West Ham-Chelsea: Chelsea hammered by West Ham

David Moyes’ West Ham United side fought back twice before stealing three points late on, triumphing 3-2 over Chelsea whilst extending their impressive record to three wins in their last five outings against the ‘Blues’.

Chasing their eighth consecutive victory over a London rival, Chelsea probed throughout the opening stages, before eventually finding a breakthrough midway through the first half.

Nodding a header into the ground and beyond an outstretched Łukasz Fabiański, Thiago Silva bagged his first goal of the Premier League campaign to give the ‘Blues’ a deserved lead.

Such hard work to get themselves in front was undone by a moment of madness from the usually assured Edouard Mendy, who clumsily brought down Jarrod Bowen after failing to clear a poor Jorginho backpass.

Manuel Lanzini stepped and tucked the spot-kick into the corner to equalise for the hosts.

However, Moyes’ side would not enter the break on level terms, as a sublime Mason Mount side-footed volley restored the European Champions’ advantage just one minute before the interval.

With their visitors unbeaten in the last 48 games they’d led at the break, West Ham’s task was always going to be difficult, yet the ‘Hammers’ struck back through Bowen just 11 minutes after the restart.

The one-time non-league player showed a touch of class as he swept a left-footed effort into the bottom corner for his fourth goal of the season.

Having previously trailed twice, West Ham took the lead for the first time with only three minutes left on the clock, when Arthur Masuaku’s deceiving cross-turned-shot caught Mendy off his line.

The Chelsea shot-stopper was unable to palm away the dipping effort, during what had been an afternoon to forget for the Senegalese international.

A killer blow for Thomas Tuchel’s title-chasing side, who suffer their first league defeat since September.
