The Blues have been in free-scoring form lately and our tipster expects that run to continue against a Hammers side without a win in over two months
Chelsea will be looking to bounce back from their first Premier League defeat in over two months when they host West Ham on Saturday afternoon.
Frank Lampard’s men lost 2-1 at Manchester City last time out, ending a six-game winning streak in the top-flight, but will view this fixture as a good opportunity to get back on track.
The Hammers began their season well with three wins and two draws from their first six league games, but they have not won a game in any competition since beating Manchester United 2-0 on September 22.
Chelsea vs West Ham Latest Odds
bet365 make Chelsea 2/7 (1.28) favourites to continue their Champions League push with their ninth victory of the season.
West Ham are out at 8/1 (9.0) to pick up their first away win in over three months, whilst the draw is priced at 5/1 (6.0) with bet365.
Chelsea vs West Ham Team News
Tammy Abraham went off at half-time in Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Valencia on Wednesday and is doubtful for this one. Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ross Barkley are both set to miss out.
Roberto looks likely to be dropped after a disastrous run since replacing the injured Lukasz Fabianski in goal, with David Martin ready to take his place. Michail Antonio marked his return with a goal last week and should start here.
Chelsea vs West Ham Preview
Despite a strong start, West Ham are now just three points above the relegation zone and things are unlikely to get much better at Stamford Bridge, a ground they have not won at since September 2002.
The Hammers have conceded 15 goals in the seven Premier League games since their last win, and although error-prone Roberto will surely no longer be in net, they will still likely struggle to contain a Chelsea attack that averages over two strikes per game.
Their last six games have seem them plunder 14 goals and even without top scorer Abraham, they should be able to keep that run going at home to the side with the fourth-worst defence in the league.
Chelsea vs West Ham Tips and Predictions
With that in mind, the best bet for this clash on Saturday afternoon looks to come in the form of Chelsea to score over 2.5 goals at 5/6 (1.83).
