Michael Owen states his prediction for West Ham v Chelsea

The Blues are now seated third in the table eleven points behind leaders Manchester City and three below second-placed Manchester United after fifteen rounds of fixtures.

West Ham are facing an uphill task to survive after their worst ever start to a Premier League season.

With Pep Guardiola's side showing no sign of faltering, Chelsea midfielder Willian is well aware the pressure is on Conte's team to avoid any slip-ups.

West Ham will be desperate for all three points at the London Stadium, but Chelsea should prove too strong on Saturday.

"Last year I wasn't playing often".


"I'm not going to stand here and say it's been fantastic because, for me, football is not enjoyable unless you're winning games".

West Ham have enough talents within their ranks to actually challenge for a top 6 finish, and many have suggested English striker Andy Carroll remains the club's best shot at escaping the drop.

The Italian was given a clear warning his side can not expect an easy ride against the Hammers during the east London side's trip to Manchester City last weekend when they lost out to a late goal. Adrian, his replacement, made a series of saves, has continued to impress in training this week and has been told that he will keep goal at home on Saturday.

The Hammers find themselves stuck in the relegation zone with no wins in their last eight league games, with David Moyes collecting just one point from his opening four games in charge. I think we should continue with the line of defending well and looking unsafe when attacking.

"The hosts may well score but with Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata in such good form for the visitors, it is hard to look beyond an away win".
