Match Preview

West Ham remain in the bottom 3 with 10 points from 15 games. Moyes hasn’t had the start he’s wanted and he’s been unable to turn the side around. They were beaten by Man City last week, but had been much better organised than in recent weeks. They looked dangerous on the counter attack but finishing from Antonio let them down. The form looks poor with 3 league defeats from the last 5. The single point they collected came against a Leicester side who should have been out of sight early on. There are key players missing for this fixture with Fonte, Carroll & Hernandez the big ones. At home this season they have won 2, drawn 1 and lost 3. They’ve played 9 on the road so far this season, so it’s about time they had a few home fixtures, and collected a few points. Those away fixtures may have West Ham placed slightly lower in the league than they should be with an even split they may be 1 or 2 points better off. At home they’ve scored just 7 goals in 6 games and have conceded 11. They’ve kept 2 clean sheets during that period and have failed to score in just 1 game. Goals are an issue for this side, and they’ve a defence that concedes goals at over 2 per game on average. Chelsea are 3rd in the table on 32 points and will be able to close the gap on at least one of the Manchester sides with a win here. They are 11 behind City and 3 behind Man United going into this fixture. They drew with a Atletico midweek and will continue their good run of form. They’ve not lost in the last 5 fixtures with 3 wins and 2 draws. Those draws came against Liverpool and Atletico and should hardly be considered blemishes on a great record. Luiz remains injured for this fixture, but the defence looks better with Moses and Kante back. They’ve played 7 away from home collected 5 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat. They’ve played more attacking football on the road and have scored 15 goals, never failing to score. The defence has been solid, often dominating games they’ve collected 3 clean sheets and have conceded just 5 goals. Morata leads the way with 9 league goals, but Hazard looks in great form and has accumulated 5 in recent weeks. West Ham will sit back and play for a point, with the counter attack their only goal. Chelsea have a good defence and an in form attack. They should get the job done here.
