Confirmed West Ham line-up v Chelsea: Bilic makes one change
By Harvey Byrne
Slaven Bilic has made one change to his West Ham side which takes on Chelsea in the Premier League on Monday evening.
The 48-year-old manager has decided to bring Andy Carroll back into his starting eleven.
This has resulted in Michail Antonio missing out following the red card he received in the 1-1 draw against Watford last week.
West Ham announced their line-up via their official Twitter account prior to the 8.00pm kick off.
The Big Man @AndyTCarroll is back.

The Hammers earned a victory last time they met Chelsea in October in the EFL Cup.

Goals from Cheikhou Kouyate and Edimilson Fernandes made sure that Gary Cahill’s stoppage time goal was meaningless.
However, it was a different outcome in the league with the two meeting at Stamford Bridge on the opening day.
A penalty from Eden Hazard opened the scoring before defender James Collins equalised with Diego Costa scoring the all-important winner with little time left in the match.
But, West Ham have certainly improved since their poor start to the campaign and as they sit in 11th place in the Premier League table they will be looking to keep all three points at home in the London derby.
In other West Ham news, the Hammers are planning talks with 24-year-old at the end of the season.
