Unfancied Hammers stun champions

West Ham kicked off the Premier League weekend by causing a 13-2 upset against Chelsea as Marko Arnautovic’s goal gave the Hammers a 1-0 victory over the champions.

The correct score had been an 18-1 chance before kick-off and Hills eased Chelsea from 1-5 to 2-7 for a top-four finish.

Across London at Wembley, 30-100 favourites Tottenham brushed aside Stoke 5-1 and there were significant victories for Huddersfield, 2-0 winners over Brighton, and Swansea, who beat West Brom 1-0.

Christian Benteke missed a late penalty for Crystal Palace in their 2-2 draw with Bournemouth, Burnley beat Watford 1-0 and there was a coupon-buster in the Sky Bet Championship as leaders Wolves – 4-11 shots – were held to a 0-0 draw at home to ten-man Sunderland.

Key stats
  • Sassuolo are unbeaten in their last three against Sampdoria
Expert verdict
Sampdoria have the best defensive record this season in Italy, conceding just four goals in all competitions but they may struggle to beat a decent Sassuolo side. Samp's top scorer Gregoire Defrel will no doubt be eager to notch against his former club, although Sassuolo's only defeats this season have come at Juventus and Napoli and at home to Milan.
