What Trueform says for Chelsea vs West Ham
West Ham returned to peak form when crushing Southampton last weekend and can be competitive at Chelsea if in the same mood.
The Blues look set to miss out on a place in the top four following their loss to Tottenham and it may be difficult for Antonio Conte to lift spirits.
Our Trueform ratings suggest that 14/5 for the Hammers to avoid defeat is a value pick for our Chelsea vs West Ham betting predictions.
A Look At Chelsea’s Betting Odds
Chelsea suffered a first home defeat against Spurs since 1990 when beaten 3-1 at Stamford Bridge, despite going ahead through Alvaro Morata.
That result left the Blues eight points behind their London rivals and 10 adrift of Liverpool in the race to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
Defender Cesar Azpilicueta told the club website: “It’s a hard kick for us because our target was to get closer to them and after the game we are even further away.
“But it’s a massive target for us, so we have to make sure we fight until the end to try to get that spot.”
However, Chelsea have now lost five of their last seven Premier League matches and Conte’s future looks bleak.
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
West Ham went into the international break in turmoil after conceding 11 goals in losses to Liverpool, Swansea and Burnley, but a three-week rest clearly allowed them to regroup.
Joao Mario’s first goal for the club and then a Marko Arnautovic double saw United wrap up a 3-0 triumph over Southampton before half-time.
That victory lifted them up to 14th and came as a huge relief following the crowd trouble at their last home game against the Clarets.
Mario, a January loan signing from Inter Milan, told West Ham TV: “All the team wanted to change the situation from the last match here.”
David Moyes added: “The players showed how they felt about past events, they were pent up and ready to go.”
If the Hammers can maintain that momentum, 5/4 for both teams to score at Stamford Bridge is worth adding to our Chelsea vs West Ham betting tips.
That bet would have paid off in five of the last six meetings between these teams!
CHELSEA 1-3 Tottenham – Alvaro Morata
WEST HAM 3-0 Southampton – Joao Mario, Marko Arnautovic (2)
Head-to-head: West Ham 1-0 Chelsea, West Ham 1-2 Chelsea, West Ham 2-1 Chelsea, Chelsea 2-1 West Ham, Chelsea 2-2 West Ham, West Ham 2-1 Chelsea
