West Ham vs Chelsea betting preview
West Ham are desperate for points to avoid relegationWest Ham have lost both of their games by the same scoreline, 2-0 against Wolves (at home) and Tottenham (away). They have failed to score in the last three matches and have only won once in the last 12 outings, a 3-1 home victory over Southampton. David Moyes' men are outside the relegation places on only goal difference. As to direct encounters, the Hammers have a decent home record against their rivals, winning three of the last five home meetings with the west London side. They also beat the Blues 1-0 at Stamford Bridge earlier this season.
With Sebastien Haller fit, the Hammers could return to the 4-4-2, with the Frenchman and Michail Antonio flanked by Jarrod Bowen and Pablo Fornals in attack. The likes of Felipe Anderson, Andriy Yarmolenko and Manuel Lanzini provide further options while Robert Snodgrass remains out as confirmed by West Ham official site. Angelo Ogbonna returns, however, he should start in place of Fabian Balbuena alongside Issa Diop. The departure of the out-of-contract Jeremy Ngakia and Pablo Zabaleta should ensure Ryan Fredericks gets a free run at right-back.
Chelsea have been flawless since football’s resumptionPrior to the suspension, Chelsea looked like their growth under the Frank Lampard had stalled. Anyway, the Blues go into the game with excellent form, winning all three of their matches since the restart - against Aston Villa (2-1 away) and Man City (2-1 at home). They also booked their spot in the FA Cup semifinals with a 1-0 win at Leicester, courtesy of a second-half strike from substitute Ross Barkley.
Tammy Abraham is likely to lead the line after making a positive impact off the bench in the win over Manchester City. Willian, Mason Mount and the on-fire Christian Pulisic will support the striker while Mateo Kovacic is favorite over Jorginho, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Ross Barkley and Billy Gilmour to partner N'Golo Kantè in the middle of the park. At the back, Andreas Christensen is expected to partner Antonio Rudiger at centre-half, with Kurt Zouma likely to provide the only competition for that role.
