Sports Chelsea vs West Ham: Conte Reacts To Disappointing 1-1 Draw

Marko Arnautovic has become crucial for West Ham after a poor start to life in London

I think that was the first chance they [had].

Chelsea's faint hopes of finishing in the top four and securing Champions League qualification were all but dashed by London rivals West Ham, who earned a share of the spoils at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The Mexican's goal against the run of play - which moves David Moyes' team six points clear of the relegation places - was only West Ham's third touch inside Chelsea's penalty area.

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.

Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez scored 17 minutes to full time, to cancel out Cesar Azpilicueta's first-half opener at Stamford Bridge.

The Shed End welcomed the players with banners and a minute's applause was observed during the 8th minute, which signified his kit number from his time at the club.

All those near-misses came back to haunt Chelsea in the 73rd minute.

West Ham are scheduled to face off against Stoke, Arsenal, Manchester City, Leicester, Manchester United, and Everton.

Rice, 19, had a starring role as the Hammers eased their relegation fears with a 1-1 draw against Chelsea.

Joe Hart was also enormous as West Ham held on for a point. Cahill's clearing header was far from enough, presenting West Ham a second bite at the cherry which Arnautovic took with open arms. Moments later West Ham finally recorded their first shot of the game, a 25-yard sighter from Arnautovic that was comfortably gathered by the returning Thibaut Courtois.

"We came out with a point and that's massive for us going into the final six games of the season".

'We are creating a really good spirit in the team, right the way through, from the injured boys, the boys on the bench, we stick together on and off the pitch and Chelsea was a good example of that'. The talented 19-year-old has become a key man in the Hammers first team and he also made his senior global debut, against Turkey last month.

I would have probably commented earlier in the season that Chelsea's last few games look like a cakewalk for the most part, but Chelsea haven't been winning the easy games.
