Victor Moses targets more goals for Chelsea after signing new deal

Antonio Conte is rapidly losing his battle to prove that Chelsea are not the only team that can win the title this season.

They will be keen to pick up their form, but their last outing at the London Stadium did not go as planned as they were dumped out of the EFL Cup in a 2-1 defeat against West Ham.

Chelsea's 10-point lead is likely to have been eroded by the time they take to the field at the former Olympic Stadium and Conte says they will have to produce a much sharper display than on their last visit.

After getting thumped 4-0 by Manchester City on February 1, the Hammers are 1-2-0 following last week's 1-1 draw with Watford.

From their five home matches Slaven Bilic's men have lost three, drawn one, and won only against a struggling Crystal Palace side, but away from home they've won two and drawn one of their three games played.

Victory over West Ham on Monday would bring Antonio Conte closer to his dream of debut campaign in English football with the Premier League title. They need 29 points from the Blues' remaining 12 games to be mathematically sure of lifting the trophy.

Deutsche Bank to raise $8.5B, reorganize retail in Germany
Deutsche Bank fell 1.3 percent to close at 19.14 euros in Frankfurt on Friday, and shares traded in the US continued to drop. Up to 687.5 million new shares will be issued to achieve a capital ratio of comfortably above 13 percent, the bank said.

The main concern for Chelsea is over Eden Hazard but they are confident he should be fit despite picking up a knock in training.

It looked to be going pear-shaped with Troy Deeney's penalty three minutes in and the Londoners wasted a host of chances, but Andre Ayew was on hand late on to grab a late point.

The goal helped settle Chelsea's nerves and, indeed, crush West Ham's early confidence but there were still opportunities for the Hammers in the first half - namely when Manuel Lanzini raced forward to combine with Noble but fired high.

All the other teams in the league will be a bit envious of how injury-free Chelsea's season has been.

"But the reason we have turned things around is that we didn't stop believing. It will be a really tough game". "Payet said that, even including himself, Victor is the best player that we have at West Ham".
