West Ham v Chelsea Prediction - Preview

West Ham United F.C.

West Ham United are seated 4th at the Premier League table. They had to settle for a point in their last game, as Brighton and Hove Albion held them to a 1-1 draw. Tomas Soucek scored very early as he headed in Pablo Fornals corner in the 5th minute. Efforts by Fornals, Jarrod Bowen and Declan Rice failed to double the lead, and the Hammers paid for it as Neal Maupay levelled one minute before time for the Seagulls. Manager David Moyes admitted his men were in poor form, but also rued the disallowed offside goal by MIchaeil Antonio in the first half. Could they have better luck in the upcoming London derby with the current league frontrunners?

  • West Ham have drawn the same number of games as Chelsea.
  • Michail Antonio leads in goals among players of these two teams with 6 made.

Chelsea F.C.

Chelsea have remained in pole position after matchday 14, holding a slim lead over Manchester City and Liverpool. The 2021 Club of the Year escaped a near scare from bottom-dwellers Watford, winning 1-2 at Vicarage Road. Mason Mount found the bottom corner in the 29th minute to open the scoring, but Emmanuel Dennis was able to level for the Hornets just before the break. With 18 minutes remaining, Hakim Ziyech struck in Mount’s pass for another emphatic victory by the Blues. Manager Thomas Tuchel gave credit to Watford for a strong performance, and thought his side had. a bit of luck. They will be needing stronger form if they plan to dominate a strong West Ham side this weekend at London Stadium.

  • Chelsea have scored double the average of West Ham per game in the EPL this season.
  • Before winning their last two EPL games over West Ham, the Blues lost their two previous league games to the Hammers.

West Ham v Chelsea Prediction - Final Thoughts

While West Ham have struggled in some games lately, there’s no denying that they are a strong contender for a European football slot for next season. Their perseverance helped in handing Liverpool its first loss of the season, and being this match’s host increases their chances against the reigning club champions of Europe. However, Tuchel and company would be wiser to learn from the near-scare of Watford, and will be itching to prove why they are still possibly the best side in the world. In this tight London derby contest, we see the Blues prevailing over the Hammers in the end. Let’s take a look at our predictions.
