Chelsea are looking to bounce back to winning ways after last week’s loss at home to Arsenal. Precisely on 21 April, the Blues bowed with a score quite far 2-4 from the Gunners.
Now, Thomas Tuchel’s men will welcome another London derby this week, which is against West Ham. However, the opposite side is also experiencing performance turbulence.
West Ham have only picked up 1 win in their last 4 matches in the EPL. Last week, The Hammers were only able to pick 1 point when they became a team at the bottom of Burnley.
Chelsea vs West Ham Prediction
Previously, Chelsea looked confident in the top 4 of the English Premier League this season. But now the situation is different. The Blues deserve to be wary of Arsenal who are only 5 points away from him.

Tuchel has a heavy burden to maintain his position. Moreover, he will continue this week’s home game with the provision of a 2-4 defeat in the previous match, at the same place.
If accumulated, Cesar Azpilicueta and colleagues have always lost in 2 consecutive home matches. Regarding the minor note, Tuchel sure can improve it.
He considered, the defeat that his team experienced in 2 consecutive matches, purely because of the superior quality of the team that must be accepted.
“It’s hard to separate this from mistakes, whether it’s not enough or just really hard to keep these chances. It could be that creeping feeling that you don’t want to have at home games. You want to feel capable of coming back,” Tuchel said, quoted by the club’s official website.
“Now the job is to convince the players to keep going, and the fans to keep pushing and hang in there. We have a lot to build and rely on. Don’t be superstitious now. Don’t believe in things that don’t exist. This is another challenge at the top.”
However, West Ham still deserves to be reckoned with. David Moyes’ team have been impressive this season. They managed to occupy the 7th position in the standings, competing with Man Utd, Tottenham and Arsenal in the race for the top 4 position.
One of The Hammers’ mainstay strategies is the counter attack. Declan Rice and colleagues are not very aggressive in attack, but the counter-attack is quite dangerous. In total there have been 6 goals born from this scheme.
In addition, David Moyes’ troops also have a fairly strong mentality. Even though they were left behind, not infrequently they managed to turn things around. Soccerway recorded 24 goals they managed to create in the span of 60-90 minutes of the second half.

In the opposite camp, David Moyes had problems in his defense. There are 3 central defenders who have been ruled out due to injury. Among them are Issa Diop, Kurt Zouma, and Angelo Ogbonna.
Therefore, Moyes is likely to withdraw central midfielder Declan Rice. He will be paired with Craig Dawson in the position of 2 defender.
Chelsea (4-2-2-2): Mendy; James, Chalobah, Silva, Alonso; Jorginho, Kante; Mount, Loftus-Cheek; Havertz, Werner | Coach: Thomas Tuchel
West Ham United (4-5-1): Fabianski; Coufal, Dawson, Rice, Cresswell; Bowen, Fornals, Soucek, Lanzini, Benrahma; Antonio | Coach: David Moyes
