As many coaches as current had to shiver in the Premier League rarely to their job. At Everton Marco Silva is about to sack, at Arsenal Unai Emery threatens a similar fate. Watford could make after a lack of success for the second time this season a coach dismissal.
Chelsea vs West Ham Soccer Betting Tips
Also strong in the criticism is Manuel Pellegrini of West Ham United (Table position 17, 13 points). The Hammers presented themselves hopelessly overwhelmed for weeks and crashed in the table.
West Ham is currently only three points from a relegation zone. No wonder that many fans are longing for an end to Pellegrini. However, the two club bosses Gold and Sullivan did not pull the ripcord – so far. Even though December is getting stressful, the upcoming tasks are a good way to get the Hammers back on track. Either with a new coach or with Pellegrini.
Frank Lampard does not have to worry about his job at Chelsea (fourth place, 26 points). So far, the commitment of the club icon turned out to be a brilliant coup. Lampard not only relies on numerous talents such as Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount or Reece James, but Lampard is also successful.
Although it may not be enough in the absolute top matches, as in the week before against Manchester City, the current top four placement is nevertheless an excellent interim result. In the Champions League missed the blues in Valencia the leap into the second round. In an entertaining game, both clubs eventually split 2-2 draws.
However, Chelsea has all the options to solve the ticket for the knockout round with a win in the final group game at home against Lille. At home Stamford Bridge Chelsea against West Ham, according to odds of bookmakers on Saturday, the big favorite.
The once known as District Line Derby duel is also a special for Blues coach Lampard. Finally, the 41-year-old at Upton Park was once a professional and his father Frank Lampard Senior is a Hammers legend with 551 matches.
Chelsea – Statistics & Current Form
Frank Lampard made history in his only 13 Premier League game as a coach. Last weekend, defending champion Manchester City scored only 46.74 percent of possession in their own stadium – never before had a Guardiola-trained side reduced the ball in 381 first-division games. Chelsea could not buy that at the end as the top match in Manchester was 1-1 : 2 lost.
This Chelsea conceded the recent four Premier League defeats all against teams that were among the top six teams last season (including all three bankruptcies this season). Also Chelsea remains the best offensive in foreign countries with 19 goals. The downside of the medal, however, are the 14 away goals – also a high in the league and a team that has the Champions League ranks as a goal, unworthy.
The Blues scored only 32 percent of Premier League goals at home (9 out of 28). So there is still a lot of work for the young blues crew of Lampard. The defensive problems could be alleviated as soon as the currently injured German international Antonio Rüdiger is available again. Because the duo Tomori / Zouma just makes too many mistakes.
At home Stamford Bridge Chelsea could win at the start of the season none of the first three league games (0-2-1). Meanwhile, Chelsea won the recent three Premier League games and played each to zero.
Four to-zero victories in the home there was the last time in January 2015. At the time five wins in a row succeeded the fourth against the Hammers. A good omen for Saturday? Maybe, but the Blues are also the towering favorite on three points, as between Chelsea and West Ham prove the odds of the bookmakers.
Chelsea will also play the 250th London Derby in the Premier League on Saturday (128-67-54). The blues have won most capital derbies and also come out on top scores (1.8 points per game).
As West London’s offensive is one of the best in the league (28, third place) and the Hammers from the east of the metropolis are defensively extremely vulnerable, Chelsea – West Ham advises the bet base prediction to “over 4.5 goals”. Chelsea scored the first goal of the match (eleven times) most often in this Premier League season. Five of these eleven goals went to Tammy Abraham (league high).
Ironically, Abraham threatens to fail after his contracted in Valencia hip injury. In addition missing probably Ross Barkley, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Antonio Rüdiger. Ruben Loftus-Cheek is definitely not a candidate for Saturday.

West Ham – Statistics & Current Form
West Ham United has been without a win for seven Premier League games (0-2-5). The latest three matches were all lost and the Hammers conceded three goals. In the Premier League history West Ham has conceded twice four bankruptcies in series, with at least three goals conceded (previously in September 2010 and September 2016). The Hammers, however, would be the first team to do this negative trick three times.
West Ham is currently fourth last and conceded 23 goals. Only Norwich (28), Southampton (31) and Watford (26) – who are currently relegated – conceded even more goals. Strongman Roberto Jiménez is heavily criticized – in fact only number two behind the injured Lukasz Fabianski. Jiménez has been pummeling regularly over the last few weeks, and so badly that some experts have already labeled him the worst Premier League keeper ever.
In all competitions West Ham conceded a goal every 41 minutes (Roberto 19 in 775 minutes, Fabianski eight in 574 minutes). Pellegrini is accused of continuing to rely blindly on Jiménez, although with David Martin would be another veteran.
The days of Manuel Pellegrini seem counted due to the crisis, but who is acting as a successor? The commitment of the Cowley brothers Danny and Nicky would have been interpreted as a bold decision.
The two teachers from Essex are lifelong West Ham fans and for a few weeks coach at Premier League relegated Huddersfield Town. The Terriers previously managed only seven points in 34 games, get under the Cowleys eight counters in six games. Out of a team that could not stop losing, to make a troop that can not lose anymore, it’s overwhelming.
Huddersfield is struggling with a wave of injuries. The brothers made a name for themselves at Lincoln City, which they led as a non-League club in the FA Cup quarter-finals and from the fifth-class National League to the League One marched through.
But instead, West Ham seems to favor Rafa Benitez, who, however, like Pellegrini once decided for big money in China and renounced European top football. For West Ham United, this would be the second coach to win back from the deathbed to the best league in the world.
There are also rumors surrounding the return of David Moyes. In May 2018, the contract was not renewed with the interim solution, it came Pellegrini. Now, should Moyes suddenly be West Hams Messiah? It would be a very questionable return action. West Ham has lost most of the Premier League London derbies of all capital clubs (67-48-99).
The next bankruptcy would be number 100. At Chelsea – West Ham are the guests according to odds of bookmakers only outsiders. But Michail Antonio – after his substitution against Tottenham last weekend one of the few assets – met in each of his last three London Premier League derbies. Issa Diop is missing yellowed. Lukasz Fabianski and Manuel Lanzini are injured.
