Chelsea vs West Ham
The Chelsea vs West Ham prediction will be 1-1 as they both struggle in the League since the start of the January. As the Premier League match between Chelsea and West ham is about to held on Tomorrow, Former Celtic forward Chris Sutton has Chelsea vs West ham prediction a 1-1 draw for Chelsea’s upcoming Premier League clash against West Ham United on Saturday (11 January). The Englishman believes the points will be shared equally between the two London outfits.
Chelsea have kept clean sheets in their past three games but they also don’t score many – they have only found the net once in that time. West Ham are hardly free-scoring either, so I doubt the goals will be flying in at Saturday lunchtime.”
Like Oli is saying, Aguerd has made a big difference for them at the back, after they had lots of problems in defence when he was injured at the start of the season. Every time I write West Ham off, they get something from the game so the bad news for Hammers fans is that I am going for the points to be shared this time.”
Chelsea have had a poor 2022/23 Premier League campaign so far. The Blues find themselves ninth in the league table in one of their worst seasons since the 2015/16 campaign, when they finished tenth. Graham Potter’s side has undergone a massive transition this term, with changes in ownership, management, and two enormous transfer windows that saw spending in excess of £600 million.
Chelsea vs West Ham Prediction In Premier League
Meanwhile, West Ham United has been struggling in the English top tier this term. The Hammers are on the verge of entering the relegation zone, 17th in the league table with only one point between themselves and 18th-placed Everton.
The Englishman, who transitioned from player to sporting director last month after retiring from West Ham United last season, told the Evening Standard:
“It’s just the world we live in. We’re West Ham and these players want to go out and play Champions League football – and do you blame them? Dec is no different. Dec will always be hailed at West Ham as a fantastic player and such a top, top person.”
“But I don’t think anyone begrudges him wanting to go and win things. We just hope he’ll keep performing like he has been over the last month or so. Wherever Declan ends up, or however much someone pays for him, whether it’s here or anywhere else, he’s worth every penny. He’s said openly he loves playing at West Ham, but he has got ambitions as a player to go and play in the Champions League and win trophies.”
This comes as exciting news for Chelsea, who have long since been linked with the English midfielder. Rice played for the west London outfit’s youth set-up, and multiple reports have suggested a return to the club, with the England international a close friend of Chelsea star Mason Mount.
Chelsea’s Struggle for Victory
Chelsea couldn’t bring up their 150th victory in a London derby against Fulham last time out so will now set their sights on trying to become the first side in the capital to hit that mark with a trip across the city to West Ham United on Saturday.
Back-to-back goalless draws might not have been exactly what Graham Potter wanted, even if it has solved some defensive frailties. Their last 12 games in the Premier League have seen them win just two games (D5, L5) during which time they’ve netted only seven goals. That’s as many as their scored in the first three league games of his Stamford Bridge reign, all of which ended in victory.
The sight of the claret and blue shirts should bring some joy to his heart though, as he’s unbeaten in all seven games he’s managed against West Ham, although he has tasted victory in just two of those.
For quite a while, Chelsea proved a bit of an incurable curse for David Moyes. But with three victories in his last four home games with the Hammers against the Blues, that’s as many victories as he had in the previous 13 against them in all competitions during his time as Everton, Sunderland and Manchester United boss.
The trouble is West Ham have lost eight of their last 10 Premier League London derbies, which is as many defeats as in their previous 20 such games combined. And although they won this exact fixture 3-2 last season, they’ve alternated between winning (four) and not winning (D1 L2) their last seven Premier League home games against Chelsea.
