Overall since 1993, West Ham has 10 victories, 5 ties and 19 losses against Chelsea, where only 4 of those victories come on Stamford Bridge with the last one in 2002. The Hammers are priced as the outsider in this match with high odds @ 8.50 and the tie @ 5.00. While the team has a potential, they haven’t really shown anything away from home. With first season, in Premier League, after a season spent in the Championship, the Hammers have done well and they are safe for next season. This was the team’s highest priority and they will be looking for improvements next season.
