Chelsea vs West Ham match tip

Chelsea to win and BTTS @ 7/4 with Matchbook

Chelsea’s unbeaten run came to an end with their heavy defeat to Arsenal, but they’ll be hoping to keep their rebuild of Fortress Stamford Bridge going. Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Tottenham in midweek means they are unbeaten in their past five home league games, and they’ve won seven of their last 10. But in that run, Chelsea have only managed four clean sheets. West Ham have scored at least once in each of their last three games.

West Ham are looking to do the league double over Chelsea but it’s the Blues that are favourites for this one, especially given their recent home form.
