English Premier League Report, Chelsea v West Ham, 08 April 2018

English Premier League Report, Chelsea v West Ham, 08 April 2018

West Ham had the game's first decent chance on 13 minutes as Marko Arnautovic was picked out with a long pass but Gary Cahill did well to thwart the Austrian forward.

"It's nice to stay in the game".

The half ended with the home side leading by a single goal.

'I think in the second half we can finish the game.

"It is what it is, we just hope we can get him back quickly for the start of next year".

The hosts continued to pressure the Hammers for their first goal in this meeting but the visitors were defensively on point as they resisted all advances from Chelsea.

And but for a combination of profligate finishing and excellent goalkeeping from West Ham keeper Joe Hart - on loan from league leaders Manchester City - the Blues would have realised that aim. Hart, keen to restore his reputation as England's best goalkeeper before the World Cup finals, made fine saves from Marcos Alonso and substitute Olivier Giroud late in the game. "They created a lot but we stood strong". "We believed in the process and we got the result", Hart concluded.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Hernandez said: "I'm sorry to Chelsea fans but sometimes it happens". It's hard to explain. I don't understand after we go 1-0 up why we always drop off and let our opponents come onto us. "We have added another point to try and stay away from relegation".

The Mexico worldwide added: "These types of games are very hard, you have to be focused to stop a very good side like Chelsea". We're glad we could do that today to get this point. "Next up is Chelsea and we need some points there".

While it has been an up and down tenure so far at the club for Moyes, he has improved the side since he took over.

So of course when Chelsea-killer Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez arrived onto the scene, and scored his 9th goal against the Blues in 14 appearances to equalize, it was nearly expected.
