Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Alongside Hazard, Pedro has also been in excellent early season form, scoring three goals in five Premier League games.

He also has value to get on the scoresheet, and his form puts him as a strong football prediction in this clash.

The former Barcelona man is at 3/2 to score anytime with bet365.

2 We fancy:

Despite their morale-boosting win over Everton last weekend, West Ham still look shaky at the back. 

Chelsea have been ruthless so far this season, and they should have too much for them on Sunday afternoon.

A 2-1 Chelsea win is a promising football score prediction, available at 8/1 with bet365.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Hernandez is set to return and lead the line against Chelsea, in place of Arnautovic. The ex-Manchester United player was a thorn in Chelsea’s side last season, scoring a late equaliser at Stamford Bridge. 

He is yet to score in league action this season, with one goal in the EFL Cup, but he is always a threat.

If you are looking at history to repeat itself in your Premier League preview, he is at 19/10 with bet365 to score anytime.

One to Watch: Eden Hazard

Hazard was given an extended break following the World Cup, and he has been a big feature of Premier League predictions since his return. 

Any game involving the Belgian is always worth a shout on your weekend football predictions list, particularly as he has four goals in his last three games.

He is at 4/1 with Paddy Power to score first.

West Ham will be without top scorer Marco Arnautovic, who has a knee injury. However, they are hopeful that Javier Hernandez will be fit to return to the first team. 

Jack Wilshere, Andy Carroll, Manuel Lanzini and Winston Reid are all still out.

West Ham vs Chelsea Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Chelsea head to the London Stadium to face West Ham on Sunday

The absence of Austrian international Arnautovic is likely to be key in this game, as with him on the field, West Ham carry a far greater threat.

Without him, Chelsea should be able to take better charge of the game from the off. 

The Blues have started games strongly this season, scoring inside the opening 45 minutes in three of their fixtures so far.

With that in mind, they are 11/5 to be 1-0 up at half-time, in a football bet tip and prediction with a real profit return on it. 

Another option is a penalty to be awarded, as Chelsea have had three already this season – all successfully converted by Hazard – and West Ham have had one, with Arnautovic scoring it.

A spot-kick to be given in this game is a football betting tip for the weekend that is worth looking at, and it comes in at 23/10. 

Predicted Score: West Ham 1 - 2 Chelsea
