Ahead of Monday’s Premier League game against West Ham at Stamford Bridge, Michael Owen has given his prediction for the game.

West Ham are much improved under David Moyes in the Premier League this season and are just one point behind Chelsea.

Despite West Ham’s improved form this season and Chelsea’s struggles in our last two games, Owen is backing Chelsea to beat West Ham 3-1.

“It’s been a tough week for Frank Lampard’s Chelsea,” Owen told BetVictor.

“They went into last weekend as genuine title contenders, but after back-to-back defeats, the Stamford Bridge faithful will have been left scratching their heads.

“West Ham arrive here unbeaten in two. The Hammers have been difficult to play against this season, so Chelsea will have to be at their best if they are to win this.

“The Blues are undefeated in 11 of their last 12 home matches. Interestingly, there have been over 2.5 goals in five of West Ham’s last 6 league matches.

“I can see goals on the menu again, and although Chelsea are wounded, I think they’ll get the result they need.”
