West Ham and Chelsea settled for a point in their Premier League kick off last weekend. This means they could be in huge desire for three points this weekend making this next game to be one of the intense and fierce fights. This will be the first home game for the hummers and the first away game for the Blues.
Contrary to Chelsea, West Ham are winless in their last 4 games which could be putting more pressure on David Moyes to claim a win when they welcome the Blues for the London derby. They had a good start last weekend but that was not good enough as they failed to defend their opening goal to make it a 1-1 tie at final blow. Despite all that West Ham defended their crest very well in 2 recent home games at London Stadium when they hosted Chelsea. Will they manage to do it again this weekend?
James Ward-Prowse will be making his debut for the host while Caicedo could be making his debut for the Blues. The Hammers has nothing to worry about their start IX as the full squad is fit for start, while their city rivals, Chelsea has long list of men in recovery room who wished to enter the pitch for this derby. However, the Blues have made some smart signing and a lot of other key players are available hence they could be confident with this road trip.
Both teams will be seeking their first win this weekend and this will mean this game might be too tight. Our analysts have picked West Ham vs Chelsea prediction to be Under 3.5 Goals and Chelsea are expected to remain unbeaten while registering most corners.
