Chelsea expected to hammer old rivals

Chelsea are a top priced 1.4 with bet365 and Betfred to beat West Ham at Stamford Bridge and history suggests that they are worthy long odds-on shots to do just that.
The Hammers have not won away to the Blues since September 2002, losing six of the past seven games at their London rivals’ home ground.
The visitors also have a whole host of injury problems coming into this, and having moved into the quarter-finals of the UEFA Europa League during the week after a 3-2 aggregate over Steaua Bucharest, Chelsea will be brimming with confidence.
That success took their unbeaten run at home to seven games in all competitions, and they really should be able to win this with a bit to spare in what is a vital game for them to secure all three points.
They currently sit fourth in the league on 52 points- two behind Spurs but with a game in hand – and manager Rafa Benitez will know a win over West Ham will keep his team’s hopes of UEFA Champions League qualification alive.
Juan Mata, who scored the opener against Steaua, has been in outstanding form all season and looks good value at at 6 with bet365 and Paddy Power to repeat the dose and bag the first in this.
He can also be backed at 2.25 with Betfred in the anytime market, and that looks a big price given that he is as short as even money (2) to do so elsewhere.
Chelsea to win to nil also looks worth considering at 2.5 with Paddy Power and in the correct score market I like the look of a a 3-0 win at odds of 9 with Paddy Power.
