West Ham United vs Chelsea | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Sunday in the English Premier League opens up with one of the London derbies. Chelsea, the leaders in the standing, is looking to extend their perfect streak, away from home against West Ham, who won his first match last week. We frequently saw some very efficient and interesting battles between the two, and nothing less is expected this time.
The Hammers defeated Everton away from home, 1:3, and they started moving up in the standings right now. This is going to be the chance for them to win their first game at London stadium this season. The guests are superb, and just a few have predicted this kind of development for them, especially after they lost in the Community Shield to Man City. The latest victim in their rampage was Cardiff City, 4:1.
West Ham United
At last, we saw something from West Ham’s offensive arsenal. Yarmolenko and Arnautovic underachieved since the season started, but against the Toffees, this duo showed just a glimpse of their true possibilities. If they started playing like that right from the first match of the campaign, the Hammers would have been placed much higher, and not near the bottom of the table. Contests they present are very efficient. From the last six, five finished with over 2.5 goals, and not only that, but both teams haven’t scored just once in the previous five. So, get ready for some good action this Sunday.
The Blues are really looking excellent, and their first place is fully deserved. We haven’t seen a single flaw in their performances so far, and what is even more encouraging for their fans is that it appears that they are not playing with 100%. The duo which came from Napoli, coach Sarri and Jorignho really improved Chelsea’s game in every aspect, and that especially refers to the midfielder, who made it possible for Eden Hazard to play more creative and relieved him from organization duties at the center of the field. The Blues have 6 wins in a row, and when looking their efficiency, things are impressive there also. Only one match in the EPL they played hasn’t seen over 2.5 goals and both sides to net, and Chelsea scored at least two in all of them. Sarri’s philosophy of attacking constantly hasn’t changed a bit.
Latest Team News
Arnautovic left the pitch against Everton after a knock, but he will be ready for the upcoming derby. Chicharito is also expected to be in the protocol. Winston Reid, Manuel Lanzini and Jack Wilshire are not going to play this Sunday. Mateo Kovacic, Fabregas, Loftus-Cheek and Emerson are all expected to play.

West Ham United vs Chelsea | Top Betting Tip: Chelsea (1-3)
This should be one of the more efficient matches in this round. Both tradition and the current form of the teams are suggesting that we should bet on a high number of goals. Also, the mentality of both sides is offensive, and they want to attack no matter the result. The Hammers were scoring even in those games they lost, while on the other hand, Chelsea always allowed at least one ball in their net. So, over 2.5 combined with both teams to score should be your choice when it comes to betting on goals. As for the winner of the event, we have no trouble to decide it right away. Chelsea looks good, which is why we believe that they would win in this London derby. Final word, West Ham vs Chelsea 1:3.
