West Ham United manager David Moyes has a quite incredibly bad record away at Chelsea.

West Ham head to Chelsea this afternoon in what is a huge game for the club.

The Scot has worked wonders since taking over as Hammers manager for the second time way back in December 2019.

He has guided West Ham to back-to-back top seven finishes and has totally transformed the culture of the club.

All of that doesn’t mean that he’s immune from criticism, however.

One of the main criticisms of Moyes is that he sets up too defensively against the better sides away from home, and shows them far too much respect.

David Moyes’ record against Chelsea

The Scot will be looking for his first ever win at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.

Moyes has managed 17 games away at Chelsea whilst in charge of Preston, Everton and West Ham.

In those games, his teams have lost 10 and drawn seven.

That really is a very poor record indeed.

Let’s hope that the Scot mixes things up today and goes for it against Chelsea. The Blues are there for the taking at the moment in my opinion.

David Moyes now has a proper squad at his disposal with options galore from the bench, and we would love it if West Ham went toe-to-toe with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.

The game kicks off at 3 o’clock and should be an absolute cracker.
