West Ham have been involved in a lot of high-scoring games of late and it will be interesting to see if that trend continues when they come up against Chelsea's resolute defence. Chelsea were held to a goalless draw at home to Brighton on Tuesday night and if they were to lose against the Hammers then they would drop out of the top four once again.

Read on for our full match preview and prediction for West Ham vs Chelsea in the Premier League.

Our Tops Three Predictions for West Ham vs Chelsea

All of our tips contain no bias and have been researched using the latest stats and figures available at the time of publication.

All odds are subject to change but the prices shown are correct on the date of publication. Please check with your bookmakers before placing any bets. 

West Ham Double Chance

West Ham have a decent record against Chelsea over the last few seasons, picking up three wins and two draws from the pair's last seven encounters and we're predicting that the Hammers will avoid defeat on Saturday as well. West Ham have only lost two of their last six matches in the Premier League and beat Leicester in their last home games.

Over 2.5 Goals

Over 2.5 goals have been scored in each of West Ham's last four outings and we're backing at least three goals to be scored on Saturday, despite the fact that Chelsea don't tend to score or concede many goals under Tuchel. Chelsea's last away game produced 5-goals and they also recently lost at home to West Brom, a game in which 7-goals were scored.

BTTS

Both teams have scored in each of West Ham's last four league games and Chelsea have only failed to score in two of their last six fixtures. When West Ham last played host to Chelsea both teams scored as the Hammers ran out 3-2 winners and we're confident that Saturday's game will be equally entertaining and end-to-end.

West Ham could make a real statement by beating Chelsea this weekend

West Ham owe Chelsea one following the 3-0 defeat the Hammers suffered at Stamford Bridge in December and a win this weekend would be the perfect tonic as it would take David Moyes' side ahead of their London rivals in the Premier League table. West Ham have been so impressive this season and David Moyes is doing a fantastic job in reinserting his name as one of the best British managers around. Breaking down Chelsea's defence and claiming all 3pts isn't going to be easy but if anyone can do it, then an open and attacking Hammers would be my selection. Dawson, Rice and Antonio have been ruled out of Saturday's clash through injury and Cresswell, Masuaku and Lingard will all face late fitness tests.

Tuchel was very disappointed by his team's performance during the 0-0 draw with Brighton and admitted that Chelsea didn't deserve to win the game. However, Chelsea remain in the top four above West Ham on goal difference and head into this weekend's clash with plenty of motivation for the 3pts. Tuchel has made Chelsea far more solid at the expense of goals at time but it has, so far, brought success. However, this weekend Chelsea might well need to be more open and attacking as West Ham will take the game to their guests. Silva and Kovacic could both miss the short trip to the East End due to injury.
