Chelsea Vs West Ham Dream11 Prediction: Maurizio Sarri’s side will be eager to bag all three points as they aim to finish in the top four.
Chelsea will play their London rivals West Ham United in a Monday night fixture as the Blues continue to bid for a place in the top four. Maurizio Sarri’s side have been blowing hot and cold over the last few months, but they will be aware of the must-win situation when they take up the field against the Hammers.
Since the turn of the New year, West Ham have picked up just 15 points from possible 36 points and their top half finish will hang on the air unless the Hammers pick up their form. The fierce rivalry between these two sides has not died having produced so many anti-climax over the last few years.
As Chelsea and West Ham United take each other on, we shall look at the Dream11 prediction.
Chelsea were catching up with Manchester City and Liverpool during the early stages of the season, but they have struggled to find their way over the last few months. The Blues have a rejuvenated front three in Eden Hazard, Callum Hudson-Odoi, and Olivier Giroud who caused havoc to Brighton’s defence and scored four past them.
West Ham spent nearly 100 million in the transfer window last summer to bolster their squad. So, there is no doubt about the quality at the stake. The likes of Felipe Anderson, Marko Arnautovic, and Mark Noble can step up to the occasion and cause trouble to the lacklustre Chelsea backline.
Both the managers will have their eyes on three points because Chelsea cannot afford to miss out on a Champions League spot next campaign, whilst West Ham were expected to charge for a Europa League spot this campaign.
Chelsea Vs West Ham United prediction
Chelsea: Maurizio Sarri does not have any headaches with injuries and suspensions. The Blues have a fully-fit squad and Eden Hazard, Callum Hudson-Odoi, and Gonzalo Higuain are expected to pair up in the front against West Ham United.
West Ham United: Carlos Sanchez, Andriy Yarmalenko, Jack Wilshere, and Winston Reid have suffered long-term injuries and will continue to sit on the sidelines. Felipe Anderson, Robert Snodgrass, and Marko Arnautovic will constitute the front three for Manuel Pellegrini’s side.
Chelsea: Kepa Arrizibalaga, Cesar Azipilicueta, David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger, Marcos Alonso, Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Eden Hazard, Willian, Gonzalo Higuain.
West Ham United: Lukas Fabianski, Pablo Zabaleta, Issa Diop, Angelo Ogbonna, Aaron Cresswell, Declan Rice, Mark Noble, Felipe Anderson, Robert Snodgrass, Manuel Lanzini, Marko Arnautovic.
Dream11 team for Chelsea Vs West Ham United
Eden Hazard scored one and set up one against Brighton and Hove Albion on Wednesday in a 4-0 victory. The Belgian International is the leading scorer and leading assister for Chelsea this campaign and his influence on the team cannot be written off. He should be a good captain pick against West Ham defence which have been struggling of late.
Marko Arnautovic’s campaign has been hindered because of injuries this campaign, but he remains to be the first choice striker up front for Pellegrini. The Austrian International is omnipresent in West Ham’s attack and is a prolific goalscorer. The forward must be able to get muscle out David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger at the back.
