The Premier League returns later this week as we take on West Ham and look to continue our unbeaten run in the division.

Things have started pretty well for the Blues this season with Marco Silva quickly getting his new players to adapt to how he wants to work.

A patchwork side could well be fielded this weekend, though, with the Liverpool Echo suggesting up to nine players could be missing against the Hammers.

Seamus Coleman is the latest to pick up an injury then thanks to the international break and he joins a number of others that are not fully fit.

Phil Jagielka, Andre Gomes, Idrissa Gana Gueye, James McCarthy, Michael Keane, Yerry Mina and Theo Walcott have all got issues of their own and at least some will be missing against the London-based side.

Some are pushing to at least play, meanwhile, whilst RicharlisonĀ serves the last game of his ban.
