Chelsea -303 / West Ham United +650 / Draw +450
Chelsea are set to play West Ham United at Stamford Bridge for a match in the English Premier League.
Chelsea are in a massive fight with Arsenal and Manchester United for a spot in the top 4. As it currently stands, Chelsea are even with Arsenal in points for fourth spot. That being said, the Blues have played an extra game so they must keep winning if they wish to maintain a fight for the Champions League. In their last match, Chelsea beat Brighton at home. It was a dominant performance by the Blues as 69% of the ball and had 17 shots. Eden Hazard and Olivier Giroud both scored for Chelsea as the team won 3-0. Chelsea have won both of their matches this month so they will be confident as they head into this fixture.
On the other side of the coin, West Ham lost their previous match as they were beaten at home by Everton. It was a disappointing loss for the Hammers as they only managed 3 shots in the entire match. West Ham have only managed 6 points in their last 4 games and it seems like the Hammers are in poor form. West Ham are safe from relegation and the team has not much to play. As a result, it will be hard for the players to get motivated for an effective dead-rubber.
West Ham and Chelsea met earlier in the season at London Stadium in a match that ended as a 0-0 draw.
As far as this match is concerned, I am going to pick Chelsea to win. The Blues are the stronger team and they look in much better form when compared with West Ham United. The Blues are fighting for a spot in the top 4 and I see that fight continuing as Chelsea should get all 3 points from this fixture.
