What Trueform says for Chelsea vs West Ham
Chelsea seem back on track to challenge for a top-four place in the Premier League after two quick wins and are also expected to see off West Ham at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues were more than a touch fortunate to prevail 2-1 at Cardiff but then looked far more convincing in a 3-0 triumph over Brighton here.
We’re snapping up 7/5 for another home win to nil for our opening Chelsea vs West Ham prediction.
A Look At Chelsea’s Betting Odds
Chelsea have been a bit flat at times this season but put in a very positive performance to brush aside the Seagulls on Wednesday night.
England starlet Callum Hudson-Odoi celebrated his full Premier League debut by laying on Olivier Giroud’s opening goal.
Eden Hazard and Ruben Loftus-Cheek then fired in eye-catching second-half strikes as the Blues stepped up to fifth in the table, one point off Tottenham in third.
Maurizio Sarri was full of praise for Hudson-Odoi and Loftus-Cheek, stating: “In the future, they can become top players; for this team, the future could be good.”
We’re hoping Sarri’s side can kick on with another dominant display here, so 91/100 they win by more than one clear goal stands out from the Chelsea vs West Ham odds.
Last Chelsea line-up: Kepa, Christensen, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Emerson, Jorginho, Kante, Loftus-Cheek, Hazard, Giroud, Hudson-Odoi.
Chelsea will assess Loftus-Cheek’s long-standing back problem and defender Marcos Alonso must prove his fitness after a hamstring issue.
Pedro is expected to shake off a knock, while Ethan Ampadu has a back complaint.
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
West Ham’s form has been up and down all season but there were worrying signs that they may be ready to shut up shop in a deflating 2-0 loss to Everton.
Goals from Kurt Zouma and Bernard condemned the Hammers to a first home defeat since the turn of the year.
Aaron Cresswell told the club website: “It was a bad day at the office. Everton fully deserved the win.
“We weren’t good enough throughout the whole game, particularly in the first half. They went 2-0 up and that was too hard to come back from.
“It was one of those days and we need to put it behind us now.”
Cresswell insisted West Ham are still chasing seventh place, but they follow up this game with a trip to Manchester United and must also visit Tottenham before the end of the month.
We fear a drop-off in enthusiasm from here on, especially if going behind in tough fixtures.
Let’s finish off our Chelsea vs West Ham betting tips by taking 29/4 for a 2-0 home win.
Last West Ham line-up: Fabianski, Cresswell, Zabaleta, Ogbonna, Diop, Lanzini, Snodgrass, Obiang, Rice, Arnautovic, Perez.
Felipe Anderson, Samir Nasri and Ryan Fredericks are all available to return for West Ham, but Andy Carroll, Jack Wilshere, Andriy Yarmolenko, Carlos Sanchez and Winston Reid remain sidelined.
