[Teams] Chelsea vs West Ham: Confirmed Line-Ups

When asked on the potential returns for Courtois and Pedro, Conte replied: "Yeah, could be".

The Belgian goalkeeper has not figured for the Blues since their 3-0 Champions League defeat to Barcelona on March 14.

Moyes confirmed Manuel Lanzini, who missed the game with the Saints, may feature.

However, striker Javier Hernandez is on the bench after recovering from illness.

West Ham are still not safe from relegation with realistically at least another win needed to secure their Premier League status.

West Ham team: Hart, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Rice, Noble, Zabaleta, Kouyate, Masuaku, Arnautovic, Joao Mario, Fernandes.

But the fact remains, Conte has presided over just three wins in Chelsea's last 10 Premier League games.

Hart, dropped earlier this season by Hammers boss David Moyes, provided a timely reminder of his talent with a superb save to deny Willian, who had been put clean through by Hazard.

With six games left, Chelsea can still mathematically reach the Champions League, although that would require a collapse from both Liverpool (who have five games remaining) and Tottenham (who have six games to play). The popular former England and Chelsea midfielder was only 61 when he suffered a cardiac arrest at the end of March which he could not recover from.

However, Hernandez, on as a substitute, struck his ninth career goal against the Blues to earn a point for the Hammers.

"Sorry to Chelsea fans", Hernandez said with a laugh.

The Brazilian has been Chelsea's best player this season and he deserves more than the Europa League next term.

"They tell me last season he had very few injuries, but he picked up one at the end of the season with his hamstring and he's never really recovered from that. They created a lot but we stood strong".
