With six games of the season remaining, only three points separate third-placed Leicester City and seventh-placed Liverpool.
Michael Owen has backed Chelsea to boost our Champions League hopes this weekend by beating West Ham at the London Stadium.
Owen told BetVictor: “Fans of West Ham and Chelsea both scan the fixture list at the start of the season for this one, and on this occasion, given the position of both in the table, it’s all set up to be a vintage rendition of the London Derby.
“For the Hammers, Champions League football is a real possibility and the prospect of beating one of their fiercest rivals as they both go for qualification will be salivating for Hammers’ fans.
“That said, this Chelsea side are proving to be a hard nut to crack for any side that crosses their path.
“The Blues’ 1-0 victory against Manchester City epitomised their defensive solidity, and if they can maintain that level of performance, I think they could be one of few teams to leave the London Stadium with maximum points this season.”
Prediction: West 1-2 Chelsea
