Preview: West Ham United vs. Chelsea – prediction, team news, lineups
On the back of respective 1-1 draws to kick off the 2023-24 Premier League season, West Ham United and Chelsea square off in Sunday afternoon’s London derby at the London Stadium.
Both sides came from behind to salvage a point in their opening encounters, as David Moyes’s side held Bournemouth while the Blues pegged Liverpool back at Stamford Bridge.
Beginning a new era without Declan Rice manning the midfield, West Ham also attempted to consign Manchester City’s relentless pursuit of Lucas Paqueta to the back of their minds when they travelled south for their opening Premier League fixture of the new term against Bournemouth.
A 51st-minute Jarrod Bowen effort propelled the Europa Conference League winners into the ascendancy, but Bournemouth responded eight minutes from full time through Dominic Solanke, as West Ham escaped with a point despite enjoying just 37% of the ball at the Vitality Stadium.
Moyes lamented Bournemouth’s “completely lucky” equaliser as the ball fell kindly for Solanke to tap home, but the West Ham boss admitted that his side invited pressure as the second half progressed, and similar tactics could potentially prove fatal against Pochettino’s new-look Chelsea.
A return to the London Stadium is just what the doctor ordered for the Irons, though, as they won each of their final three fixtures in front of their own fans last season and have lost just twice at home – to Newcastle United and Liverpool – since the turn of the year.
Furthermore, West Ham have found the back of the net in all of their competitive home fixtures since a 2-0 loss to Brentford in December, allowing the Hammers faithful to enter the weekend with a moderate sense of optimism, especially with Chelsea now reeling from yet another injury to their skipper.
