West Ham United vs Charlton Athletic
England – League Cup
Date: Tuesday, 15 September 2020
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Olympic Stadium.
The Hammers are one of the most competitive teams from the Premier League, and their spirit was in full display at the end of the last campaign, when they avoided getting the boot – competing against the likes of Bournemouth, Norwich, Aston Villa etc.
Striker Michail Antonio was probably the find of the season, as he was scoring goals left and right – especially in crunch situations.
This time around in the PL, the team has some tough fixtures in the opening weeks, and they could do a whole lot better with some confidence-boosting wins.
And that’s where the Addicks come in. They are from the third division in the English football hierarchy, and that alone should tell that they are punching way above their weight this Tuesday.
And to further pile on, their confidence has taken a great beating due to their recent relegation, and to make things even worse, they are on the road this game week.
Likely, West Ham have the upper hand this Tuesday at the Olympic Stadium.
West Ham United vs Charlton Athletic: Head-to-head (h2h)

- The team had also kept clean sheets in three of the previous five appearances at home ground.
West Ham United vs Charlton Athletic: Prediction
The Addicks are from the League One, while they are about to lock horns against a Premier League team. The difference in quality of either competition is staggering, and any squad from the PL would be considered an overwhelming favorite – let alone David Moyes’s men, who are on a hot streak.
They were phenomenally good towards the end of the last campaign, as they were trying to avoid getting placed in the bottom tier of the table. Meanwhile, counterparts Lee Bowyer’s men have taken a huge hit to their self belief due to their recent relegation.
Going on, the Hammers also do have a great h2h record against this rival over the years, and all the reasons combine to pick out West Ham the probable winner this match-day.
