Chelsea host West Ham United in a Premier League London derby on Saturday afternoon.The Blues suffered a second successive defeat on the road for the first time since December 2020 as Southampton roared back to win 2-1 on Tuesday night. David Moyes’ Hammers managed to overturn a deficit of their own in midweek, coming from behind to collect a point at home to Tottenham.Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming renewal of this capital rivalry.
Chelsea vs West Ham Head-to-head
- Chelsea will come into this on the back of three wins in the last four games against the Hammers.
- Chelsea won 28, drew 12, and lost 12 of the previous 52 home matches against West Ham.
- The home teams have scored at least three goals in three of the last five head to head outings.
Both Teams To Score – Yes
The matches between Chelsea and West Ham usually have a lot of goals and we expect something similar in this fixture mostly because of the current forms of both teams. West Ham finally started showing some results after the incredible transfer window and even dominated Tottenham in the mid-week match. Chelsea, in turn, have terrible issues in defense even with all the centre-backs that the team bought in recent years. Their attack scores goals and this is why we have no doubts about them scoring.
Match Result – Draw
This is completely going against the typical expectations but there are a lot of reasons why we expect a draw. Chelsea had two home games since the start – a 2:2 draw against Tottenham and a 2:1 win over Leicester with 10 players on the pitch. But let’s face it – Leicester are the weakest team in the league right now. West Ham had the worst possible start but the team plays differently since qualifying for the ECL. In the previous game, they had all the chances to beat Tottenham but reached a draw. We believe that they will make it very difficult for Chelsea in this match.
