East and West London will clash at the London Stadium as the relegation-threatened Hammers take on the high-spending Blues
The most wanted capital clash rarely fails to exception fireworks. The lunchtime London clash between West Ham and Chelsea in the English Premier League looks pretty exhaustive.
West Ham has found themselves in one of the comfortable positions in recent weeks after performing a poor start in the season. Their comeback was very powerful when they were able to make a crucial win over their rivals Everton in a tough fight away at Newcastle.
Hosts are still in the 17th position even after cherishing two positive results.
Despite those two impressive performances, the hosts are still in a vulnerable position in the standings, 17th, and they enter this match in the nation’s capital having dropped eight of their previous 10 London derbies.
Chelsea, on the other hand, has had a rocky start to life under new manager Graham Potter, having won only one of their seven games since the beginning of 2023. As a result of their recent performance, Chelsea has fallen to ninth place in the Premier League.
Potter’s selection issues appear to have gotten worse as a result of a $360 million spending binge during the most recent transfer window, which saw Mykhailo Mudryk, Joo Félix, and Enzo Fernández join the Blues. This has increased the pressure already placed on the former Brighton boss.
