Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea eased to a 3-0 home win over Brighton in midweek which leaves them with back to back wins. Last weekend they had to fight back from 1-0 down at Cardiff to collect three points. Those are the only two wins that they have taken in their last four league games though (D1 L1). Chelsea have put together a pretty strong home record this season in the top flight they are at W10 D5 L1 at the Bridge. They are currently unbeaten in their last six league fixtures at home, winning four of those. Chelsea have looked fragile at the back for most of the season, but their defensive record at home is good.

The Blues have only conceded an average of 0.6 goals per home game this season, earning a clean sheet in 50% of their fixtures. Less than half of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. The Blues have produced an average of exactly two goals per home game this season, and eight of their ten home successes have been by at least a two-goal margin. The Blues have been leading at half time in eight home games and have opened the scoring in all but five home games. Only Man City, Liverpool and Arsenal have better league home records than Chelsea this season in the EPL.

West Ham News and Form

The Hammers were running in some good home form in the league, which makes their collapse against Everton last weekend puzzling. The Hammers were really poor only coming up with three shots in the fixture. Out on their travels, this season West Ham have only put four wins in the bag (D3 L8) so they haven’t had the best of times away from the London Stadium. Actually, the Irons have lost five of their last six away games (D1) so they have to be vulnerable for this London derby fixture. West Ham have scored in just two of their last six on their travels.

West Ham are averaging under a goal per game scored this season on the road, and only 40% of their away fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals. They have conceded at an average of 1.5 goals per road game. The Irons have picked up just the two away clean sheets so far. Of their eight losses away from home this season, six of them have been by a margin of at least two goals. The Hammers haven’t picked up a clean sheet in any of their last seven on the road. Of the goals which they have conceded on their travels, 61% of them have been after the half time break.
