West Ham face Chelsea later this afternoon in the latest London derby of the season.

Both sides go into the game on the back of wins and the likes of Eden Hazard and Marko Arnautovic will want to show their quality throughout the match.

The latter, of course, has arguably been the Hammers’ best player so far this season and looks at the top of his game but it’s not always been like that.

He struggled at the start of his West Ham career and, as quoted by FourFourTwo he has suggested that he let former manager Slaven Bilic down during his time there.

He said:

“It would be harsh to say he [Bilic] was sacked because of me. Maybe there were a couple of occasions when I let him down.

“I have a lot of respect for Slaven. I love him as a human being and as a coach. I let him down a little bit and I think he thought that as well.”

Arnautovic really seems to have come of age in recent months and speaking so candidly underlines that.

He’s leading the charge for the Hammers at the moment and will be looking to add to his goal tally against Chelsea as the East Londoners aim to build on their win at Everton.
