Rafa Benitez search for a first goal as Chelsea manager goes to Upton Park in Saturday’s early kick off, as the European Champions face West Ham United.
The hosts, who have slipped to tenth place after suffering back to back defeats for the first time in almost a year, could welcome back midfielder Yossi Benayoun and defender George McCartney following their respective injuries, though Ricardo Vaz Te, Alou Diarra and Mohamed Diame are all out.
Sam Allardyce’s men are as generously priced as 4.33 (10/3) for the victory, with Chelsea odds on at 1.91 (10/11) with most firms. Stan James offer the best price of 3.6 (13/5) for the draw.
Chelsea go in to the game on the back of their 0-0 draw against Fulham on Wednesday evening, having achieved the same score-line in Sunday’s visit of Manchester City.
The last time Chelsea played out two goalles games was under Claudio Ranieri, before the arrival of Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, and the two results won’t have helped a new manager who is already struggling to win over those fans who challenged his appointment.
The visitors have no fresh injury worries, though Daneil Sturridge, Frank Lampard and Captain John Terry remain side-lined.
The last time these two teams met was towards the end of the 2010/2011 season. Chelsea ran out 3-0 winners in a game where that saw Fernando Torres grabbed the first of his eleven league goals for the Blues so far, and the Spaniard is favourite to open the scoring Saturday lunch-time, with Bet Victor offering the best price of 7.0 (6/1).
