Chelsea look to bounce back after disappointing week

Chelsea fell to their second defeat in a row on Tuesday as Wolves came from behind to clinch an injury time winner, but the Blues will be hoping to get back on track on Monday.

Frank Lampard’s side have only won one of their last four games, but at home they haven’t lost since mid-September and they have scored 14 goals in their five home games since.

Hammers show signs of decline

West Ham will be a tough test though. The Hammers sit just a point behind their London rivals and have only lost one of their last six Premier League games. That was an unlucky defeat at home to Manchester United, but they have shown signs of a downturn recently.

Their draw with Crystal Palace was a very flat performance and West Ham are showing signs of tiredness. They come into this with the excellent Jarrod Bowen and Aaron Cresswell as potential injury doubts too, which certainly doesn’t help their chances.

Goals at both ends expected

What we can expect is some goals from both teams, however. Chelsea have conceded in each of their last four games in all competitions but have scored 26 league goals this term, second only to Liverpool.

West Ham, meanwhile, have scored in each of their last 12 Premier League matches but have conceded in each of their last four, so backing both teams to score looks excellent value.

We do expect the hosts to get the win though. They have averaged 2.33 goals per home game this season and West Ham have come unstuck against Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal this season, so a 2-1 correct score prediction appeals.

Backing Olivier Giroud to get on the scoresheet is worth considering as well. The veteran Frenchman has forced his way into the reckoning at Chelsea with a sensational return, scoring seven goals in his last seven competitive appearances for the Blues.

Chelsea injuries and team news

Hakim Ziyech is nearing a return for Chelsea and could make the bench on Monday, with Callum Hudson-Odoi also recovering.

Christian Pulisic and Timo Werner are likely to start out wide though, supporting Olivier Giroud as he spearheads the Blues attack.

West Ham injuries and team news

Arthur Masuaku is the only confirmed absentee for West Ham, but a number of key players are fitness doubts.

Aaron Cresswell, Fabian Balbuena, Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio are all doubts, with Robert Snodgrass likely to replace Bowen on the right and Haller expected to start up front again.
