Chelsea vs West Ham

Antonio 'a big miss' for West Ham says Moyes

West Ham came into this match with the unsavoury events of their previous home match and a threat of relegation providing a risky narrative lurking readily on the sidelines for any slip-ups by Moyes' men.

Javier Hernandez came off the bench to score against Chelsea.

"We have only seven games left this season, so we will take our time and make the right decision on whether he needs further surgery or that time will heal the problem".

Chelsea remain fifth on 57 points and are now 10 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur in the league table.

The former England midfielder, who played for Chelsea for six years in the 1970s and had several spells as the club's assistant coach, was remembered by fans who laid flowers outside the stadium.

Respects paid, Chelsea had to focus on finding a way to end a damaging run of one win from their previous four league matches.

West Ham were nearly pegged back again on 79 minutes as Marcos Alonso fired a long range effort but Joe Hart produced a brilliant save to deny the Spanish defender.

The Blues were defeated by Spurs last week at home, 3-1, and are on the outskirts in the race for a Champions League berth next season.

Willian was inches away from doubling Chelsea's lead early in the second half after Hazard's clever back-heel gave the Brazilian space to shoot just wide.

"But I can say that this is a goal of mentality".

His finish today was emphatic, as his side footed strike leaving Thibaut Courtois with absolutely no chance between the sticks.

However, Hernandez, on as a substitute, struck his ninth career goal against the Blues to earn a point for the Hammers. "They created a lot but we stood strong". There will be more changes in the starting spot yet with Hart being ineligible to face Manchester City in their upcoming fixture, however, both keepers want to win a starting berth on merit rather than default and they need to show more command of their box if they're to do this.

He'll be a big miss against Chelsea, although it's a game that West Ham will be hoping to get something out of, as opposed to expecting.
