Date: on the 08th of April, 2019 (Monday)
Match start: 20:00 (GMT+1)
Tournament: Championship of England. Premier League.
On Monday evening the 33rd round of the EPL will be closed by the match in frames of London derby on Stamford Bridge between Chelsea and West Ham.
For all seasons, for the Blues the Hammers are rather convenient rival but lately (since 2015) the team of Maurizio Sarri was winning only with a goal difference not more than 1 goal.
9 games have been played since that moment.
In three last matches against the neighbors the Pensioners haven’t won any match (2 draws and defeat). Now, when the fight for the berth into the Champions League is in full play Chelsea can’t lose.
And if to look at an outcome of the match against Brighton (3:0) the Blues won’t probably have any problems.
But with due respect to the Seagulls West Ham is strong football club. This is proved by the great results.
For 6 rounds in a row the football players of Manuel Pellegrini alter successes and failures.
According to this, now West Ham has to win but as the last victory on Stamford Bridge has been gained by the Hammers in 2002, the chances of a nominal underdog are not very high.
Though even under good results gained on home ground (10 wins, 5 draws and only one loss) Chelsea doesn’t demonstrate stability and that is why anything can happen.
West Ham is not a modest club and under favorable conditions it is able to take home at least 1 tournament point though it is better to use small handicap (+).
