West Ham vs Chelsea 9 December 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

West Ham have not been at the top of their game but they had a decent outing against Manchester City and will look to build on that as they take on Chelsea at home. This is a game where Chelsea will want to win easily while West Ham will want to make life hard for their London rivals.

West Ham have not been playing well and it seems like this side lacks fight. The players don’t seem to be interested and the fans are getting angry at the team. This is not a good situation and it is something that needs to change fast if the Hammers want to avoid relegation this season. It is important to note that West Ham have a lot of injuries but I don’t think that is a good enough excuse considering the talent which is still available at the club.

Chelsea have been playing some really good football and after getting a draw against Atletico Madrid midweek in the UEFA Champions League, they will hope to build on that and get a win. This side is very talented and they seem to be playing well at the moment so it is hard to see them not having a good outing at the Hammer’s home ground.

Chelsea should win this game easily but I don’t think we are getting a good enough price to make this bet. The best bet for this game is the over 2.5 goals. West Ham have a habit of conceding many goals quickly and I think that might happen again this weekend against Chelsea.
