West Ham Utd vs Chelsea FC 24.04.2021
Despite a 3-2 loss at Newcastle last weekend, West Ham’s lofty ambitions of finishing in the top four still remain intact and they will get a glorious opportunity to go head to head with one of their main top-four rivals in what is expected to be an explosive London derby.
Chelsea blew the chance to jump into third on the table as Tuchel, with an eye on the upcoming Champions League semifinal against Real, opted to rest some of his big guns in the midweek game against Brighton at the Stamford Bridge and they couldn’t break down the stubborn visitors and they were forced to share the spoils in a dour goalless draw. That point was enough to dislodge the visitors from 4th position.
We expect a very tough and physical encounter here, particularly to start the game. However as the game wears on, we could have chances either way with legs getting weary. We are therefore backing the second half of this game to have more goals than the first.
