Chelsea take their unbeaten start to the season to the London Stadium as they face city rivals, West Ham, on Sunday at 1:30 PM. The Blues who have started the season in scintillating fashion having won five from five and play against a side who have come off the back of a good first win of the season against Everton 3-1 last Sunday.

Chelsea's Unbeaten Start

It has been an amazing start for Chelsea's new coach Maurizio Sarri who has masterminded the Blues best start to a Premier League season since Carlo Ancelotti's side won their first five games back in 2010. As well as coming off the back of five league wins, Chelsea won 1-0 on Thursday night against Greek side PAOK in their first Europa League tie.

Although on the night there was just a solitary goal from Willian to separate the sides, with many wasted chances they should've won the game by more. Some might say Chelsea have had a fairly straightforward start to the season. However, they have beaten Arsenal and won well at Newcastle [VIDEO], a side they normally come unstuck against.

If Chelsea does win against West Ham, it would be only the third time in the Premier League era that they've won their first six games, with the other times coming in 2005-2006 and 2009-2010, with them lifting the title on both occasions. Also, Maurizio Sarri could become just the third manager to win his first six Premier League games, with fellow Italian Carlo Ancelotti and Pep Guardiola achieving this too.

Chelsea has won five of their past six Premier League away games, and new signing Jorginho has the most attempted passes (505) and completed passes (461) so far this season in the league.

If Eden Hazard scores on Sunday, it could be the first time since November 2016 that he's scored in four consecutive Premier League games.

West Ham Looking for Back-to-Back Wins

After losing their first four matches, Manuel Pellegrini's men won their first match of the season last weekend against Everton 3-1 to kick-start their season. If the Hammers do win, it would be the first time since January 2017 that they've won back-to-back games. However, a defeat would see them lose their opening three league games for the first time. West Ham's record in London derbies doesn't have good reading, with them failing to win their last six (D4, L2), and have lost a remarkable 95 London derbies in the Premier League, the most by any side.

West Ham's discipline this season has seen them record the most yellow cards with 18, six more than anyone else. Their talisman this season has been Marko Arnautovic who has been involved with 11 of West Ham's last 16 Premier League goals, scoring seven and assisting four.

In the past seven meetings between the two sides in all competitions, West Ham has only lost twice, winning three and drawing two, including a 1-0 win last season thanks to Marko Arnautovic's goal. West Ham has even won three of the past four home games against Chelsea in all competitions having beaten them 2-1 in the League Cup in 2016 and 2-1 in the 2015-2016 season. If West Ham keeps a clean sheet, it will be the first time they've kept consecutive clean sheets since August 1969.

Will Chelsea win six on the bounce, or can West Ham inflict a first defeat of the season for Sarri's side? It's all set up to be a cracker!
