West Ham United and Graham Potter’s Chelsea team will face off in a crucial match at the London Stadium on Saturday in the Premier League’s second round of games. This season, West Ham United have failed to live up to expectations, placing them 17th in the Premier League standings.
The visitors, who held Newcastle United to a 1-1 draw last week, will attempt to up their game in this match. On the other hand, Chelsea is currently in ninth place in the league table and has also lied so far.
In their previous match, the Blues were held to a disappointing 0-0 draw by Fulham, so they will need to be more clinical this weekend.
Under Graham Potter, Chelsea has not yet reached their full potential and is in desperate need of a boost. In his debut for the club, Joao Felix displayed glimpses of brilliance, and he will attempt to establish himself in this match.
This season, West Ham United has performed surprisingly poorly and will need a run of results to avoid relegation. Chelsea should be able to win this game because they appear to be the superior team.
Prediction: West Ham United 1-3 Chelsea
Chelsea has won 54 of the 119 games they’ve played against West Ham United, while West Ham United has won 43. Chelsea has a good record against West Ham United. In their last seven Premier League home matches against Chelsea, West Ham United have won, lost, or drawn, with their most recent victory coming by a score of 3-2.
There have been seven winning goals scored in the final five minutes of every Premier League match between Chelsea and West Ham United. Despite losing eight of their last ten Premier League London derbies, West Ham United has managed to draw with Tottenham Hotspur and defeat Fulham this season.
In the Premier League, Chelsea has won four of their last five games against West Ham United. They will try to win three in a row for the first time since 2011.
Maxwell Cornet (calf) and Kurt Zouma (thigh) of West Ham are both out with injuries, and Gianluca Scamacca, who was seen training this week, is getting closer to returning from a knee injury. Alphonse Areola has a hamstring injury and is a big question for Chelsea’s visit.
Thilo Kehrer, on the other hand, was forced off at halftime at St. James’ Park with a hamstring problem and is also a big question for Saturday. Ben Johnson might be recalled to the back three in the event that Kehrer isn’t available, but Moyes probably won’t make many changes to his starting lineup otherwise.
Said Benrahma and Jarrod Bowen could continue to support Michail Antonio in attack, while January signing Danny Ings will be vying for his first Hammers start. Paqueta is expected to join captain Declan Rice, who is in high demand.
N’Golo Kante (hamstring), Edouard Mendy (finger), Christian Pulisic (both knees), Armando Broja (both knees), Raheem Sterling (both knees), Wesley Fofana (both knee), Denis Zakaria (thigh), and Mateo Kovacic (calf) are all questionable and will be evaluated prior to kickoff for Chelsea.
Reece James and Ben Chilwell returned to the Blues, making their first appearances since 2023 in the draw with Fulham after absences due to injuries. Both fullbacks could start on Saturday.
