Why you should back Chelsea
Chelsea have dominated this series at home. The Blues have lost only one of the last 16 home matches against West Ham, a 1-0 defeat in November 2019. In the last matchup, on April 24 at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea won 1-0.
In addition, the Blues take on a West Ham side that has struggled to score this season. Through five Premier League matches, West Ham have scored just two goals and have been shutout three times. The scoring output is tied for the lowest in the EPL.
Why you should back West Ham
The Hammers face a Chelsea side that has been conceding goals at an uncharacteristically high rate. Through five games this season the Blues have given up eight goals. Just six teams in the EPL have given up more.
In addition, the Hammers have the personnel to score at a high rate. Jarrod Bowen, Declan Rice and new signee Gianluca Scamacca give West Ham a potentially strong attack though each player is still looking for his first goal in domestic play this season.
