The Hammers occupy the 19th spot on the league table with 14 points from 17 games played so far. They sank to their ninth defeat this season during the midweek when they lost 3-1 to fellow relegation battlers Bolton Wanderers.
Goals from Gary Cahill, Ivan Klasnic and Chung-Yong Lee nullified Alessandro Diamanti's goal for the visitors. Goalkeeper Robert Green’s howler gifted the first goal to Bolton and it was a nightmare thereafter. The loss plunged the Hammers into deeper trouble, while the win helped Bolton climb away from the relegation zone. Manager Gianfranco Zola will be a worried man ahead of the holiday fixtures as his side simply does not have the quality to score upfront. Robert Green's instability in goal is another worry for the Italian boss.
Meanwhile Chelsea maintained their three-point lead over Manchester United at the top of the table after seeing off Portsmouth by a 2-1 margin. Nicolas Anelka's 23rd minute strike was nullified by Frederick Piquionne in the 51st minute, but a late penalty from Frank Lampard gave Chelsea all three points.
This was the club's first win in five games and relieved the pressure on manager Carlo Ancelotti. The Blues have shown vulnerability against set pieces, which the former AC Milan boss has vowed to address. Didier Drogba could feature in this game after missing the last one through a back injury.
