Chelsea vs West Ham

Chelsea vs West Ham
English – Premier League
Date: Mon, 8 April 2019
Kickoff: 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Stadium: Stamford Bridge (London).

In the Premier League this season, in addition to the race between Liverpool and Man City for the championship, the competition for 3rd and 4th place is equally dramatic with the participation of Tottenham, Arsenal and Chelsea. In particular, Chelsea are fifth with the same 63 points for Arsenal and only poorly on the sub-index. The Blues still have a chance for a Champions League place next year, although it is very difficult. Therefore, they could not allow themselves to break in the battle with West Ham in this round.
Everything for Chelsea has improved recently. They have won two consecutive rounds, in which, a gentle victory against Brighton with a 3-0 score is very important, helping them to overcome MU to rise to the current 5th position. Further in the last 6 appearances in all competitions, Chelsea only lost 1 match and 1 draw and 4 wins.

Home ground will be a solid fulcrum for Chelsea in this round. Stamford Bridge Stadium is where they have been unbeaten for the past 5 consecutive times, including 3 wins. In addition, their opponent in this round is just an unstable West Ham, so a victory is something that Sarri teachers and students cannot afford to lose. Only 6 matches will be closed in the season, Chelsea are not allowed to lose any more points. 

After 32 rounds, West Ham are currently 11th in the standings with 42 points, 14 points higher than the red light group. With this gap, the relegation task for West Ham in this season is considered to be completed soon. Therefore, the motivation of the visitors will not be too big. The past few matches have shown that West Ham's form is quite erratic. Especially on away field, they are having a series of bad matches with 6 consecutive wins without up to 5 isolated losses.
