Premier League Tickets: Chelsea FC vs West Ham United, 15 August 2016
For their team, West Ham fans are hoping to see reinforcements to strengthen the front, and may even get versatile Ghanaian forward Andre Ayew, if rumours are to be believed, but Aaron Cresswell’s absence with a knee ligament injury, possibly needing surgery and likely to keep him out of action for up to four months, will be a severe disappointment.
Chelsea fans, for their part, will pray that new manager Antonio Conte will lead their club back to glory after the uncertainties of the last year. In addition, they will be eager to see what new signings N’Golo Kante and Michy Batshuayi can bring to the game. A core of club players there for the right reasons, a progressive new manager and quality young new players in the team will make for a fiery mix this season as the Blues fight to bounce back.
Last time these teams met the result was a 2-2 draw. No one wants that again! However, it is not at all clear yet who is in the ascendancy, despite their relative positions in the standings. West Ham’s position at 20 has sent fans into a frenzy not to see relegation, while Chelsea fans will not want to see their team drop out of the top four and will be aiming for the ultimate prize. Hold onto your hats and make sure you have your tickets for Chelsea FC vs. West Ham United 15th August 2016.
