West Ham punish wasteful Chelsea

Declan Rice of West Ham United celebrates his side's win following the Carabao Cup Fourth Round match between Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United at Wembley Stadium

Antonio Rudiger says that "it is not easy to explain" why Chelsea failed to push on after opening the scoring against West Ham United, having been held to a 1-1 draw.

West Ham were surprise 3-0 winners against Mark Hughes' Southampton side at the London Stadium last weekend to give them renewed hope of beating the drop under David Moyes.

Cesar Azpilicueta had given Chelsea the lead in he first half, attacking a loose ball in the six yard box with the help of some bad defending on West Ham's part.

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

Conte had conceded losing at home to Tottenham Hotspur 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 Uefa Champions League.

When all is said and done at the end of Javier Hernandez's career it will be criminal if he isn't included in the same discussion as Ole Gunnar Solskjær as the Premier League's greatest-ever super sub.

Just three minutes later, the Mexican global powered a low shot beyond Thibaut Courtois after Gary Cahill had failed to clear Mark Noble's floated ball into the box and West Ham held on to secure a draw that moves them six points clear of the relegation zone. West Ham have lost four out of their last six games and are dangerously close to the relegation spot.

It was only a temporary reprieve for West Ham as Conte's men took a 36th-minute lead from the resulting short corner.

But a poor piece of defending saw Chelsea go into the lead 10 minutes before half time.

With six games left, Chelsea can still mathematically reach the Champions League, although that would require a collapse from both Liverpool (who have five games remaining) and Tottenham (who have six games to play). We begged for the goal, ' he told Sky Sports after the match.

The Daily Mirror have suggested how Cairney is one of West Ham's main transfer targets in the summer.
