West Ham and Chelsea meet this evening in a massive London derby in the race for Champions League qualification.

Amid the ongoing fallout from the European Super League fiasco, the Hammers remain in with a chance of joining Leicester City in breaking the supposed ‘Big Six’ and reaching Europe’s top table next season.

A win over the Blues would go a long way to achieving that, while Chelsea will know they likely have to win given their far tougher run-in compared to the Hammers, Liverpool and Tottenham.

Date, time and venue

West Ham vs Chelsea is scheduled for a 5.30pm BST kick-off on Saturday, April 24, 2021.

The match will be held behind closed doors at London Stadium.

West Ham vs Chelsea prediction

A very intriguing game that could well see a cagey game plan from each team, knowing that avoiding defeat is perhaps more important than trying to win - despite the tight race.

Both teams have the firepower, with Jesse Lingard seemingly unable to bag while Thomas Tuchel looks to have found a formula up front after sorting out his defence. A draw under the lights in London. 1-1 draw.
