FRANK LAMPARD will look to reshuffle the pack when his side face West Ham in a crucial London derby on Wednesday.

The Chelsea manager scrapped his experiment at half-time against FA Cup opponents Leicester on Sunday with his side eventually running out narrow 1-0 winners.

He had initially started with talented youngster Billy Gilmour in a midfield three with N'Golo Kante and Mason Mount before making a triple substitution at half-time.

Lampard also described the opening 45 minutes as his side's "worst performance of the season."

And that will weigh heavy on his mind when he decides his team selection for the trip to the Premier League strugglers.

Kepa Arrizabalaga will keep his place in goal with Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso returning to the starting XI at full-back.

Andreas Christensen remains a doubt with injury so Antonio Rudiger and Kurt Zouma are likely to start in central defence.

In midfield, Kante will drop into his favoured defensive midfield role and could play in a midfield three with Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Sunday's matchwinner Ross Barkley with Mount dropping to the bench.

Christian Pulisic remains another doubt in attack so veterans Willian and Pedro are likely to occupy the flanks with Olivier Giroud getting the nod in attack.

Lampard will also be without Fikayo Tomori and Callum Hudson-Odoi who both occupy the treatment table.

Chelsea will consider this a must-win match as they continue their assault on a top four finish.

The Blues currently sit in fourth, one point above Leicester and two above Wolves.

The Gunners have had five players sent off - which is more than any other team in the league.

Eddie Nketiah was the club's latest star to be given his marching orders during the draw with Leicester.

He was on the pitch for just four minutes after being introduced from the bench.

And just like the official Premier League table, Liverpool are top of the Fair Play standings.

Jurgen Klopp's side have picked up just 31 yellow cards and one red during their title-winning campaign.

Leicester are in second and Southampton are in third despite receiving four dismissals.

The table, shared by talkSport, is based only on statistics from league games.

Clubs receive four points for a caution, 10 points for the denial of a goalscoring opportunity or dismissal for 2 cautions and 12 points for violent conduct, serious foul play, spitting or offensive and abusive language.

Arteta's side have racked up a shameful 346 points - which is 212 more than Liverpool.
