West Ham vs Chelsea: Top Free Betting Tips
West Ham vs Chelsea will be an incredible match and we have high expectations. Here are our predictions.
Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes
Both sides had the same result in the opening round – a 1-1 draw. There is a possibility that we will see the same in this match. As a start, we definitely think that both sides will score a goal here. This has been the case in the majority of h2h games in recent years. Chelsea have definitely improved in attack but their defense is far from what it should be with the players they have.
Match Result Prediction: Draw
We think that there is a good chance for a draw in this match for multiple reasons. West Ham really played well at home around the end of the previous season and they got wins over some of the best teams. Chelsea, in turn, were abysmal on the road last season and we do not know if they have improved enough yet. It is a matter of time for them to get better but right now, we do not think that they will beat West Ham.
Correct Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw
Both sides do not concede a lot of goals and their main problem is that they cannot score too many either. This is why we see the 1-1 draw as the most possible scoreline in this match. When we compare the West Ham vs Chelsea line ups, we definitely think that the visitors have a huge advantage when it comes to the squad strength but they have a lot of injured key players.
West Ham vs Chelsea Team Previews
West Ham Preview
West Ham had a tough season last year and barely made it above the relegation zone. It was all due to a strong run at home in the final months of the campaign. Unfortunately, the team failed on the transfer market and has not yet finalized their main targets for the new season, even though it already started. They will have problems in the early weeks, no doubt.
Chelsea had an unbelievable transfer window once again but this time, they managed to sell almost an entire squad worth of players. This will make it easier for them to find balance and chemistry with the new manager and all the young players. We think that Chelsea will be significantly better in the new campaign and we have high expectations.
