Christensen gets booked for a foul on Antonio as their legs entangle on the left flan.
Coufal is booked for the Hammers as he delays a counter-attack.
Bowen with a chance to seal it but he blazes over the bar.
GOAL FOR WEST HAM! Masuaku has put West Ham in front. Wow. Mendy was anticipating a cross and it seems like the Hammers sub misjudged his cross and it caught the Chelsea keeper out at the near post.
Benrahma comes on for Lanzini.
Loftus-Cheek feeds Hudson-Odoi on the left-hand side of the penalty area but the winger fails to find a team-mate in the box.
Antonio outmuscles Hudson-Odoi then drives a ball across the six-yard box which Bowen stretches ever sinew to reach at the far post but though he makes contact, he cannot drive it at goal.
Alonso comes off for Pulisic, so Chelsea going more attacking too now.
He wanted to carry on but Zouma has now come off for Fornals. You have to think they will go to a back four now the Hammers.
Rudiger trues to play in Lukaku but he cannot get the ball under control. Worryingly for Wesy Ham Zouma has seemingly gone down with a hamstring injury.
Ziyech is subbed off for Hudson-Odoi.
Zouma has had a good game, another crucial block from James pass aimed at Lukaku.
Mount puts a dangerous cross in along the six-yard bix but West Ham clear. You feel there will be more goals.
GOAL FOR WEST HAM! Bowen smashes home from the edge of the box with his left foot. He leaves Mendy with no chance flailing low to his right.
A corner from Ziyech causes havoc in the six-yard box for West Ham and Antonio almost tried to get out the way of it before deflecting wide of his own goal.
Havertz has been replaced by Lukaku.
West Ham get the game restarted...
It started slowly but exploded into an intriguing game in the last third of the half. Havertz seems groggy. They will check him over the interval.
Zouma slides in to deny Havertz an opportunity to slide the ball out of play. Both players are now down receiving treatement.
Mausaki comes on for the injured Johnson for West Ham. His inability to get back on the left was what enabled Mount to have so much space for the goal.
GOAL FOR CHELSEA! Wonderful volley from Mount. Ziyech played a diogonal ball to the right hand side of the penalty area and from 12 yards out he squeezed a side-foot into the near post.
Mendy getting mocked by Hammers fans now as the next backpass he panics with and puts straight out for a throw in.
GOAL FOR WEST HAM! Lanzini puts away the spot kick sending Mendy the wrong way.
PENALTY! Mendy brings down Bowen. An awful backpass from Jorginho began the issue and Bowen did not dive in but waited for Mendy to try to beat him and then got in the way and was brought down.
Mount shoots from 25 yards but it is easily saved.
Alonso puts a ball into the six-yard box aiming for Havertz but Zouma gets in the way with a sliding challenge.
Loftus-Cheek has a chance to shoot from the edge of the box but Rice half blocks his effort and Fabianski saves easily.
So close to being level, Coufal fires from the edge of the box and it had Mendy beaten but Thiago Silva having just scored read the scenario well enough to be back on the line to clear.
GOAL FOR CHELSEA! Thiago Silva heads home Mount's corner. Fabianski got a touch on the ball but could only push the ball against the post and in. Antonio will be angry he didn't jusmp with the Brazilian centre back.
A little of a minor set-to with Jorginho going down under a challenge from Jorginho, then looking to take down the England man with his body thereafter - picking up a booking.
The corner falls drops to Dawson six yards out but he shoots straight at the keeper.
Rice puts in a dangerous free kick which Loftus-Cheek heads behind.
All Chelsea with the ball and all in the West Ham half but very little penetration.
Mount drifts behind the defence as he is wont to do and cuts for Havertz who side-foots into the side-netting. It would have been ruled out for offside anyway.
James drifts to the left flank then curs in and shoots a decent effort from 25 yards but Fabianski gets down to save it to his right.
Soucek arrives to meet a left-wing cross from Antonio but heads wide of the target.
Thiago Silva gives the ball away uncharacteristically and Bowen shoots at goal from 20 yards but wide of the target.
A lot of possession for Chelsea in the early moments but nothing threatening so far.
Chelsea get us underway...
The bubbles are floating everywhere...we're about ready to go.
Chelsea are 3/4 to win, West Ham are 4/1 and the draw around 3/1.
You wonder if Moyes was minded to (almost) mirror Chelsea's formation after seeing the success Watford had doing this on Wednesday.
There are two changes for West Ham who look like they will go into the game with three at the back. Diop will play alongside Dawson and Zouma, while Lanzini will play behind Antonio. Benhrahma and Fornals drop out.
A stronger looking line-up for Chelsea than the one that struggled at Watford in midweek. Thiago Silva is at centre back with Chalobah dropping out, James returns at right wing-back for Azpilicueta, Jorginho replaces Saul and Ziyech starts in place of Pulisic.
This is the side Thomas Tuchel is sending out at the London Stadium...
This is how the Hammers are lining up...
