Chelsea vs West Ham Head to Head statistics:
The last time both the sides met, they shared points in a goalless draw. Chelsea’s performance was disappointing in the game, with the likes of Willian and Jorginho underperforming.
However, the times have since changed for Chelsea, as Maurizio Sarri is increasingly using youngsters like Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi in the team.
The Chelsea boss handed Hudson-Odoi his first-ever Premier League start in the game against Brighton and Hove Albion in the mid-week fixture. Unsurprisingly, Chelsea rattled through their opponents with a 3-0 win, as Hudson-Odoi assisted Chelsea’s first, while Loftus-Cheek scored an insane curler.
West Ham, meanwhile, faced a setback in the game against Everton with a 2-0 loss in the mid-week. With the loss, Pellegrini’s side slipped out of the top-10 in the Premier League table.
