OVERVIEW OF: Chelsea vs West Ham: Mark Lawrenson predicts scoreline of EPL clash
Former Liverpool player, Mark Lawrenson has predicted the scoreline of today’s Premier League clash between Chelsea and West Ham United.
Chelsea will on Monday night host West Ham at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League tie.
Frank Lampard’s side head to the game after losing 2-1 to Wolves in their last Premier League encounter, while West Ham played a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace.
Providing his prediction, Lawrenson backed Chelsea to secure a 2-0 win over West Ham.
“West Ham are in good shape – really well organised, resilient, and with a threat going forward,” Lawrenson told BBC Sport.
“Chelsea have narrowly lost their past 2 games, at Everton and Wolves but that only backs up what I thought about them already – that they’ve got the makings of a very good side, but are not quite there yet.
“This should be a good game, and West Ham will make things difficult for Frank Lampard’s side, but I think it will see the end of this little blip by the Blues. Chelsea 2, West Ham 0.”
The kick-off for Chelsea vs West Ham is scheduled at 9 pm, Nigerian time.
