West Ham and Chelsea go head-to-head tonight as the Premier League's 'Project Restart' rolls on. Don't miss a kick by following our West Ham vs Chelsea live stream guide below.

Fourth-place Chelsea make the short journey across the capital to take on The Hammers at their London Stadium. Though not strictly a derby, there is no love lost between these two London clubs and plenty to play for at both ends of the table.

The Pensioners have won all three of their games since the English football returned in June, including a 2-1 victory against reigning champions Manchester City in their last Premier League game and an FA Cup quarter-final win at Leicester that sees them through to the final four teams in the competition. Frank Lampard's men will want to continue their good run of form in order to cement their place in the Champions League positions.

Their opponents West Ham have fared differently during Project Restart, notching two 2-0 defeats in their return to competitive football. David Moyes' team are struggling at the bottom end of the Premier League table with a relegation battle on their hands. The Hammers have lost five of their last six games and desperately need to start picking up points to avoid the drop.

Given the post-lockdown form, Chelsea look the clear favorites against a struggling West Ham though the Blues have won just once in the last five meetings of these teams.
