Chelsea vs West Ham Prediction & Betting tips
Monday night Chelsea and West Ham United play a London derby on Stamford Bridge. Chelsea will only be satisfied with three points against the cityman, as The Blues are by no means certain about Champions League football next season.
A busy week is starting for Chelsea. It is also an important week for Chelsea, that will play no fewer than three games in the coming six days. And none of those duels should neglect The Blues. Monday evening, West Ham United is the opponent, then Chelsea travels to the Czech Republic to play in the Europa League against Slavia Prague and next Sunday, the Liverpool game is scheduled. Four days later, Slavia Prague comes to visit The Blues, so in the next week and a half they can go to Chelsea.
In the Premier League, Maurizio Sarri’s team is fifth and that would mean Europa League football at the end of the stage. They don’t want that at Chelsea. The Blues must qualify for the Champions League and that can be achieved by finishing in the top 4 of the Premier League or by winning the Europa League. Frankly, I think Chelsea is more likely to win the Europa League than The Blues leaves two teams behind in the Premier League. Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United have better material anyway than Chelsea and Arsenal can convince me a lot more in the last few weeks than the team from Sarri, which this week did well 3-0 against Brighton & Hove Albion.
West Ham United:
West Ham United remained unbeaten for three games with Chelsea in the latter, although The Hammers did not take the lead in the last thirteen away games at Stamford Bridge. The team of Manuel Pellegrini is certainly not the favorite for this match and at West Ham United they will probably be satisfied with a draw in this London derby. Certainly because West Ham United has to miss a number of basic customers, but the entire season there has been an injury wave with the Pellegrini team. If the West Ham United players hadn’t been in the rag basket so often, The Hammers would undoubtedly have been higher than the current eleventh place.
Looking purely at West Ham United’s player material, you can conclude that Pellegrini is not yet performing optimally with The Hammers. This is also largely due to all injuries. With this team, West Ham United has to compete with clubs such as Everton and Leicester City, but West Ham United is still too changeable. The last six games, for example, resulted in three wins and three defeats, and in none of those games did West Ham United win twice in a row. In fact, this season it happened only once in the Premier League that West Ham United won two or more games in a row – The Hammers won four league games in a row in November.
