For many years, the clash between FC Chelsea which sits on the 5th place and has 63 points in the display and West Ham United which sits on the 11th and has 42 points and the display, was called "District Line Derby" as Upton Park made their way straight from Stamford Bridge with the London Tube. Since the Hammers moved to London Stadium, the route from west to east in the metropolis was no longer possible directly with the "green line".
Nevertheless, both teams have remained rivals, even though the Blues and Hammers have barely measured themselves at eye level in recent years. While Chelsea continues to fight for Champions League participation this season and are in the Europa League quarter-finals, West Ham will once again end a season in the middle of the table.
Chelsea has lost three London derbies at home (9-4-3) over the past four seasons, more than they had previously accumulated in eleven seasons (34-13-3). However, since December 1994, Chelsea lost no Premier League match on a Monday (11-3-0). The defeat at that time was 2:3 against Manchester United (Red Devils). West Ham United won four of the last five London Derby Premier League games (a draw) after the East Londoners have previously been without a win in eight capital derbies (0-5-3).
Chelsea had problems in the last round but could rely largely on home strength. So at Chelsea against West Ham, our tip is 1/1 or both teams to score: No. Whether West Ham’s advantage, unlike Chelsea to have had a week of play on Monday, seems questionable. Chelsea is strong at home, losing just one game among the home fans so far this season, and have not conceded in seven of the previous ten clashes at home. Hammers, meanwhile, lost five of their last six matches away from home and have no goal scored.
