Chelsea aim to push for three English Premier League victories in a row when they host London rivals West Ham United on Monday.

The Blues’ push for a UEFA Champions League place has taken a fortunate turn for the better following the side’s recent run of good form and recent results around them in the table.

In all competitions since the turn of the decade, Chelsea have won nine and drawn four out of 17 games against tomorrows opponents, who sit 11th in the league table.

Ahead of the London derby, we take a look at three individuals who have played for both sides.

Victor Moses (Chelsea 2012-present, West Ham United 2015-2016 on loan)

Victor Moses joined Chelsea from Wigan Athletic in the summer of 2012 after impressing at The Latics; and made his debut when he came off the bench against Queens Park Rangers in mid-September.

However, his early career at the club was mixed as he failed to nail down a starting place due to the likes of Eden Hazard, Juan Mata and Oscar being preferred. 

The Nigerian spent several loan spells at the likes of Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United in a bid to find more first team football.

His time at the Hammers was also mixed as he made 21 domestic appearances and scored only one. Moses returned to Chelsea at the end of the 2015/2016 season after West Ham United rejected the chance to sign him permanently. 

It would be in 2016/2017 where Moses would be remembered, when he played a pivotal role in Antonio Conte’s title winning side.

Being on the wing was his natural position before the arrival of Conte but he moved him to wing-back during the side’s 3-0 defeat away to Arsenal.

This would be a vital change as Moses turned into one of the best players in that position, creating a vital balance between defence and attack. 

Unfortunately, things did not remain as Conte was sacked at the end of his season in charge and following the arrival of Maurizio Sarri, his Chelsea career looked to be over.

Moses is currently on loan at Turkish outfit Fenerbahçe, where he has made eight appearances in the league and has scored two goals.

Demba Ba (Chelsea 2013-14, West Ham United 2011)

Demba Ba signed for West Ham United in January 2011 after he made a name for himself at German side 1899 Hoffenheim over a four-year spell.

His time with The Hammers would be short lived, however, as West Ham United were relegated to the Championship in that season which led Ba to invoke his own release clause.

After two years at Newcastle United, Ba joined Chelsea in January 2013 with big promise.

The former Senegalese international did not win any silverware during his one-and-a-half years at The Bridge but did win over supporters with vital goals.

In the 2012/2013 FA Cup quarter-final replay against Manchester United, he scored the only goal of the game as his side progressed to the semi-finals.

Ba scored a late goal against Paris Saint-Germain in the 2013/2014 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, which sent the Blues into the semi-finals. 

A goal against Liverpool in 2013/2014 was the catalyst for the club’s 2-0 victory, which ultimately ended The Reds’ hopes of a title victory.

He currently plies his trade at Turkish side İstanbul Başakşehir, where has had made four league appearances so far.

Wayne Bridge (Chelsea 2003-2009, West Ham United 2011 on loan from Manchester City)

Bridge arrived at South West London after seven years at Southampton. The move saw Graeme Le Saux move in the other direction.

He immediately made an impression and put himself in club folklore when he scored the winning goal against Arsenal in the 2003/2004 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals.

Under manager José Mourinho, his presence in the first team remained vital but an ankle injury put him on the side lines for the remainder of the 2004/05 season as Chelsea won the League Cup and the English Premier League title.

The following season proved to be even more disappointing for Bridge, as he made only two appearances until his loan move to Fulham in the January transfer window.

In the summer of 2006, club legend Ashely Cole joined from The Gunners, which put pressure on Bridge to claim a place in the first team.

Initially, he did just that after strong performances and an injury to Cole meant that Bridge played in and won both the League Cup final and the FA Cup final.

However, the gradual emergence of Cole as the first-choice left-back all but ended Bridge’s Chelsea career; and he moved to Manchester City in the 2009 January transfer window.

West Ham United signed Bridge on loan in 2011 and he made 18 appearances in all competitions, until he returned to Chelsea.

More loan spells at Sunderland and Brighton & Hove Albion followed before he joined Reading on a permanent basis in 2013. This would prove to be his last season in professional football as he announced his retirement in the summer of 2014.
