After a 1-0 win against Greece side PAOK, Chelsea will return to Premier League football this weekend with an away trip to fellow Londoners West Ham.

Maurizio Sarri’s men are currently top of the table and have had a great start to the season, winning five games out of five, while playing attractive football to say the least.

West Ham have been having a poor season, but got their first win of the league campaign last weekend against Everton, and will play host to a rampaging Chelsea side at the London Stadium on Sunday.

BetVictor brand ambassador Michael Owen is expecting Chelsea to get the three points on Sunday, and has backed the Blues to win 3-1, although he expects the Hammers to give the Blues a tough afternoon.

He said: “I watched West Ham’s win at Goodison at the weekend and thought it was an excellent result for the Hammers although it is fair to say that on the day Everton were there for the taking.

“West Ham have lost more Premier League London derbies than any other club and I feel Maurizio Sarri will become just the third Premier League manager to win his first six games in the competition after Carlo Ancelotti and Pep Guardiola.

“That said I expect the hosts to give them a real game in what should be a cracking derby.”
