Mark Lawrenson has suggested that he is worried where West Ham United’s goals are going to come from, when writing his regular prediction column for BBC SPORT, as he backed Chelsea to come away from the London Stadium with all three points tomorrow night.

The Hammers are in all sorts of trouble. They are currently sitting in 17th spot in the Premier league table, level on points with 18th placed Bournemouth and 19th placed Aston Villa.
David Moyes has made absolutely no impact whatsoever since taking over at the London Stadium.
Chelsea, meanwhile, are flying high in fourth spot in the table. Unlike the Scot, Frank Lampard has made a massive impact in west London – much the same as he did during his playing days. And he has built a well-oiled machine at Stamford Bridge.
Hammers are huge underdogs
Not many people will fancy West Ham’s chances of turning Chelsea over tomorrow night. Even the most ardent of Hammers fans will not be confident in their team’s chances.
And Mark Lawrenson agrees.
The BBC Sport pundit explained how he is worried by West Ham’s lack of potency in the final third, when writing his regular Lawro’s predictions column:
Chelsea have not played well for the entire game in any of their three games in the past 10 days, but they have won them all. West Ham in contrast, have lost two out of two and my worry with them is still where their goals are going to come from. It is hard to see them getting anything out of this game but all is not lost – they have got two home games against Watford and Aston Villa in the final fortnight of the season. It looks like the relegation battle will go right to the wire.
Lawro’s prediction: 0-1
Let’s hope that David Moyes can spring a surprise. West Ham need to take the game to Chelsea. A point would be ok, but the Hammers really need all three.
Lampard’s side will be very hard to break down, but if the Hammers’ big name players stand up and produce when it matters, Moyes’s men could be capable of causing a shock tomorrow night.
