In the upcoming fixture of the English Premier League, the mighty Blues will host West Ham United for a decisive match. After losing four matches in their last six games, Chelsea FC is now struggling for some identity. Despite starting the season in a good form, Antonio Conte’s men have lost their rhythm and lost at home to Tottenham Hotspur after 46 years in their last game so they would be seeking some redemption for themselves from their fans by presenting them with a victory in this game against the hammers. Unlike the hosts, the visitors would come into this game with high confidence as they won their last game against Southampton FC by three goals to nil. Chelsea FC will start as favourites in this game but if West Ham could rekindle the same magic they created against Southampton then it might become very difficult for Chelsea FC to get a victory in this game.
