Chelsea vs West Ham: Prediction, kick-off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results, odds today

Chelsea remain firmly in the hunt for European football ahead of their clash at home to West Ham Premier League.

The Blues proved too good London rivals Tottenham on Thursday night thanks to goals from Trevoh Chalobah and Nicolas Jackson, and it means they are now only two points behind sixth-placed Manchester United ahead of the final few games of the season.


West Ham, meanwhile, are surely coming towards the end of the David Moyes era, with Julen Lopetegui currently the frontrunner to take charge this summer.

It looks increasingly unlikely the Scot will stay at the club beyond the end of his contract at the end of the season and, as a result, it’s about finishing on a high.

One of the most successful managers in Irons history, Moyes surely deserves that.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Chelsea vs West Ham is scheduled for a 2pm BST kick-off time today, Sunday May 5, 2024.

Stamford Bridge in London will host.
