Chelsea vs West Ham

Alan Curbishley has warned that every West Ham player must be on their game tomorrow if West Ham want to extend their six match unbeaten run,

"When you play a top-four team you need a few things going for you," he said. "You also need your players to all be on form – you can not carry anyone."

Hayden Mullins believes West Ham have the away form to get a result,

"We won’t go there and fear them at all," Mullins said. "We know they are a great side and we know they are a hard team. It is a good game for us to go there and hit them on the break.

We have done that to a lot of teams away from home. We look quite good doing it and we know what we can do. Who knows? A couple of chances and a bit of luck on the day and hopefully we can nick something."

Carlton Cole for one is eager to shine against his old club.

"There will always be that extra hunger for a player when they come up against their former club - no player wants to play their old team and do badly.

This is actually the first time I am playing Chelsea as the visiting team, so it will be weird - but I am really up for it. I expect a very tough game, it will be a lot to do with our performance though rather than theirs.

We will need to go and set up our stall and show we mean business. I think we will be able to do quite well. We will do the same at Stamford Bridge and try to upset their game plan and get the result we need."
