Former Hammer Victor Moses enjoyed his season-long stay at the Boleyn Ground - but hopes to condemn his former club to defeat when he returns with Chelsea next week.
The 26-year-old winger - who opened the 2015/16 campaign in the Chelsea side beaten 1-0 by Arsenal in the Community Shield - went on to make 26 appearances for West Ham in the club's final season in Upton Park, before returning to his parent club last May.
And Moses, who has been a key element of Chelsea's good form this season is hoping to feature on Monday night when he seeks to help his side gain revenge for the EFL Cup defeat last October when goals from Cheikhou Kouyate and Edi Fernandes helped West Ham to a 2-1 win.
"I had a great time at West Ham last season," he told Chelsea's website. "Itís a nice memory, but Iím a Chelsea player now and I canít wait to go to the London Stadium where hopefully we'll get three points."
Moses, who hit the back of the net twice for West Ham last season - in the 2-1 win at Manchester City and the first of five at Blackburn in the FA Cup - has been playing in a new role at right wing back for much of the current campaign under new Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.
And whilst admitting he was happy at West Ham, the Nigerian is finally thriving at Stamford Bridge as he approaches the fifth anniversary of his £10m move from Wigan. Already he has doubled last season's goal tally, with four to his name - including the winner in a 2-1 defeat of Tottenham in November.
"Iíve always wanted to play for this club, itís one of the best clubs in the world at the moment and Iím enjoying every single minute," he added. "I just want to keep on working hard and helping my team-mates out."
