Chelsea have won their last two league games, and the Blues will be seeking a third consecutive Premier League victory as the Blues host West Ham on Monday.
Chelsea have six games left to play in the league this season, and the Blues will be pushing for a third place finish. Wednesday’s 3-0 win against Brighton took Chelsea above Manchester United who had lost to Wolves, and the Blues currently sit on fifth spot, level on points with Arsenal who have a game in hand. Tottenham are third on the table, and Chelsea are just a point behind Spurs.
BetVictor brand ambassador Michael Owen has backed Chelsea to win Monday night’s home game against London rivals West Ham. Owen has predicted a 3-1 win in Chelsea’s favour.
He said: “Chelsea followed up their late win at Cardiff with a resounding 3-0 home win over Brighton on Wednesday and will be hoping to make it a quick double when they host West Ham.
“Victory is looking essential to keep their top four hopes alive and with only one defeat on home soil in the PL this term they have made Stamford Bridge quite a fortress.
“The Hammers have taken just one point from a possible last eighteen on the road and despite plenty of attacking flair are highly unlikely to add to that tally here.”
There was a better atmosphere at Stamford Bridge as the Blues defeated Brighton 3-0, and Maurizio Sarri was pleased this time having been jeered against in the game against Cardiff.
With a more positive atmosphere from the fans against Brighton, Sarri was pleased with the fans and said “thank you” after the game.
Sarri said in his press conference: “The atmosphere in Stamford Bridge was wonderful today. The fans helped the players for 90 minutes. It’s easier when you win 3-0, but the atmosphere was wonderful and we have to say thank you to our fans for that.”
