West Ham United vs Chelsea – Team News, Tactical Analysis

West Ham United vs Chelsea Preview, Predictions: Let’s have a look at team and injury news coming out from both teams and also how this game will affect their standings in the English Premier League:

West Ham United:

There is plenty going within West Ham. CB Doneil Henry and Jose Fonte would miss this game due to injuries. It is still questionable if Winston Reid would play this game. Last weekend, Michail Antonio and Cheikhou Kouyate picked up small injuries. We are expecting Chicharito Hernandez to return in this game as he has returned to training sessions. Within two weeks or three, English Premier League will reach halfway. Out of 15 games played, West Ham has on two only. They are in second last position with 10 points. They can go one place up with a victory.


Chelsea has fewer things to deal with ahead of their away game against West Ham United in the English Premier League. The only casualty they have is the injured CB played David Luiz. Rest squad is in great shape and ready for the action in the upcoming encounter. Chelsea’s run in Premier League is far better compared to their opponents. They are currently in the 3rd position with 32 points. They have managed to win ten out of 15 games played. To maintain their position and maintain the pace towards number one position, they need a big victory.

  • These teams have a huge history of 94 matches
  • West Ham won 35 games, Chelsea won 40, where rest 19 were draws

West Ham United vs Chelsea – Predictions

English Premier League has not reached even halfway. West Ham United still has chances of improving their bad run this season; However, it is still questionable if they would able to do that in this game as they are against dominating Chelsea. Still, looking their past competition, we are hoping great fight from both sides.
