Footymad preview History of the Chelsea v West Ham United fixture

West Ham United face a trip to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge at tea-time on Saturday, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Hammers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in March 2010, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4-1 thriller, in a Premier League match.
