Chelsea vs West Ham
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 30 November 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Stamford Bridge (London).
Chelsea dropped points for the first time in six weeks and will be keen on returning to winning ways at the earliest. With h2h history at Stamford Bridge also indicating a clear upper hand for the hosts, West Ham have little or no reason to have their hopes up this weekend.

Chelsea vs West Ham Prediction
Chelsea had their six-match winning streak in the Premier League brought to an abrupt halt after Manchester City edged past them with a 2-1 scorecard last week. The hosts certainly gave their foes a run for their money in that matchup though and almost salvaged a point during the closing stages of the game.
Nevertheless, the Blues have been tasting nothing but success in their last three first division games here. That too with a clean sheet intact.
On the other hand, West Ham are yet to hit the ground running this season. Unlike Chelsea, the visitors have not picked up a win in any of their past seven games in the first division, garnering no more than two measly points from a possible twenty-one.
It is also worth mentioning that the guests have admitted defeat in six of their last ten visits to Stamford Bridge. Their last win at this venue came well over a decade ago as well.
Moreover, West Ham have just one win on the road so far. Taking into account that they have also conceded a goal at the least, in the opening forty-five minutes, in each of their last four outings, count on Chelsea to be on top at the end of the break and at the last blast of the whistle.
Furthermore, the visiting contingent have been found napping at the back far too many times. The Hammers have conceded seven goals from their last three clashes away from home.
Meanwhile, Chelsea have found the back of the net no less than twice in four of their previous five h2h matchups here. With the likes of Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic running in and out of the final third, expect a high scoring affair by all means in this one.
