Betting Tips for the game
West Ham were able to register a crucial 3-1 win over Everton in the recent Premier League game. This victory was crucial for Manuel Pellegrini considering that it came after four consecutive defeats.
Chelsea had a very comfortable 4-1 success over Cardiff City during the weekend. This was followed by a Europa League match in which the team picked up a 1-0 win over PAOK.
The recent match between the two clubs produced a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge back in April. Chelsea’s last trip to the London Stadium saw them lose 1-0. Our betting tips and predictions expect a stalemate.

Chelsea are at odds of 1.57 to win the match. Even though West Ham have picked up three wins in the last four home games against Chelsea, they are not our pick at 6.00. Chelsea have had a difficult trip to Greece which has been made worse by the return flight being delayed by a day. Maurizio Sarri’s preparations for the West Ham game have taken a major hit. This will have a major impact and West Ham’s confidence is also up after registering a crucial victory over Everton in the last league match. Our preview would go with a draw.

West Ham win odds: 6.00
Chelsea win odds: 1.57
Correct Score odds
The blues have been a dominant attacking force under Maurizio Sarri, but they have also been with their defensive problems. West Ham come into the game without a number of key attacking players but summer signings like Felipe Anderson have been good for the team. Marko Arnautovic’s availability for the game holds the key for West Ham. Our correct score prediction expects a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The two clubs will be trying to get the better of each other with highflying tackles and intense pressing. This may be a game where Chelsea players get very little time on the ball. Even skilled names like Eden Hazard may find it difficult to create space in a game where cleverness off the ball will be matched by the physicality. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Olivier Giroud has been able to take a lot of pressure off Eden Hazard by opening up space for the Belgian international. The 31-year-old striker will help Hazard add to the five-goal tally achieved in the league. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Eden Hazard.
