Demel: We can beat Chelsea

West Ham defender Guy Demel feels Chelsea are there for the taking ahead of the sides' clash at Upton Park on Saturday afternoon.

• Delaney: Questions, not answers

While Sam Allardyce's side lost narrowly against Manchester United on Wednesday night, and thereby suffered successive defeats for the first time this season, Chelsea themselves suffered a second successive 0-0 draw, for the first time since 2004, and Demel is looking to take advantage of their recent poor form in front of goal.

Indeed, the defender believes the fight the Hammers showed in the game could well be enough against a team who were clearly 'nervous' in their match against Fulham.

"If we play like that against Chelsea and are more clever in front of goal, we have a chance to win the game," he told the club's official website. "Chelsea are a similar team to Manchester United, but they were worried last night. You couldn't hear their fans. At home this weekend I think we will push forward more. We don't need to hide because we have an opportunity to win the game."

West Ham are currently 10th in the Premier League table and will be keen to pounce as Rafael Benitez eases into life at Stamford Bridge.
