Chelsea vs West Ham: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview
Chelsea will be looking for a swift return to winning ways when they host West Ham in the Premier League on Monday at 8:00 PM (UK time).
Chelsea vs West Ham: Predictions
After losing their last two games 1-0 and 2-1 to Everton and Wolves, respectively, the Blues have fallen away slightly in the Premier League title race. Frank Lampard’s men are seventh in the table but, given the tight nature of the English top-flight this season, remain just six points adrift of leaders Liverpool and only three behind Spurs in second.
The Blues play host to a West Ham side enjoying a strong start to the 2020/21 season, losing just two of their last 11 Premier League games to recover brilliantly from two consecutive defeats to open the campaign.
With a relatively low budget and the constant threat of losing his best players, David Moyes is doing a brilliant job with West Ham, akin to his time at Everton, leading the Hammers to eighth and just three points adrift of the Champions League places thus far.
West Ham did the double over Chelsea last season, but can they inflict more pain upon the Blues at Stamford Bridge this time?
