Barclays Premier League fans can catch live online video of all the mid-week action, including League Cup winners Chelsea traveling to West Ham for a hard-fought London Derby Wednesday afternoon. That match will be just one of seven Premier League matches Wednesday, and all of them will stream live online.
A link to the West Ham vs. Chelsea match live stream can be found below. In addition to Chelsea, winners of the League Cup final last Sunday with a comfortable defeat of Tottenham Hotspur, five more of the seven teams atop the Premier League table see action Wednesday, with only fifth-place Southampton idle after their 1-0 defeat of Crystal Palace on Tuesday.
After Manchester City lost a shocker at Liverpool over the weekend, Chelsea now sits five points clear at the top of the table and would appear to have the 2014/15 Barclays Premier League title well within their reach.
While the West London team travels to East London for this derby, Chelsea should remain the heavy favorite, despite what promises to be a hard-fought affair. In the last 17 league meetings between the two sides, Chelsea have won 13 while losing only one, with three draws.
In fact, in their last four league showdowns, Chelsea has not allowed a single goal to West Ham. For that matter, when the Hammers faced Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in a Boxing Day match earlier this season, they didn’t even enjoy a shot on target.
The two teams appear to be on opposite trajectories. West Ham has won only once in their last 10 Barclays Premier League games, drawing five and losing four. Chelsea, on the other hand, has fallen to defeat just one time in their last 11 league matches — in a wild 5-3 loss to Tottenham, their eventual opponent in the League Cup final.
Sam Allardyce’s West Ham squad will greet Chelsea without Carlton Cole, who remains sidelined with hamstring trouble. Andy Carroll is also unavailable with an injury, and Morgan Amalfitano has yet to serve out his suspension.
Chelsea, on the other hand, is nearly at full strength, missing only Nemanja Matic, who is serving a two-game suspension, and John Obi Mikel, who will be recovering from surgery until April.
Other games Wednesday, all of which will be viewable in live online video via NBC Sports Live Extra, include second-place Manchester City hosting Leicester City, Arsenal playing on the road in another London Derby against Queens Park Rangers, and Tottenham Hotspur welcoming Swansea City to White Hart Lane.
All of those games kick off at 2:45 p.m. United States Eastern Time, as does Manchester United away at Newcastle.
West Ham vs Chelsea starts at 2 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time on NBC Sports Live Extra, which is accessible at this link, or on mobile devices by downloading the NBC Sports Live Extra app.
