Chelsea’s hopes of earning any silverware this season is all but over following their 2-0 exit from the FA Cup at the hands of Everton last weekend and the current campaign can basically be written off as a huge failure by the Blues.

Chelsea do have pride to play for from now till the end of the season though and manager Guus Hiddink will surely be urging his players to end the campaign in a strong fashion for the sake of their fans.

Doing so will not be easy as they have a host of tough games coming up, starting off with a clash against Champions League chasing West Ham United this weekend.

Diego Costa will be unavailable for the clash due to suspension while the likes of Eden Hazard, Kurt Zouma and Radamel Falcao are struggling with injuries.

West Ham United are enjoying a dream season so far and the Hammers were so close to sealing a place in the semi finals of the FA Cup last weekend but were undone by a late goal concession against Manchester United.

Nonetheless, the morale in the West Ham camp is currently at an all time high and Slaven Bilic’s men will now be looking to continue their rampant march towards a place in the Champions League by earning a good result against struggling Chelsea this weekend.

Winston Reid is an injury concern ahead of the clash while the likes of James Collins and James Tomkins are ruled out. Victor Moses will also be ineligible to play against his parent side on the day.

Chelsea vs West Ham United Match Prediction

West Ham have a poor record at Stamford Bridge, having failed to claim a single victory in the stadium for over 14 years. However, Saturday will be a good a chance as any to rectify the record for the Hammers and they will surely be intent on doing so.

That said, Chelsea remain unbeaten in the Premier League under Hiddink and a close fought stalemate might be on the cards during the day.
