West Ham United v Chelsea Match Preview & Trends

Potential 6-pointer at London Stadium

West Ham host the London derby with neighbours Chelsea on Saturday as both clubs race towards the Champions League places with no room for error as both teams are level on points. Defeat for either side could be hugely damaging for their respective top 4 hopes and any sort of dip in form at this crucial stage of the season could be catastrophic in terms of final league standings. Chelsea fans will be crossing their fingers that after a turbulent week of protesting against the European Super League, it has not affected the players too much. Their stalemate with Brighton last time out is likely the only game they will be offered any slack for given the circumstances on the night.

There have been 3 or more goals scored in each of West Ham’s last 4 games and The Hammers have scored before half-time in their last 5 home fixtures. The Irons have been shown a card in the opening 20 minutes in their last 3 matches but they have scored the opening goal of the game in their last 6 games. West Ham Utd have scored in each of their last 15 home matches (94%) and have scored 2 goals or more in each of their last 5 home matches. David Moyes’ men have scored 2 goals or more and conceded 2 goals or more in each of their last 4 matches. 

If West Ham Utd win, they would take a 3-point lead over Chelsea, it would be the end of a 6-match unbeaten streak away for Chelsea and a 16th consecutive home match with at least 1 goal scored for The Hammers. Chelsea have been undefeated in their last 6 away matches and have scored in 75% of their away fixtures.

Should Chelsea win, The Blues would take a 3-point lead over West Ham Utd, and it would be Chelsea’s 7th consecutive away match without defeat and West Ham Utd’s 6th consecutive match with at least 1 goal conceded.

Key trends

West Ham United have picked up an average of 1.94 Points Per Game in their 16 matches played 

Chelsea’s average Points Per Game in their 16 away games is 1.75.

66% of West Ham Utd’s matches had over 2.5 goals scored in total
