Boost for West Ham, blow for Chelsea in top four race

The findings are a big boost for West Ham heading into the final couple of months of the season.

Chelsea will be a tough nut to crack this season.

Thomas Tuchel has worked wonders since taking over at Stamford Bridge.

West Ham are well capable of usurping the Blues, however.

If the Hammers beat Arsenal on Sunday, we will be level on points with Chelsea heading into the international break.

West Ham welcome Chelsea to the London Stadium on April 24th. The outcome of that game will have a huge bearing on the race for the top four.

David Moyes has achieved so much since taking over at the London Stadium for a second time back in December 2019.

And guiding the Hammers to a top four finish would be a truly remarkable achievement by the Scot.

We have every chance of doing just that this season.

And the statistical analysis of the remaining matches for both West Ham and Chelsea will certainly give the Hammers fans a much needed shot of hope heading into the final 10-game stretch.
