West Ham come into this game on the back of some great form where they have not lost since the last 7 games on the trot in all competitions while not losing by more than 1 goal since 22nd November when they dropped to a 4-1 loss to Tottenham. West Ham have now started getting all their players fit and ready for the tail end of the season, where they can hope to push for victories that can enable them to secure a Champions League birth. West Ham have a great attacking threat in Payet, Antonio, Sakho, Valencia and Lanzini who have continued to deliver strong performances that has helped them grab results and lose just 2 games since that Tottenham loss. Defensively they now have Song/Kouyate in the midfield to give cover to the back 4 which has seen them play extremely tight at the back.


Chelsea on the other hand are going through a tough spell, after getting knocked out of the Champions League, FA Cup and Capital One Cup, a high finish with a Europa League spot is all that they could potentially play for despite being undefeated in the league since Hiddink has taken over. Chelsea will be missing several important players coming into this encounter with Terry, Zouma, Hazard and Falcao all missing this encounter due to injuries and Costa suspended for this encounter; its difficult to see if Traore can hold up the front line for Chelsea up front along with Pato who might be in line for his first start of the season. Defensively, Chelsea have been quite poor conceding goals in 9 straight games in a row in all competitions, and coming back from a 2 game losing streak to Everton and PSG.


This game will be an extremely tight one, with West Ham looking to fight for that Champions League spot; I expect them to either nick a narrow win, or worst case draw this encounter. IN either case, I am going to ensure myself on the Asian Handicap of +1 goal for West Ham.
