Hernandez earns West Ham valuable point at Chelsea

PACE Ian Carlo Poveda beats his man

The Chelsea players all wore black warm-up shirts with Wilkins's number 8 on their backs.

The hosts picked up where they left off and were threatening Hart's goal within just 60 seconds of the restart, this time Willian dragging a low shot wide after another flowing move through the centre - led, predictably, by Hazard and Morata.

West Ham United snatched a point at Stamford Bridge this afternoon as the Hammers drew 1-1 with Chelsea in a fixture that could have gone either way. With a top-four place on the line, Sunday promises another heated contest.

Just a few minutes later, his international team-mate did what he had failed to do.

Exploiting the space behind Cheikhou Kouyate, Hazard fashioned a series of chances for the Blues to wrap things up before the break.

"They are the champions, let's not forget". Evidently, a victory for Pochettino's men will make it virtually impossible for Chelsea to get the prestigious Champions League place.

Cesar Azpilicueta had given Chelsea the lead in he first half, attacking a loose ball in the six yard box with the help of some awful defending on West Ham's part.

Alvaro Morata got goal side off a cross from Eden Hazard, but his attempt at a back-heel finish didn't materialise as it sailed across goal.

It was a huge moment for West Ham manager David Moyes, whose team now face a vital relegation clash against Stoke at the London Stadium next Monday, already sitting six points clear of the relegation zone. Other teams in the league are more clinical.

In midfield, Cesc Fabregas' creativity and N'Golo Kante's tenacity will be the perfect combination against a disjointed West Ham attack.

"Our position is not comfortable enough yet". The ball looked destined for the top corner but Hart stretched to tip it over the bar.

As his influence grew, Morata also came alive.

Chelsea have scored two or more goals in six of the last seven meetings between the sides, and as the Hammers have conceded at least three goals in each of their last three games on the road, there is every chance that there could be some goals in the game.

Although Tottenham were dominant in possession, the scoreline would paint a different story.

"We gave away a really poxy first goal".

"Joe Hart probably needed a game like that".

"Definitely. Like the last weeks again, we give them a gift".

Kevin Peacock: Chelsea 5 - 0 West Ham. It has been 28 years since Tottenham last won at Stamford Bridge. Everything about their attempt to repel the corner had been slack. We win, lose and draw together. But he would have cursed the reality Chelsea's campaign is petering out.
