Three things West Ham can do to defeat Chelsea FC

Olumide Alake




Pellegrini led West Ham side will host Chelsea FC in the 6th week of the English Premier League.

So far the Hammers have been able to get 3 points having defeated Everton in their last match.

West Ham hopes to defeat the Blues to get another 3 points and bring down Chelsea from the top of the EPL table.

But with the way and style, the Blues are playing under their new coach, Sarri Maurizio, it will be a difficult win for West Ham.

West Ham have some advantage over Chelsea owing to the fact that the Blues participated in the Uefa Europa League and are yet to return from Greece (as at the writing of this report) which means they have less than 48 hours to train and get their act together for their trip to the London Stadium.

For the Hammers to defeat Chelsea, they must do this three things,

1. Stop Eden Hazard

This is the most dangerous player in the Chelsea squad at the moment and he is expected to play against West Ham.

If the Pellegrini squad can make things difficult for Hazard then they are one step ahead.

2. Make use of their last form.

West Ham defeated Chelsea when they met last season under Antonio Conte, although the blues are under a different man, West Ham can still give their last form a trial.

3. The home advantage

West Ham will play host to Chelsea and the Hammers are always under less pressure whenever they play from home.

They can use this against Chelsea.

Eden Hazard

Chelsea will be playing against West Ham for their sixth match in the English Premier League.

The Blues had flown out to Greece to play in the Europa League as they face PAOK.

Chelsea defeated the Greek side with 1 goal to nothing but could have scored more owing to Spain International, Alvaro Morata refusing to find the net for the Blues.

Willian gave Chelsea the winning goal and so far the Blues have managed to keep their 100 per cent record.

Of all the Blues squad that flew to Greece, the following players were left behind and they include Eden Hazard (reason – tiredness), Matteo Kovacic (reason – injury) and David Luiz (reason – rest.)

This means the players will be returning to the Premier League for another fresh match.

The Blues will be playing against West Ham and it is expected of them to keep a clean sheet.

Chelsea talisman and Belgium international, Eden Hazard will make a return in the Premier League, having given the Blues a wonderful performance against Cardiff.

As you reckon,  he went as far as scoring a hat-trick for Chelsea.

David Luiz is also expected to make a return to the Blues defense line after Gary Cahill took his place in the Europa League.

Sarri Maurizio

The Blues left-back defender, Emerson was left out of Chelsea squad that travelled to Greece to play in the Uefa Europa League despite being eligible.

Emerson has not started for Chelsea this season despite the fact that he played in the preseason.

Although he is not the only one in the shoes, it seems coach Sarri Maurizio may be rating him below par.

Emerson seems to be growing frustrated at Stamford Bridge as he had taken to a popular social media site, Twitter, to celebrate the Blue win over PAOK in Greece.

But he had left a controversial message behind his celebration tweet.

The left-back in his tweet said he is not injured, which could mean that Sarri has intentionally refused to start or even bench him.

Many Chelsea fans seem to have decoded the message which has now been deleted and Sarri will need to answer some questions.

This is because the Italian in a report disclosed that Emerson has an injury which is why he is yet to start.

The recent development is a hint that Emerson is growing frustrated with Marcos Alonso already featuring in all matches at Chelsea while he is yet to make at least one appearance.
