Antonio Conte's men were held to a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, something which appears to have put paid to their fanit hopes of finishing in the Premier League's top four.

But Javier Hernandez stepped off the bench to drag the Irons back on level terms with 17 minutes remaining and Joe Hart made a fine save to deny substitute Olivier Giroud a late victor.

Conte had admitted losing at home to Tottenham for the first time in 28 years last weekend was a huge setback in Chelsea's bid to salvage a dismal campaign by qualifying for the Champions League.

Chelsea football club paid the ideal tribute to former player and assistant coach; Ray Wilkins, who passed away due to a cardiac arrest last Thursday.

"Chelsea were really good in the first half but we kept it to one".

It was only West Ham's third touch inside the Chelsea's penalty area.


Willian forced Hart into a sharp save on 36 minutes after being played in by Hazard, but the hosts scored from the resulting corner.

Willian had a fierce drive diverted behind before Morata saw a goal ruled out after straying into an offside position to receive Hazard's incisive pass.

Belgian attacker Eden Hazard got a chance to give his side the lead in the 3rd minute but his shot went off target as the visitors were gifted a goal kick from the lose attack.

The Mexican's effort, driven into the corner after Marko Arnautovic's fine cut-back, moves David Moyes' team six points clear of the relegation places. Javier Hernandez came off the bench to score the equalizer for the Hammers to cap off a memorable night for the visitors.

Marcos Alonso nearly spared Chelsea's blushes with a thunderous strike, but Hart finished as West Ham's hero with superb saves to keep out that effort and one from an Olivier Giroud header.
