Willian says Chelsea have no margin for error if the reigning champions are to maintain their Premier League title challenge at West Ham today

Willian says Chelsea have no margin for error if the reigning champions are to maintain their Premier League title challenge at West Ham today. Chelsea boss Conte will want his team to close the eleven-point gap to EPL leaders Manchester City. Today's trip to the London Stadium marks the opening game in this weekend's round of fixtures and a Chelsea victory would lay down a marker before City meet second-placed United in the Manchester derby the following day.

With City showing no sign of faltering, Chelsea midfielder Willian is well aware the pressure is on Conte's team to avoid any slip-ups. "We have to win," the Brazilian said. "We are playing away. Of course, it's going to be a difficult game. But I think we can get the three points."
