West Ham vs Chelsea Premier League Preview | 24.04.2021

Publish Date: 22/04/2021

For anyone bored of reading about the doomed Super League, the good news is that there will be some football to watch this weekend. For this week’s Premier League betting tips we are focussing on West Ham vs Chelsea. This is one of the fiercest derbies in London.

Recent form analysis

This meeting between the rivals is set to be one of the most exciting in years as well. The pair go into the game level on points with Chelsea fourth and West Ham fifth. Whichever side gets the three points will move into prime position for Champions League qualification. With things seemingly so close, here is here PlayersBest – purveyors of the best Premier League betting tips in Canada – see the match turning out.

West Ham Missing Key Names

Previously a figure of ridicule, nobody thought David Moyes would have much success in charge of West Ham this season. However, by combining a rock solid defense and clinical finishing they have developed into genuine top four contenders. As enjoyable as it has been to watch, the Hammers face a tough task to keep the good times rolling this season. Declan Rice, Michail Antonio, Arthur Masuaku and Aaron Creswell are all out with injury. Craig Dawson is suspended as well after seeing red in his side’s poor 3-2 defeat to Newcastle.  Moyes will need his fringe players to step up and get the job done on Saturday.

Chelsea Must Prove They Are Super

It’s been quite the two weeks for Chelsea. The Blues have experienced elated highs, reaching the Champions League semi-finals and FA Cup final, as well as some depressing lows. This downward spiral started on Sunday night when they were announced as one of the 12 teams plotting to create a breakaway Super League. The news was met with vociferous opposition across football, none more so than from their own fans. Prior to their drab 0-0 draw with Brighton, Chelsea supporters protested outside the gates of Stamford Bridge. They even prevented the team coach entering, delaying kick off by 15 minutes. With the plans now scuppered Chelsea need to rebuild bridges, starting with a win on Saturday.

Head to Head

Earlier this season Chelsea came out 3-0 winners. Tammy Abraham – who is rumoured to be on his way out of the club – scored twice, as did Thiago Silva. This level of dominance has not always been enjoyed by the Blues, though. In more than 100 previous meetings between the pair, things are pretty even. West Ham have won 42 encounters, while Chelsea have won 51. 22 have finished level. In more recent times, things have been even as well. The last five games have been split down the middle, with each side winning two each. Extending this to the last 10 games is not particularly helpful easy as things have been similarly close.

Our Betting Tip for Today

We think Chelsea have enough to get the job done, albeit by a slim margin.

Chelsea to Get Three Points

West Ham have made a habit of upsetting the Premier League big boys this season. As much as we would love for them to repeat the trick and stick it the ‘Super League’ in the process, we cannot see it happening.

The absence of some of the Hammers’ best players puts the ball firmly in Chelsea’s court. Declan Rice helps Moyes’ boys tick in the middle, while Michail Antonio gets through a huge amount of legwork to complement his great goal scoring record. The always reliable Aaron Cresswell and Liam Dawson are also big misses.

With West Ham so weakened and Chelsea possessing a fairly clean bill of health, we cannot look past an away win for this one. To boost your odds, consider an Under 2.5 Goals bet. The Hammers’ are due a blank after outperforming their xG dramatically in recent weeks and Chelsea do not score many at the best of times.

Those looking to back our tip should head to Bet365. They are offering a Chelsea win and Under 2.5 Goals at a generous 3.52.
