A huge London derby awaits Chelsea and West Ham this weekend, as the Hammers play host to Chelsea on Saturday evening.

With six league games left until the end of the season, Chelsea and West Ham are level on points with 55 points each, but Chelsea are fourth with a higher goal difference.

This Saturday’s game is a huge tie for the two teams, and former Chelsea star Joe Cole is sitting on the fence for this fixture, having come out of the West Ham academy and featured for the Hammers in the early days of his career.

Chelsea defeated West Ham 3-0 in the reverse fixture back in December, but Joe Cole has predicted a draw at the London Stadium.

Asked for his prediction ahead of this weekend’s match, Cole told JOE: “Draw. That’s proper sitting on the fence, isn’t it…?!

“If West Ham avoid defeat in this game then I think it’s on. Sipping an Estrella on the beach in Barcelona!”
