Angelo Ogbonna has Tweeted “let’s rock” before West Ham take on Chelsea in the EFL Cup on Wednesday evening.
The two London rivals have been drawn together in the competition with the contest set to be held in the London Stadium.
The two teams already met in the season opener at Stamford Bridge, which saw Chelsea run out 2-1 victors in the Monday evening clash.
Now set to meet again, star centre-back Ogbonna has aired his anticipation for the game on his personal Twitter account.
The clash will see Ogbonna line-up against his former Italy and Juventus boss Antonio Conte, who sold him to West Ham in the summer of 2015.
The 28-year-old has featured in nine clashes for Slaven Bilic’s team this season as the Hammers look to maintain their recent good form following a slow start.
The east London outfit are unbeaten in their last three fixtures, with two victories and a draw and it is expected that they will play a strong side against their London rivals.
The competition could also provide an opportunity for West Ham to qualify for next season’s Europa League, given the strength of the current top sides of the Premier League and the Hammers position in the table.
