Kerry Dixon and Paul Canoville previewed Chelsea's clash at the London Stadium with West Ham on Monday night in a live Facebook chat with Goal's Nizaar Kinsella.

Chelsea are seven points clear of Tottenham and the chasing pack as they go into the local derby and will be able to stretch their lead to 10 points with a win over Slaven Bilic's side.

Dixon is third on the list of Chelsea's all-time leading scorers, while Canoville was the west London club's first black player.

"Everyone is together at the moment, on and off the field and that is the difference," Dixon said at the launch of his new film, the Legend Lives at the Soho Sanctum Hotel on Friday night. "The two real stars are Costa and Hazard. They are the two real stars.

"Hazard can unlock a defence and make it happen. No disrespect to any other player, they are all playing their part. There are many unsung heroes in that team. It takes not just 11 but around 16 [players]."

Canoville added: "Everyone is fighting. Under Conte it has been unbelievable. He is enjoying it, he looks like a young guy.

"This is great for ex-players. I am loving that Chelsea are winning and they have to be favourites for the league, but we can't say that it is over until it is over."
