Slaven Bilic’s team has impressive season, the best in many years. The Hammers played 29 games, taking wins in 13, drawing 10 and losing 6 of them with 45-33 goal difference. Such record allowed the team to gain 49 points and climb up to 5th place in the league. West Ham are battling for the Champions League spot as the Hammers are only two points behind Manchester City (currently 4th). West Ham are quite consistent on the road and always entertain their fans. They’ve taken 6 wins in 16 away matches, tied 5 and lost four games. We should note that the recent match of the Hammers was quite a thriller. West Ham were down 0-2 at Everton but managed to score 3 goals in 12 minutes in the second half of the clash and took impressive three points.
Chelsea have been more successful in the head-to-heads of these teams. However, the Hammers won reversed match this year against struggling Chelsea 2-1. West Ham are also in solid shape as the team are on 7-game unbeaten run. We can expect the visitors to score at least once during their voyage to Stamford Bridge.
Prediction for the match: West Ham to score.
