West Ham vs Chelsea – Premier League Betting Tips

West Ham welcomes the league leaders Chelsea to their home stadium and will look to stop them in their stride to the Premier League crown. 

West Ham has been in formidable form, beating Liverpool this season, and making life hard for Man City even though they lost 2-1 and beating teams on their level and below their rank in the EPL this season.  

Chelsea on its own has been in immense form, only losing to Liverpool this season. They are top of their Champions League group, which is slated to restart next year. They look like a serious contender for the title in the EPL, but with Liverpool and Man City breathing down on their neck, it won’t be an easy ride for them. 

Will West Ham cause significant damage to Chelsea’s ambition? We don’t know yet, but here are our tips for this match. 

West Ham Form and Team News

West Ham, by their standards, are in a cruising form, winning teams above them and losing to teams stronger than them (e.g., Man City). How David Moyes set up his squad makes them bully opposition players and are dangerous on set pieces. 

On the team news, they have Cresswell Aaron and Ogbonna Angelo out for this clash due to injuries. However, since this is a busy period in the EPL, Moyes might want to manage his fit and in-form squad by shuffling them a bit, as was seen before their match against Man City. 

Chelsea Form and Team News

Chelsea has had mixed results in their recent past EPL matches. Though they are yet to lose, they have had draws and wins, and to be honest, they were in a strong position to win those games that ended as a draw. 

This being a busy period should put Chelsea into a real test as they have struggled with injuries and consistent results. However, this does not mean that they are likely to lose to West Ham, but they have been looking dull in attack recently, which might be a concern. 

Fo the team news, they have some first-team players out injured or doubt for this fixture, and they are Kovacic Mateo, Timo Werner, Reece James, Kante, Ben Chilwell, and Jorginho.

Our Tipsters Angle

This match is exciting and hard to predict, as you can tell by now. When checking their H2H, it equally proves this point right because in the last 5 games, Chelsea has won 3 and West Ham has won 2. 

Also, Chelsea has won about 10 away games in the Premier League this season, and that is a serious consideration for this match even though West Ham is in top form at the moment. 

However, below we provided our thoughts/predictions on this match.

Tip 1: Chelsea Over 4.5 Corners  

Chelsea’s setup and pattern of play in games like this have made it possible for them to rack up corners in the league. Due to high pressing and attacking from wingback positions, Chelsea racks up more than 7 corners in their games, and we think it is a likely outcome for this match. 

West Ham, on their part, concedes 4+ corners against other teams, and this match against Chelsea should see them defend deep, thereby conceding corners. 

At the Casumo Sportsbook, Chelsea to have Over 4.5 corners is available at odds of 1.36.

Tip 2: Under 3.5 Goals 

This is not an easy call, but we think there will be no more than 3 goals in this match. West Ham is very hard to break down, and even though Chelsea has been in cruising form away from home, it is unlikely that this match would produce goals.

Also, in their previous 10 matches, there have been under 3.5 goals in 90% of them, and we think this would be another low-scoring match between the two sides.    

At Casumo sportsbook, Under 3.5 goals is placed at 1.29 odds, and we think it is a good value for this match. 


This match is undoubtedly a cracker. West Ham looks like they aim to pull off another Leicester City EPL title-winning miracle. Still, unfortunately, Chelsea seems to have seriously set their eyes on the EPL trophy too, and this clash of heavyweights will be interesting to see how it ends.
