Premier League: West Ham vs Chelsea

West Ham vs Chelsea Betting Tip and Predictions. In the one of the most interesting matches in Premier League this Saturday, in the city derby, West Ham host Chelsea.

West Ham started this season very good and after 9 rounds they are standing at the 4th position, with 4 points less than leader Manchester City. It’s hard to believe that they will have enough strengths to win the title, but if they continue with good performance they can reach some place which leads in some European competition. Home team have already show that they know how to play against big clubs, when they beat Manchester City and Arsenal. They are unbeaten in their last 6 Premier League matches and they hope that can make positive result against Chelsea. Their attack is pretty good, the second best in league, but it seem that they have some problems in defence. West Ham conceded at least one goal in their last 5 matches in all competitions.

Chelsea play very poor this season. They were one of the main candidates to win the title, but after 9 rounds they are standing at the middle of the table with only 11 points. Jose Mourinho‘s team have many problems in defence. They conceded 17 goals in 9 matches and that’s too much for team which pretend to win the title. In the last 5 matches in all competitions, Chelsea have managed to win only once and it was the win against Aston Villa, one of the worst teams in Premier League. This is very important for visitors. They have very good team and deserve better position, but it will be very hard for them to win this game if they don’t change something in their team.

West Ham vs Chelsea injuries and suspensions

Home team can’t count on Victor Moses, who is on loan from Chelsea and can’t play against his club, while Winston Reid is still out due to injury.
Chelsea still miss Branislav Ivanovic, so he will be replaced by Zouma. Pedro also have some problems with an injury, so he will be probably start from the bench.

West Ham vs Chelsea possible lineups

West Ham: Adrian; Jenkinson, Collins, Tomkins, Cresswell; Kouyate, Noble; Valencia, Lanzini, Payet; Sakho.
Chelsea: Begovic; Zouma, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Ramires, Matic; Willian, Fabregas, Hazard; Costa.

West Ham vs Chelsea Prediction

Despite the fact that visitors are some favorites to win this game it will be very hard for them to take all three points. West Ham will be fully motivated to continue with good performance and take three points against another big club. I expect an interesting and open match between West Ham vs Chelsea and at least three goals.

West Ham vs Chelsea Betting Tip: over 2.5 goals @ 1.73 (Bet365)
