Match Preview

West Ham welcome Chelsea in matchday six of the Premier League (PL) on the back of their first win of the season, and will try to recreate last season’s atmosphere where they battled home to a 1-0 win, in a feisty match that also saw them get six yellow cards.
In these super-competitive H2H encounters, 62% of the goals have been scored in the second half, and both teams have scored in five of six. Furthermore, both teams have a record of: W2, D2, L2, from those six, and the winning margin has never been bigger than one goal in any of those matches.
The Hammers’ opening run of four straight defeats and ten conceded goals was the worst of any team this season. In their defense, however, they are the only team in the league to have opened with five matches against teams all currently located in the upper half of the table.
Chelsea have scored the first goal in five of six competitive matches this season, and in total they’ve spent only 21 minutes in a losing position this season!
Players to watch: Andriy Yarmolenko has three goals in his last two matches for club and country. Curiously, West Ham have won both matches he has started this season!
Rested in the EL, Eden Hazard is the PL top scorer (five goals) and bagged a hat-trick in the last round!
Stat attack: 32 yellow (5.33 on average) and one red card have been awarded in the last six PL H2H encounters between these sides.
Four of West Ham’s last six competitive games (all opponents) have seen both teams score and/or over 2.5 goals scored.
A 2-1 scoreline has also been produced in three of the last four H2H matches.
