One defeat… Predicting West Ham United’s festive period results

West Ham

As the Premier League enters the busy festive period, we take a close look at West Ham United’s next three games against Chelsea, Arsenal and West Bromwich Albion.

Chelsea v West Ham United (Boxing Day)

West Ham United returned to winning ways at the weekend and are having a great season.

However, winning against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge will be too tough for the Hammers, who are likely to lose the game on Boxing Day.

Sam Allardyce’s West Ham side are going to make it hard for Chelsea at the Bridge, but one would expect Jose Mourinho’s men to overcome their London opponents.

Prediction: 2-0

West Ham United v Arsenal (Sunday)

West Ham have been a force at the Boleyn Ground and they will head into the game against Arsenal with confidence.

Just like the clash against Chelsea, it will not be easy for the Hammers, but this time they could just about eke out a draw.

Arsenal will be favourites to win against West Ham, but their defensive frailties mean that they will concede against a Hammers attacking line-up brimming with confidence.

Prediction: West Ham United 2-2 Arsenal

West Ham United v West Bromwich Albion (New Year’s Day)

West Bromwich Albion are not having a great season and are likely to get more involved in the relegation fight as the season progresses.

This does not mean that West Ham will be able to roll over the Baggies on New Year’s Day, but they will certainly fancy their chances of winning all three points at the Boleyn Ground.

Anything other than a West Ham win in this match will be a surprise.

Prediction: West Ham United 3-0 West Bromwich Albion
