Winston Reid

West Ham United will be without defender Winston Reid for the visit of Chelsea on Saturday (24 October). The New Zealand international missed last week's 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace with a hip problem and has not recovered in time with James Collins likely to come into replace him.

Victor Moses meanwhile is ineligible to play against his parent club. "We are without Victor Moses because he is a Chelsea player, that is a big blow but we knew that," manager Slaven Bilic said. "Winston Reid is out, he isn't going to make it for this game. It is nothing major but he will not play. "All the others are back, Enner Valencia is back – he was on the bench against Palace. He could start, we will see."

The Hammers are flying high in the Premier League in fourth place having already claimed scalps against Arsenal and Liverpool this season. But despite their impressive start to the season, Bilic's side have won just one league game on their own turf.

Chelsea however will arrive with their own poor record, having won just one of their last five games in all competitions and will travel to east London off the back of a trip to Kiev on Tuesday night.

Chelsea's rotten form has seen manager Jose Mourinho come under mounting pressure but his West Ham counterpart Bilic believes he is still coming up against the best manager in the league on Saturday.

"They are the champions and he is the best manager around. I am looking forward to it," Bilic said. "I know Mourinho's team are always hungry and no one expected them to be where they are now. Sometimes that happens in football. "I have watched all their games. If there was something major wrong he would be the first to change it. I see them finishing in top four."
