With the rebuild now complete, Chelsea travels to play West Ham in the Premier League, trying to return to winning ways. Our sportsbook offers the best markets and bonuses in the English top-flight league.
Let’s check the latest Premier league news, stats, injury reports, and Premier league lines for West Ham vs Chelsea. We’ve got plenty of Premier league picks for you to consider.
West Ham: Fighting for Survival
Despite being fully packed with quality players, West Ham is struggling to find the right pace. It recently put an end to a very disappointing run of form with seven games without a win, including six defeats in the process.
The 2-0 win against Everton, followed by a well-deserved draw against Newcastle on Saturday, saw West Ham climb the ladder and put one point between it and the danger zone. West Ham will still be without many key players for this clash, with Kurt Zouma, Gianluca Scamacca, and Maxwell Cornet all injured.
David Moyes will be keen for his side to build on this momentum as it bids to move further clear of the relegation zone, but we can’t trust West Ham enough to include it in our soccer picks and parlays.
West Ham has lost just one of its past four Premier League games to ease the pressure on Moyes. Meanwhile, the Scottish manager has given the first indication that West Ham might be prepared to sell superstar Declan Rice in the summer, with several superpowers ready to sign him, but until then, West Ham must win points and stay in the top-flight league. Let’s not forget that West Ham is still involved in the Conference League and is one of the best teams qualified in the knockout stages and could go all the way and lift the trophy.
Chelsea: Rebuild Complete
In January, the Blues spent more than $350m, signing eight new players, including a British record $120m deal for Enzo Fernandez. In two windows under Todd Boehly’s ownership, Chelsea has spent around $750m on new players, and many have questioned the American billionaire’s approach to the market.
Graham Potter and his staff were involved in every deal from start to finish, while Chelsea insisted there is no such thing as a Boehly signing. The Blues owners see their recent business as a long-term investment, driven by months of detailed planning, but the fans need positive results.
Graham Potter’s time at Chelsea has gotten off to a rocky start as the Premier League club is transitioning under new ownership and management. Chelsea is sitting ninth in the Premier League standings after 21 games and is at risk of missing out on Champions League qualification for next season. So if you’re betting online, you should avoid backing Chelsea this season.
West Ham vs Chelsea Head-to-Head
The Hammers will hope to further their form at home, where they ended a run of four successive defeats by beating fellow strugglers Everton 2-0 last month. Moyes won’t be happy to see Chelsea visiting the London Stadium, as he’s suffered more defeats against West Ham than any other team except Manchester City, with a staggering 26 defeats in 45 fixtures.
The Blues failed to find the back of the net in the last two EPL games. They have won just three away games this season, scoring just nine goals. West Ham managed to pick up 13 points in 10 home games this term, with 12 goals allowed in the process.
