West Ham United vs Chelsea Prediction – Hammers facing the Blues again
Updated: 30th September 2022
West Ham United vs Chelsea – London Stadium – December 9, 2017 – 12:30 hrs – EPL Preview
West Ham United are on the brink of relegation, having being pushed to the 19th spot after their 1-2 away defeat at the Etihad last weekend. After an ignominious 0-4 home defeat to Everton at Goodison Park, the Hammers recovered to put on a brave show against League toppers, Manchester City.

The defense was stoic, marshalled by ex-City right back Pablo Zabaleta, Aaron Cresswell, Angelo Ogbonna and Declan Rice and on set-pieces, the Hammers looked particularly dangerous.
West Ham's lone goal scored by Antonio came from a set-piece. But whether all this would help David Moyes' men when they host Chelsea at the London stadium on Saturday remains to be seen.
The 2017-18 season has been the worst in the club's history having managed to muster just 10 points from their 15 games. This is the lowest ever for them at this stage of the tournament. This with the caliber of players like Javier Hernandez, Marko Arnautovic and Mauel Lanzini.
One of the club's top acquisitions, Arnautovic, is yet to get a goal this season.
Chelsea, by contrast, have had a good run of seven unbeaten games. Only one of which they have drawn. Alvaro Morata and Eden Hazard, with nine and five goals respectively are combining brilliantly.
Moreover, Antonio Conte's Blues have been very impressive in away games, having beaten Leicester City 1-2 in their fortress-like King Power stadium, a 0-4 over Stoke City and a similar margin against West Bromwich.
Chelsea are now just three points behind 2nd placed Manchester United, but even a resounding win over the Hammers on December 9 will keep them rooted to the 3rd spot, thanks to United's much superior goal-average.
The Hammers will have to be at more than their best if they are to pull off something extraordinary against their fellow visitors from London. Given their contrasting recent forms it's not hard to predict as to who the winner will be. A 1-3 in favour of Chelsea could very well be on the cards.
