Chelsea will have a tough game on their hands this weekend as West Ham come to visit. This is going to be a tough game for both sides and a game which both teams will want to win. At this point in the season, only West Ham have something to play for but nevertheless it is natural for a team like Chelsea to want to win at home so I think we are in for a treat when it comes to this game.

Chelsea are now officially only playing in the Premier League and they don’t have much they can achieve from that either. This team has gone from one of the best teams in Europe to a very average English side. I expected a lot from this side at the start of the year and they have honestly let me down so I don’t trust them at the moment. There is a lot of talent in this squad but I think that they might not play as well as some people expect from them.

West Ham on the other hand have been red hot this season and I think that they will do well against a Chelsea side who are struggling for form at the moment. This side has shown a lot this season and Champions League spots are still a possibility for them so I expect a good showing from the Hammers in this London derby.

As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a great price on West Ham so I am going to take it. This is a coin flip game in my opinion so the price we are getting in amazing so I shall take it as my pick. Also if you want to be a little safer, taking the double chance with a draw is also a good option. 

Pick:
West Ham
