Chelsea Women are set to travel across London to face West Ham United Women on Wednesday, in a Women’s Super League (WSL) encounter that could have major implications in the title race. The Blues will head into the match in high spirits after they edged past Manchester United 1-0 in the Women’s FA Cup final on Sunday. Emma Hayes’ side demonstrated their winning mentality and the Chelsea coach will be looking for her team to continue their unbeaten run across all competitions.

The Blues have won their last four matches and are just one point behind league leaders Manchester United in the WSL table. However, they still have a game in hand and if they can grab the three points against West Ham on Wednesday, they will move to the top of the standings.

In contrast, West Ham has struggled in recent months and is winless in nine league games. The Hammers have picked up just two points from their last nine matches and are currently in 11th place in the table on 17 points. While the East London club is not mathematically safe from relegation, they are expected to stay in the top tier, with six points separating them from the sole relegation spot.

West Ham will be hoping to put in a good performance for their fans but they will struggle against Chelsea, who have already beaten them twice this season. The East London club has lost 3-1 and 7-0 to Chelsea this term in the WSL and League Cup respectively.

Chelsea will be without the services of Millie Bright and Fran Kirby, while West Ham is unable to call upon long-term absentee Jess Ziu, who is still recovering from an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

Prediction: Chelsea win

Both sides will be looking to put on a show, but Chelsea has too much quality compared to West Ham, and we expect them to come out on top in this encounter. We predict a comfortable 4-0 win for the Blues, who will overtake Manchester United in the standings if they can grab the three points on Wednesday.

In conclusion, fans can expect an entertaining game, as both sides will be looking to prove a point. With just three games left to play, every point is crucial in the WSL title race and expect to see Chelsea throw everything at West Ham to secure the win.
