West Ham United have had a difficult season so far, and it isn’t going to get any easier as they prepare for a match against Chelsea at home. The Hammers are fourth in the Premier League with 24 points, while Chelsea are first with 33.
West Ham have gone three games without a win in the Premier League, which has slowed their progress. They may end the week in fifth place after their 1-1 draw with Brighton on Wednesday, as Arsenal face Manchester United on Thursday.
They haven’t kept a clean sheet in five consecutive league games, but they’ve only failed to score in one of them, meaning both teams have scored in four of their previous five games. Furthermore, they have gone undefeated in their previous three league games at home, with three of the last five games producing more than two goals.
Chelsea have gone 12 games without losing in all competitions and will enter this match on a high note. They are coming off a 2-1 victory over Watford, in which manager Thomas Tuchel tried to rotate his line-up, with Hakim Ziyech scoring the game’s winning goal. Mason Mount had an assist and a goal in the game, and he should be kept for the game against West Ham.
Chelsea are favourites, but this isn’t a game they’ve had much luck with recently. In the last four matches, both teams had two victories. Chelsea have kept two clean sheets in their previous five league games, with both teams scoring in the other three. Six of the Blues’ previous ten league games have seen them score two or more goals.
Chelsea are on a roll, but their defence has shown signs of fragility at times. This is one area where this West Ham United team will be put to the test.
West Ham haven’t been at their best defensively, but they’ll be glad to host this game, as they have a three-game unbeaten home record in the league. This will be a close contest, but West Ham United will emerge victorious.
KICKOFF TIME: This match between Chelsea and West Ham United will go down on Saturday at 1:30PM Nigerian time.
