Michael Owen reveals his prediction for West Ham v Chelsea FC
Michael Owen looks ahead to Chelsea FC's clash with West Ham in the Premier League on Sunday
Michael Owen is backing Chelsea FC to continue their 100 per cent start to the new Premier League season by beating West Ham United this weekend.
The Blues have made a solid start to the new campaign under new boss Maurizio Sarri since the Italian’s appointment as Antonio Conte’s successor back in July.
Chelsea FC have won all five of their opening five Premier League games to leave them leading the way at the top of the Premier League table as they look to establish themselves as one of the main challengers for the title this term.
Sarri has been tasked with steering Chelsea FC back into the top four at the very least this term after the west London side finished fifth and won the FA Cup last term.
Chelsea FC are now preparing for their trip to the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon as they look to take on local rivals West Ham United.
And former Liverpool FC star Owen is tipping the Blues to have too much for the Hammers this weekend.
Writing in his column for Bet Victor, Owen said: “I watched West Ham’s win at Goodison at the weekend and thought it was an excellent result for the Hammers although it is fair to say that on the day Everton were there for the taking.
“West Ham have lost more Premier League London derbies than any other club and I feel Maurizio Sarri will become just the third Premier League manager to win his first six games in the competition after Carlo Ancelotti and Pep Guardiola.
“That said I expect the hosts to give them a real game in what should be a cracking derby.”
Chelsea FC head into the game on the back of kicking off their Europa League campaign with a 1-0 win at PAOK on Thursday night thanks to Willian’s seventh-minute strike in Greece.
