West Ham United v Chelsea 13:30

We get going on Sunday with an all-London Premier League clash as West Ham entertain Chelsea at 1:30pm.

The Blues have started the season in cracking fashion – winning all of their opening five matches and head into week six top of table but it goes without saying that by the time this Sunday fixture comes around they might have been knocked off the summit. Before this round of games Chelsea can be backed at 10.00 to win the league.

In contrast, West Ham have not had the best of starts – losing their opening four games. However, they did get back on track last weekend with a decent away win at Everton and that moved them up to 16th.

The match betting suggests a win for Chelsea, despite being the away side, with the Blues on offer at 1.45, the Draw 4.50 and West Ham at 6.50.

West Ham’s Marko Arnautovic has hit the ground running this season and has netted three times already, while Chelsea’s Eden Hazard is their main man at the moment with 6 league strikes already – both will be popular in the scoring markets.

Despite Chelsea the clear favourites to get all three points here, the Hammers will, however, get hope from knowing they won this repeat fixture 1-0 last season and also took 4 points off the Blues last term.

Over 2.5 goals is sure to be popular too as 5 of the last 7 head-to-heads went that way – this is on offer at just 1.57 though. Therefore, the better value looks to be to side with BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE at a much-better 1.70.

Both sides are in good scoring form of late, while 85% (6 of last 7) of recent clashes also saw both teams find the back of the net.
