Chelsea only lead the side on the table with goal difference and hope to add points to it when they travel to London Stadium today.
It’s clearly not going to be an easy derby game for Thomas Tuchel and his men considering the current form Moyes have managed to place West Ham at amid the arrival of Jesse Lingard who has manage from net 9 goals in appearances.

But sadly for Moyes, the English man is a doubt for the game tonight after picking a knock against Newcastle and was ushered out of the pitch before the end of the game as they were stunned with a 3-2 loss.
Chelsea have only Matteo Kovacic on the sideline while the rest of the squad remain fit.
Christian Pulisic is also fit for the game as he eyes for more fitness when the side will battle Real Madrid for the UCL semis on Wednesday.
Tammy Abraham has been left out of game but Tuchel claims he loves the striker’s reaction and spirit to keep working hard despite being strangely fizzled out of the front page.
Kepa secured a clean sheet against Brighton with key saves while Mendy was handed a rest and it’s likely the Spaniard will get a second start today while Mendy eye a Los Blancos show.
Thomas Tuchel seems to have cracked his front as he has been seen featuring a front three comprising mostly of Mason Mount, Pulisic and Kai Havertz.
While back up comes as Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech and Mason Mount, but hopefully Tammy Abraham substitutes Mount in this second set up while Ziyech and Werner take both flanks.
