Chelsea vs West Ham Betting Tips
Chelsea lost to Manchester City in the previous Premier League round. The final score was 2:1, which shows that the Blues are capable of playing well and scoring against any team in the league. Speaking of scoring, this is the team that has scored in every single Premier League game in the previous 12 rounds. Actually, the only game in which Chelsea failed to score this season was the one in the opening round of the Premier League, in which they got hammered by Manchester United.
Their next opponent, West Ham, is a team that can’t be too proud of their attacking performances. Actually, the Hammers have been pretty disappointing in all departments, especially in the last few weeks. Their poor run has brought them very close to the relegation zone. Ahead of the 14th round, they have only three points more than Norwich who are in the danger area. And because West Ham have been playing so badly, their manager is now one of the biggest candidates for sacking.
West Ham need to improve their form as soon as possible, but that won’t be easy to do this weekend. It’s not just because Chelsea are playing very well. It’s also because West Ham have very bad experiences when playing in Chelsea’s part of London. At the Stamford Bridge, West Ham are without a win since 2002. That’s one year before Russian tycoon bought Chelsea and turn them into a heavyweight Premier League side.
It’s needless to say that a big majority of games these two played at the Stamford Bridge were home wins. Now that we’re on the subject of Chelsea’s home matches, this team hasn’t been too brilliant at home this season. Actually, the Blues have won more points on the road than on their turf. Still, this doesn’t mean they won’t improve their stats. And the chances are that they will add three points this weekend.
