West Ham vs Chelsea Premier League 2021 Match Preview, Injuries/Suspension, Match Facts, Team News, Prediction and Where to Watch.

West Ham United have dropped seven points behind the Premier League’s top three after failing to take their chances against Brighton & Hove Albion on Wednesday night (1-1).

However, the midweek draw ended a two-match losing streak in the league, and every point is crucial in the race for fourth, which appears poised to last the entire season.

The ‘Hammers’ should be pleased to be playing in familiar surroundings, since they haven’t lost a league game here since October (W2, D1), so they should be satisfied.

They’ve had a mixed record in home London derbies over the last year (W2, D3, L2).

They’ve scored first in six of their seven home Premier League matches this season (W3, D2, L2).And could add to their recent defeat of Liverpool by springing another surprise.

Chelsea, on the other hand, won both Premier League head-to-heads last season ‘to nil’ and haven’t lost a competitive match since September (W9, D3 – 90-minute outcomes), despite not being at their best against Watford (W 2-1) in midweek.

Despite this, they’ve scored in both halves in three of their past four games and three of their last five head-to-heads.

This rivalry stretches back to 1923, when the two sides played to a 0-0 tie.And recent head-to-heads hosted by West Ham have been equally tight.

Chelsea hasn’t won by more than one goal in any of their last eight visits (Chelsea: W3, D1, L4).And by winning here last season, the ‘Blues’ done so for the first time since March 2017.So they won’t take anything for granted.

Players to Watch

West Ham haven’t lost in any of Tomá Souek’s last nine goalscoring appearances, which is a promising sign (W6, D3).

Meanwhile, all three of Romelu Lukaku’s goalscoring appearances for Chelsea this season have come in the first half.

Hot Stat

In four of their last five home league games. West Ham has conceded after the 80th minute, dropping four points as a result.
