Besides, "Liverpool" and "Tottenham" are already chasing them, lagging just two points behind, as well as "Everton" do. Although the "Toffees" are six points behind, they still have one more game to play.

In terms of playing in their home arena, "West Ham" are one of the best teams in the current championship of England. At the moment, the "Hammers" are the second-best team in the Premier League. They won 9 of the 16 home matches. Moreover, David Moyes' wards have won six victories in eight previous home meetings.

Upcoming Predictions for Football

Chelsea F.C.

The fight against "West Ham" will be the fifth for Thomas Tuchel's guys during the last two weeks. The London club also successfully played in the FA Cup semi-final confrontation with "Manchester City", which "Chelsea" beat 1:0 to become the finalist of the tournament. In the Premier League during this period, the "Pensioners" beat "Crystal Palace" (4:1) and have ended in a draw the match with "Brighton" this week (0:0). 

Tomas Tuchel's team can also fight for third place, from which it is now only one point behind; however, the "Blues" played a match more. On the road, the London club is now fifth in the Premier League. "Chelsea" have won eight out of the 16 away matches, lost four matches and drew the same number of times.

There are practically no personnel losses for Thomas Tuchel’s team. Due to injury, only midfielder Mateo Kovačić will not play in the match.
