Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in four of West Ham’s last five Premier League games.
  • Chelsea have conceded eight goals in their last two home league matches.
  • Chelsea have won nine of their last 12 in all competitions.
  • Kai Havertz has scored five goals in his last six top-flight outings.

Chelsea look to consolidate top four

Chelsea conceded four goals at home for the second Premier League match in a row in midweek and that heavy 4-2 loss against Arsenal has put a bit of pressure on the Blues, who are now just five points inside the top four.

Thomas Tuchel’s side do have a game in hand on Spurs and Arsenal below them, though, and even with their recent disappointments they have managed to win nine of their last 12 games in all competitions.

Hammers keep one eye on midweek

West Ham have their own battle to contend with as they vie for European qualification but, unlike their hosts, they still have another method of qualification available to them.

The Hammers face Eintracht Frankfurt in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final on Thursday and, with the potential for a trophy and a pathway into the Champions League on offer, you would not blame David Moyes for keeping one eye on that fixture.

Havertz to guide Blues to victory

Chelsea have shipped  eight goals in two home league games, though, so West Ham should at least be able to trouble them defensively and with both teams scoring in four of their last five league games a both teams to score bet appeals.

West Ham have lost their last three away games in the league and have just one first-choice centre back available to them. Combined with the upcoming Europa League tie I fancy Chelsea to edge this and a 2-1 correct score prediction is my choice.

I’m also backing Kai Havertz in the anytime goalscorer market. The young German attacker has scored five goals in his last six Premier League appearances and can punish the Hammers here.

Chelsea predicted lineup: Mendy; James, Chalobah, Silva, Alonso; Jorginho, Kante; Mount, Loftus-Cheek; Werner, Havertz

West Ham predicted lineup: Fabianski; Coufal, Dawson, Rice, Cresswell; Bowen, Fornals, Soucek, Lanzini, Benrahma; Antonio

  • Chelsea’s last three Premier League matches have had three goals or more
  • Both teams to score has been a winning bet in eight of Chelsea’s last ten Premier League home games
