  • Arnautovic needed a spot of tough love to get back to best, says West Ham boss Moyes

West Ham United manager David Moyes is hopeful that his side are very close to staying in the Premier League.

While the Blues had a few good moments against Tottenham, they simply couldn't deal with the counter which shows how far the side has fallen from last season.

New Customers can get Chelsea at an enhanced 25/1 to beat West Ham.

Javier Hernandez came off the bench to score against Chelsea.

Chelsea (fifth place, 56 points) is 11 points back of a Champions League spot and needs to win to have any hope of even fighting for fourth.

West Ham team: Hart, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Rice, Noble, Zabaleta, Kouyate, Masuaku, Arnautovic, Joao Mario, Fernandes.

His goal had goalkeeper Joe Hart, himself a star on Sunday, praising the diminutive striker for his desire following an global call-up on the other side of the ocean.


Chelsea produced 23 shots on target, with Joe Hart putting in a man of the match performance to deny the hosts from finding a late victor through substitute Olivier Giroud.

Willian came close to extending the lead a minute into the second half, but dragged his shot just wide after good work by Eden Hazard.

But Cairney's visit to Stamford Bridge is sure to only increase speculation that he could move to the London Stadium, ahead of the summer transfer window.

Morata did not bring his shooting boots this afternoon, and it appears like he has neglected to wear them for much of the second half of the season; Manchester United centre-back Chris Smalling, with two goals, has scored more times than the Spaniard in the Premier League in 2018.

Forward Javier Hernandez is back after overcoming an illness.

In the 24 minute Alvaro Morata found the back of the net for Chelsea, but his goal was disallowed due to him being an off-sides position.

One player stood head and shoulders above the rest of his team-mates with a terrific display, though it wasn't enough to drag Chelsea to a victory.
