West Ham vs Chelsea: Squawka Says

Scoreline prediction: West Ham 1-2 Chelsea

West Ham vs Chelsea: Predictions

In what can only be described as a proverbial six pointer for a top four Premier League finish, West Ham and Chelsea meet in an all-London affair this weekend, with the two clubs in fifth and fourth place respectively, having played the exact same number of games (32) and with the exact same points (55).

The transformative work that David Moyes has undertaken at West Ham has been nothing short of miraculous, clawing the club away from the relegation mire one season and launching a European assault the next; the turnaround has been as quick as it has been mightily impressive for the sagacious Scot.

When Frank Lampard’s Chelsea visited the London Stadium last season they were put to the sword 3-2, which pretty much summed up the often chaotic and tumultuous short reign of the club’s record goalscorer, but this current incarnation under Thomas Tuchel is a far cry from that previous version.

Under the German’s careful watch, Chelsea have been dogged, hard to break down and organised, three impressive traits that should stand them in good stead against a side that simply cannot buy a clean sheet, with West Ham’s backline proving exceptionally porous these past few games.

West Ham vs Chelsea: Match Stats

Without Declan Rice to marshal the midfield and retain possession, or Michail Antonio to lead the line and protect the ball, Chelsea should be expected to dominate this game, and one area they will look to exploit is on the flanks. The Blues typically play with high-pressing wing-backs which, in turn, leads to a huge chunk of corners, an area they have excelled in this season. In fact, only Manchester City (220) and Liverpool (205) have had more corners than Chelsea (197) in the Premier League this season.

West Ham vs Chelsea: Head to Head

21 Dec 2020 – Chelsea 3-0 West Ham – Premier League

01 Jul 2020 – West Ham 3-2 Chelsea – Premier League

30 Nov 2019 – Chelsea 0-1 West Ham – Premier League

08 Apr 2019 – Chelsea 2-0 West Ham – Premier League

23 Sep 2018 – West Ham 0-0 Chelsea – Premier League

West Ham looked good value to nick a point earlier this season but were just undone by a few lapses in concentration at Stamford Bridge. The 3-0 scoreline flattered Lampard’s men in the end, but a wins a win and West Ham went home with zilch on the board and deflated having suffered a heavy reversal.
