West Ham v Chelsea Premier League Preview, 9th December 12.30pm
The Hammers put up a pretty good scrap in a 2-1 defeat against Manchester City at the Etihad last weekend when many had expected them to be pounded. They go in search of their first win under David Moyes as they face up to Chelsea in a London derby on the weekend. The Blues have been moving along nicely in good winning form and they will be kicking off as favourites to get another three points under their belt in this one. Chelsea are 9/20 to take the win, with the draw at 10/3 and West Ham at 6/1.
West Ham News and Form
The Hammers have yet to get a win on the board under David Moyes but they put up a pretty commendable fight at Manchester City last weekend before falling 2-1 after Angelo Ogbonna had put the visitors ahead. So far at home this season the Irons have gone W2 D1 L3 this season but they have failed to win any of their last three, picking up just the one point in that sequence. They haven’t been particularly potent in front of goal this season and of concern is that they have conceded at least two goals in six of their last seven league games. Over 2.5 goals at BetVictor returns a price of 4/5. Two of their three home losses this season in the league have been by a three goal margin. They haven’t been leading at half time in any of their six home fixtures this season in the top flight and there is a price of 5/4 on a half time drawing turning up in this one. Will they be able to get themselves that elusive win and snap their eight match winless streak in the top flight? The two wins that they have produced on home soil this season were both with a clean sheet over Huddersfield and Swansea. Given the way that they played last weekend it may be worth considering both teams to score with BetVictor at 19/20 for the game though because Chelsea have power in attack.
Chelsea News and Form
In the BetVictor correct score market a Chelsea 2-1, which was the result in both of last season’s league meetings is a decent 7/1 option while a 1-0 victory for the visiting Blues is the shortest priced option at 13/2. The Blues have been picking up nice momentum with only two points dropped in their last seven league games played now. They perhaps haven’t been as prolific in front of goal as they would have liked (they are the lowest scorers of the current top five in the league heading into the weekend) but they have four clean sheets in their last six league games, conceding just the two goals in hat sequence. Chelsea to win to nil at BetVictor collects a price of 11/8 as they look to take advantage of the top two, Manchester United and Man City, playing each other this weekend. Chelsea’s away form this season reads W5 D1 L1 with the only loss being suffered out on the road at Crystal Palace. The Blues have conceded just the one goal in their last there road games. Alvaro Morata is the 5/6 outright anytime goalscorer favourite for the match.
West Ham v Chelsea Head to Head
Chelsea are bossing the Premier League head to head form against West Ham having gone W7 D1 L1 in their last nine top flight games against the Irons. Both teams have scored in each of the last three home games that West Ham have played against Chelsea. The Blues have won their last three league visits to West Ham.
Who will win – West Ham v Chelsea Predictions
Chelsea should be able to produce a decent enough performance to go and claim a win in this one. They may have to dig in because the Hammers really battled well against Man City so won’t give the Blues an easy game. But Chelsea have enough quality players in form to sneak a win, but maybe only by a one goal margin.
