Chelsea have won 11 out of their last 12 home matches in the Premier League. So far this season the only match that they have lost at home was the 1-2 loss to Basel in the Champions League. Despite this they have still only kept three clean sheets at home in the Premier League, but only one team has been able to score more than one goal.
They have also scored at least two goals in all but one of their home matches in the Premier League this season and this extends all the way back into last season to get at least two in 15 out of 16 home matches.
West Ham United
The Hammers slide down the table continued with their 1-3 home loss to Newcastle United and certainly wasn’t helped by their 0-3 Capital One Cup Semi-final against Manchester City in midweek. Not only did they not get a full week to prepare for this match against Chelsea, but they had more misery heaped on them.
In five out of West Ham’s last six Premier League matches they have given up at least two goals, even further than that, they have given up three goals in four of these last six. Their away form this season has not been good either with a 2-3-6 record and giving up 14 goals and scoring nine.
With the way that these two teams have been playing it seems an easy prediction. My pick is a Chelsea win, the question becomes more about how much it will be.
