* 2h00, April 8, 2019, Stamford Bridge Stadium, the 33rd Premier League round
Each round against Chelsea now affects not only the race to the top 4, but also determines the fate of Maurizio Sarri on Stamford Bridge. People always have a feeling, just another bad result for "Blues", an Italian coach will have to leave the towel immediately to leave London.
In fact, Maurizio Sarri has the right to feel unfair to what he has received. Compared with last year, Chelsea won more than 6 points. They also came to the finals of the EFL Cup and entered deep into the European League.
Nevertheless, many players' performances made the fans dissatisfied. Typically, a meeting with Cardiff last weekend, when Chelsea had to make two late hits and somewhat controversial, can win 3 points.
In the match against Brighton in the middle of the week, Blues has become easier. However, the performance of Callum Hudson-Odoy and Ruben Loftus-Chek in the match made the fans even more skeptical about the decisions made by Maurizio Sarri in the past.
If Chelsea fans continue to see the team is unstable, you should probably look at West Ham to compare them. In the last 6 games they won 3 games, and after each victory they defeated. In any case, this is a more progressive achievement than the previous five consecutive series of non-winning matches.
In case the form continues, West Ham will receive 3 points in the London derby tonight, helping them stay close to the top half of the ladder. Long-time fans will easily recognize the cause of the West Ham form. When "The Hammers" scored a goal they did not lose. But when they do not get naked, they have to go home empty-handed.
Loftus-Cheek got the chance in the last 2 games. If he managed to overcome the knee injury he had encountered in Brighton, the name in the starting lineup will continue to be given to the Englishman. The recent struggle for Slavia Prag in the European League, Maurizio Sarri, will have to make reasonable personnel changes.
Meanwhile, West Ham will welcome the return of Samir Nasri, Felipe Anderson and Arnautovic. There are still long-term absentee names, but Mark Noble and Javier Hernandez will be able to play in the starting line after they have not played against Everton.
Chelsea has made significant progress in the recent match against Brighton. They also have a good home form this season, while West Ham often has to get a disappointing result every time they have to be guests. When the season ends, Chelsea must not lose points. The winner will likely stay tonight at Stamford Bridge.
