Premier League Preview: Chelsea v. West Ham

premier league picks week 33

Some Monday Night Football in the capital to close out Gameweek 33 of the Premier League and still plenty to play for, for both of these teams.

There’s plenty still to play for at PlayON as well, with cash still on offer in the Daily Fantasy competitions on offer for the game. To move you towards those cash places, I have picked out my best plays for your PlayON squads from this game.

Chelsea v. West Ham

Two wins on the bounce for Chelsea keeps them in contention for a top four spot. The Hammers have a couple of wins in their last five, but a few losses in there – the very definition of mixed bag!

In 45 previous clashes, the Blues hold a 24-12 lead in terms of wins, with nine draws. Two of those nine came in the last two meetings and Chelsea haven’t beaten the Hammers in the last three. Does that mean I’m all over away players for my PlayON sides? Probably not, but they’ll get more of a look in than they would before I read those stats.


With a goal and an assist against Brighton, the best average in this game continues to belong to Eden Hazard (£15.6m).

Fourteen goals, and 12 assists, for the season see the Belgian averaging 1430. Expect him to take similar form into this game and have him as the first name on your teamsheet.

Value Pick

Given a first start against the Seagulls, Callum Hudson-Odoi (£5.3m) responded with an assist. The lack of appearances means the price is rock bottom, but if he gets another start here he has the potential to score well above his current 620 average.

POD Pick

A price of more than £10m, and average of less than 550 and playing against favoured opposition, there are plenty of reasons the ownership of Marko Arnautovic (£10.3m) will be low this round.

But given the Hammers favourable recent record against this opposition, there is scope for some of their players for DFS purposes.

In that case, the Austrian is the one for me, given he’s settled back into the side following injury and is due some goals.

Another round down and just five week to go, plus a couple of catch up games. That means still plenty of chances to win some money at PlayON, so be sure to keep checking in for player previews.

Pick your team now.

Good luck!
