Chelsea and West Ham United will face each other in the Premier League on Saturday.

Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that Chelsea will win against West Ham United this weekend.

Chelsea will take on West Ham at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Owen has backed the Blues to pick up all three points from the London derby.

“A lot of people were disappointed with Chelsea’s performance at Goodison in the FA Cup but I personally don’t think Everton have been given enough credit, with the Toffees irresistible at times at Goodison and well worthy winners,” the former England international wrote on Betvictor.com.

“Guus Hiddink has done a tremendous job of steadying the ship at Stamford Bridge and they can perhaps nick a likely cagey encounter in West London.”

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation; Under 2.5 Goals at 8/11 with BetVictor.”

Playing at home will give Chelsea an advantage, but West Ham should fancy their chances of winning the game.

The Blues have nothing to play for this season, while the Hammers have a top-four finish in the Premier League within their reach.

Slaven Bilic’s side have been playing well in recent weeks and have been getting positive results, and there is every chance that they could win the London derby.

West Ham will head into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw with Manchester United away from home at Old Trafford in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
