Sky pundit predicts Hammers fate at Stamford Bridge

Sky pundit Paul Merson predicts that West Ham’s evening game this Sunday against Chelsea will be a bridge too far for the away team.

Merson writing on the Sky Sports website said: “It’s a big game but I do fancy Chelsea. After last week, though West Ham had a good result, it’s a huge game for Chelsea. Chelsea have to put a show on for their fans after last week against Tottenham. That was a disaster. Fair play to West Ham last week, to turn up in major pressure. It’s unbelievable. For me, I just think this is a game too far for them.”

Chelsea sits in fifth place in the Premier League table in the Europa qualification spot eight points behind Spurs in fourth place.  With West Ham in 14th place, David Moyes could see the game as a free hit and he has nothing to lose by going.

  1. Fantasy – Irons win!

    Reality – Irons lose.

    Too many injuries. No pace or guile in the team. Why so? Abysmal player recruitment strategy last summer as well as January. Not down to Mr Moyes; down to despicably incompetent leadership from the co-owners/board. Insufficient player quality in depth now the usual sick notes out for long stretches: Carroll, Reid, Collins and now Lanzini and Antonio. Chelsea, Arsenal and City incredibly tough asks. Leicester pretty tricky but this game is a one point possibility. Stoke winnable…unless they kick our remaining fit players off the park. 4 points target is realistic; anything more would be nothing short of a miracle. 37 points at the reckoning?

    PL survival hinges on a minimum of 4 points from the remaining fixtures plus fellow strugglers losing, repeatedly.

  2. I think we could hope for a park the bus draw – Chelsea seem to have lost the cutting edge that they had last season
