Can West Ham defeat Chelsea/ Spurs and Liverpool to win the EFL Cup?
West Ham has already beaten Manchester United in the EFL cup. On 28th October, they also beat Manchester City on penalties.
West Ham beating Manchester City comes as a surprise because the Cityzens are dominant domestically. They won the league title 4 times consecutively.
Chelsea will likely defeat Brentford but for West Ham, the path gets more difficult. If they defeat Spurs they will then proceed to face Chelsea and then either Liverpool or Leicester.
West Ham has not only made progress in the EFL Cup but also in the Premier League. Currently, they sit 4th in the table with one game in hand. If they defeat Aston Villa then they will be second in the League.
After finishing 16th in 2019/20, in the following season, West Ham finished 6th over Arsenal and Spurs. They, unlike ” The Top 4 “, are on a moderate budget.
Currently, Michail Antonio has scored 6 goals and has 3 assists. He is also leading in terms of most shots by a West Ham player.
West Ham has an xG of 1.8 and a goals conceded ratio of 1.11. Both of these stats are great as it is rather surprising for them to perform consistently.
