Odds

Chelsea 3/10

Draw 17/4

West Ham 17/2

Prediction

Chelsea have won four of their last five at home, while West Ham have lost five of their last six away from home.

With competition for places fierce and the Europa League quarter-final against Slavia Prague on Thursday, Maurizio Sarri's line-up could be a surprise.

The Hammers have kept it tight in recent meetings between the sides, with just three goals in the last three London derbies. Expect this to be similar but the Blues to edge it 1-0 to take a big step towards claiming a top four place.
