West Ham and Chelsea both started their Premier League seasons with draws, against Bournemouth and Liverpool respectively.
Jarrod Bowen scored a screamer on the south coast to put West Ham into the lead, but Bournemouth fought back with an equaliser. New arrivals seem imminent at West Ham, though, something that will certainly please David Moyes as the pressure mounts following the departure of Declan Rice.
Mauricio Pochettino got off to an encouraging start with life at Chelsea, holding Liverpool to a draw at Stamford Bridge. The visitors started strongly and looked to be running away with it at one point, but Chelsea fought back into the game and finished well themselves.
With Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia since joining the squad, Chelsea are bolstered in midfield and look destined to challenge at the sharp end of the table once more.
Kick-off is at 4.30pm BST. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League wherever you are.
West Ham United have everyone fit and suspension-free to play against Chelsea.
Chelsea have Christopher Nkunku and Wesley Fofana both out with a severe knee injuries, while Armando Broja is out until September. However, Benoit Badiashile and Trevoh Chalobah are at the end of their rehabilitation programmes and could be fit to at least make the bench against West Ham.
West Ham: D

West Ham vs Chelsea will be played at the London Stadium in Stratford, London, which has a capacity of 60,000.
Kick-off and channel
West Ham vs Chelsea kick-off is at 4.30pm BST on Sunday 20 August in the UK. The game is on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Event in the UK.
In the US, kick-off time is 11.30am ET / 8.30am PT. The match will be shown on NBC in the US. See below for international broadcast options.
If you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won’t be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t’internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that’s a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Premier League, FourFourTwo currently recommends:
