Form Guide

In their last five games in all competitions, Chelsea have one win, two draws and two losses.

Thiago Silva opened the scoring early for Chelsea against Sheffield United, but Jayden Bogle equalised for The Blades before the halftime whistle. Noni Madueke regained the lead for Chelsea just after the hour mark but in the third minute of the extra time Oli McBurnie popped up with a goal to force a 2 - 2 draw.

Chelsea were back to winning ways against Everton. Palmer bagged a perfect hat-trick in under 30 minutes and was joined on the scoresheet by Nicolas Jackson to give The Blues a 4 - 0 lead at halftime. Another goal from Palmer and a late goal from Alfie Gilchrist secured the 6 - 0 win over Everton.

In the FA Cup Semi Final, Chelsea took on Manchester City. Despite having more shots on target, Chelsea had just 37% of the possession. Bernardo Silva scored the only goal of the game in the 84th minute to give City the 1 - 0 win.

The trip to the Emirates was one to forget for Chelsea. Braces from Ben White and Kai Havertz along with a goal from Leandro Trossard gave Arsenal the 5 - 0 win with Chelsea having just one shot on target.

The trip to Villa Park saw late controversy for Chelsea. An own goal from Marc Cucurella gave Villa the lead in the fourth minute and Morgan Rogers doubled the lead before halftime. Madueke equalised on the hour and Conor Gallagher equalised with ten minutes to go. Axel Disasi thought he had won it for Chelsea but VAR chalked it out and the game finished 1 - 1.

Chelsea also take on Tottenham in a big London derby.

In their last five games in all competitions, West Ham have two draws and three losses.

The first leg of the Europa League Quarter Finals saw West Ham in Germany. West Ham had just one shot in 27% of the possession as Jonas Hofmann and Victor Boniface both scored late on to give Bayer Leverkusen the 2 - 0 win.

Back in the Premier League, West Ham hosted Fulham. Andreas Pereira opened the scoring for The Cottagers in the ninth minute and doubled the lead with 20 minutes to go. West Ham couldn’t find the back of the net in four shots on target and slumped to another 2 - 0 loss.

The second leg of the Europa League Quarter Finals had West Ham hosting Bayer Leverkusen. Michail Antonio opened the scoring for West Ham in the 13th minute but in the last minute of the game Jeremie Frimpong found the back of the net to force a 1 - 1 draw for Leverkusen.

West Ham were handed a shock loss to Crystal Palace the next time out. Goals from Michael Olise, Eberechi Eze and Jean-Philippe Mateta and an own goal from Emerson Palmieri gave Palace the 4 - 0 lead at the 30 minute mark. Michail Antonio did get West Ham on the scoresheet before halftime and an own goal from Dean Henderson added another for West Ham but another goal from Mateta gave Palace the 5 - 2 win.

The last time out for West Ham was against Liverpool. Jarrod Bowen gave West Ham the lead on the stroke of halftime but Andrew Robertson equalised just three minutes into the second half. An own goal from Alphonse Areola gave Liverpool the lead after the hour but a late goal from Antonio gave West Ham the 2 - 2 draw.

FlashPicks Prediction

Both sides have had some roller coaster form of late, making this clash likely to end with a share of the points. Palmer is the likeliest of scorers for The Blues whereas Kudus could also put his name on the scoresheet. Chelsea 1 - 1 West Ham
