Team News

Chelsea is still working to prevent missing out on European football for a second straight season. Despite their erratic play during the season, they are now in fourth place in the Premier League after 15 league games, having only three losses. They defeated Tottenham 2-0 at home on Thursday, after a thrilling comeback to force a 2-2 draw at Aston Villa.

Even though West Ham United is currently struggling with their form, they are only a few points behind their rivals. In all competitions, the Hammers have gone five games without a victory. They have only won one of their previous nine games, which has caused them to go out of both the Premier League and the Europa League. 

Probable Line-Up

Chelsea’s possible starting lineup:

Petrovic; Gilchrist, Chalobah, Badiashile, Cucurella; Caicedo, Gallagher; Madueke, Palmer, Mudryk; Jackson

West Ham United’s possible starting lineup:

Areola; Coufal, Zouma, Mavropanos, Emerson; Alvarez, Soucek; Bowen, Paqueta, Kudus; Antonio

Verdict

Tip: Over 2.5 Goals βœ…

Although Chelsea is playing well offensively, they have been having defensive problems lately. In 12 of their last 15 league games, the Blues have allowed more than 3.5 goals, and in eight of their previous nine, at least four goals have been scored.

With the fourth-highest amount of goals conceded in the league this season, West Ham has defensive problems of their own. In their last three league away games, they have lost 5-2 and 4-3, and Moyes has watched his team lose four of their previous five road games in all competitions.

Tip: Chelsea to Win βœ…

Qualifying for Europe would be a big boost for Chelsea and might just keep their coach in his job. They are in good form at present, especially at Stamford Bridge, with goals being scored left,right and centre. West Ham United have dropped to ninth in the Premier League but a win here would see them go back above Chelsea. We don’t see that happening and our main Chelsea vs West Ham prediction is a home win for Chelsea.
