Chelsea vs. West Ham United: Time, TV channel, stream, betting odds for Premier League showdown at Stamford Bridge

Much of the focus is likely to fall on Wesley Fofana at Stamford Bridge when the player described as a “Rolls-Royce of a centre-half” hopes finally to make his Chelsea debut.

France Under-21 international Fofana, who took that accolade from former Leicester City teammate James Maddison when his move to the Blues was confirmed on transfer deadline day, made the long-mooted switch for a reported £69.5m/$80m, eclipsing the £63m/$72.5m Chelsea lavished on Marc Cucurella on the eve of the new campaign.

Chelsea vs. West Ham United betting odds

West Ham are enticingly priced against a Chelsea side that head coach Thomas Tuchel felt were too easily troubled during their second defeat of the season when they lost 2-1 at Southampton on Tuesday.

Bookmakers clearly expect goals but West Ham are yet to be involved in a game featuring more than two this season. Chelsea’s past four games have produced 13, eight of which have come against them.
