the player’s contract but club officials prefer to lose his services this summer on a free transfer.

Edinson Cavani had been a regular in the PSG starting XI for several years until last summer when the French champions signed Mauro Icardi on loan from Inter Milan in the Italian Serie A.

Mauro Icardi has taken his spot in the first team aided by the injury to Edison Cavani at the start of the season.

Atletico Madrid are in pole position to sign Edison Cavani and have already offered €10m for him though it was turned down by PSG who says he is not for sale.

Timo Werner

Chelsea might lose out to Premier League rivals Liverpool in the race to sign RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner who has painted the German Bundesliga with goals this season.

This is according to German publication Bild which stated that Timo Werner prefers a move to Liverpool over Chelsea.

It was revealed that the German international wants a transfer to the Premier League this summer which is a plus to both Liverpool and Chelsea.

Timo Werner was initially linked with a January move to the Premier League only for him to confirm that he’ll be staying with RB Leipzig throughout this season.

The petite German attacker has been in red-hot form for RB Leipzig who are at the summit in the top flight of German football.

RB Leipzig have a four-point lead at the top of the German Bundesliga table after 18 games and Timo Werner has contributed immensely to that achievement.

Werner has scored 20 goals in the league this season which is more than any other player in the division and alongside Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski who also has 20 goals to his name.

In total, Timo Werner has scored 25 goals in 25 games for his club who are also in the last 16 of the Champions League.

Chelsea player Victor Moses is closing in on a move to Inter Milan whose manager Antonio Conte is eager to reunite with the former Super Eagles of Nigeria star.

Victor Moses is set for a medical at the San Siro club though Italian publication Corriere dello Sport stated that Inter Milan will have to convince Turkish giants Fenerbahce to cut short the player’s loan deal at the club.

The Chelsea loanee has been at Fenerbahce since last year January having joined them on an 18-month loan deal with the option of a permanent transfer afterward.

Victor Moses has six months left to run on that loan deal though he has not been a regular for the Turkish team this season due to injury problems.

Chelsea are his parent club and they don’t have any problem sanctioning a loan move to Inter Milan on the condition that the Italians will pay £10m for his transfer in the summer after his short-term loan deal has ended.

Victor Moses played his best football for Chelsea under Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte and they could link up again at the San Siro.

They won the 2016/17 Premier League title together with Victor Moses as a right wing-back.

In an interview with French publication L’Equipe, Boubakary Soumare said that he wants to do a full season at Lille thereby ruling out a switch during this winter transfer window.

Boubakary Soumare wants to concentrate on playing well for Lille this season before thinking about any move away from the club.

Premier League sides Chelsea and Manchester United could both miss out on the signing of Paris Saint Germain (PSG) striker Edinson Cavani after another competitor lodged a bid for the player.

Edinson Cavani is the subject of a €10m bid from Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid who are the frontrunners for the player.

PSG sporting director Leonardo confirmed the Atletico Madrid bid shortly after the French Cup win over Lorient who are in the second tier of French football these days.

Leonardo made this known in a chat with reporters after the Lorient game.

Chelsea and Manchester United are in the market for a new striker and Edinson Cavani is at the top of their shortlist.

Blues boss Frank Lampard doesn’t trust his striker options of Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi who are backups to leading striker Tammy Abraham who is the leading scorer for his team this season.

Tammy Abraham has scored 15 goals in all competitions this term including 13 goals in the Premier League.

For Manchester United, the striker search has been intensified following the news that leading goalscorer Marcus Rashford will miss a lot of games as a result of a back issue.

Lewis Dunk

Europa League holders Chelsea are eyeing a big-money move for a Premier League defender according to the various reports coming out from the British media.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has money to spend in this transfer window and he has identified the centre back position as one of the areas to strengthen.

The specific publication via the Daily Star revealed that Chelsea are planning a £48m bid for Brighton and Hove Albion skipper Lewis Dunk.

It remains to be seen whether the Seagulls would want to sell Lewis Dunk in the middle of the season as they are in a battle to avoid the drop in the Premier League.

Lewis Dunk is undoubtedly the best centre back in the Brighton squad.

Frank Lampard and Chelsea have already lost eight games in the Premier League this season. In addition, defence has been the Achilles heel for the Blues this season but they have still managed to keep their place in the top four of the league.

They have a five-point lead over Manchester United with 15 games left to play in the Premier League.

Only the first four spots on the Premier League table will guarantee a place in the Champions League next season.
