Chelsea welcome West Ham to Stamford Bridge on Sunday for a London derby in the Premier League with Thomas Tuchel’s men aiming to get back to winning ways.
The Blues were beaten 4-2 at home by another capital club, Arsenal, in midweek and will be looking for three points against a Hammers side who will surely have one eye on their Europa League semi-final against Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday night.
Chelsea vs West Ham latest odds
The Blues’ last two home league matches have both been London derbies, which they have lost, conceding four goals in the process to both Arsenal and Brentford.
West Ham are offered at 11/2 (6.50) with bet365 to make it a hat-trick of defeats for Chelsea, while the hosts are priced at 1/2 (1.50) with the draw at 16/5 (4.20).
Chelsea vs West Ham first goalscorer
Romelu Lukaku is the shortest priced player to score first at 4/1 (5.00) with Kai Havertz at 9/2 (5.50) and Mason Mount offered at 5/1 (6.00).
For the visitors, top scorer Jarrod Bowen is available at 14/1 (15.00), the same price as Said Benrahma, while Michail Antonio can be backed at 9/1 (10.00).
Chelsea vs West Ham preview
The Blues’ questionable home form is arguably one of the main factors in them slipping out of the title race with Chelsea winning just three of their last 10 league clashes at Stamford Bridge.
Tuchel’s men have kept just five clean sheets in their 15 home league matches this term and West Ham will feel they can, at the very least, get on the score sheet in west London this weekend.
David Moyes’ side have netted in 13 of their last 16 competitive fixtures and, while they may struggle to keep their minds from wandering to Thursday’s Europa League showdown, the Hammers have shown they are an excellent attacking unit this term, with 17 different players scoring in the Premier League.
Chelsea vs West Ham tips & predictions
Both teams to score seems an obvious selection and is offered at the healthy looking price of 10/11 (1.91). Combining this selection with over 2.5 goals sees the odds rise to 13/10 (2.30) which could be of interest.
