Premier League – Match-day 6: Chelsea v West Ham United
This Saturday sees Chelsea go head to head with The Hammers at Stamford Bridge – Kick-off 3:00pm GMT.
This clash sees fourteenth play tenth, as struggling The Hammers visit Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea.
Chelsea go into this meeting with seven points secured
Also, Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea have lost two of their last three meetings this season. With seven points (2W, 2L and 1D), they are established in tenth position in the League having won two games, drawn one game, and lost two matches.
When Chelsea host The Hammers, they will do so on the back of one win and one draw on their own ground.
Chelsea will have 10 points if they manage to secure a victory.
Chelsea are likely to be missing five of their key players when they start Saturday’s game, due to injury and illness.
West Ham United arrive at this match, having secured four points so far this season
The Hammers’s recent run of poor form will be worrying for manager David Moyes, with a 1-1 draw to Tottenham Hotspur in their last fixture, which followed a defeat to Aston Villa. The Irons will be fired up for this next match, but mustn’t throw caution to the wind.
Also, league success is all about winning football matches, any way you can, so three losses in five fixtures would not make this a successful season for The Hammers. With a fourteenth position in the league and 1 wins, 3 losses and 1 draws, they currently have four points in the League having won one game, drawn one game, and lost three games.
Playing away from home, The Hammers have won one game and lost one game.
West Ham United will have 7 points so far this season, should they secure a win.
David Moyes will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of four of his The Hammers players.
