Hernandez leaves Chelsea's top-four bid in tatters

Cesar Azpilicueta opened the scoring at Stamford Bridge with a soft goal against a West Ham defence in disarray as they stood ball-watching when the Spaniard struck in the 36th minute.

"It's a competitive game, Saints are in a hard position, and at the end it got a bit out of hand", Welbeck said.

Chelsea began to crank up the pressure shortly after, increasingly filtering their play through Hazard and Willian.

However, Morata mitigated this with some excellent link-up play which contributed to Chelsea's opener in the first half. Morata was on the end of both of them.

Sriram: Kings XI Punjab capitalised on the new ball
Karun Nair (50), who also notched up a half-century, played a gem of an innings to help his side reach close to the victory. Barring a few who have been retained, most of the domestic and some foreign players have joined the team this season.

Conte had admitted losing at home to Tottenham 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 Champions League.

Chelsea produced 23 shots on target, with Joe Hart putting in a man of the match performance to deny the hosts from finding a late victor through substitute Olivier Giroud.

"There's nothing wrong with the shape, they're in a good shape", he said on Sky Sports (H/T Express).

West Ham's sporadic attacks were however Moore risky, and restored to the side skipper Gary Cahill had to be at his very best to thwart Marko Anoutovic, on 15 minutes. The most worrying part is, it's not a surprise, we've seen this time and time again this season. 5 years later start against them & put in a fantastic team performance❤⚒ fans were different class too. joe hart!

Moyes went to his bench and brought on Hernandez, who took just three minutes to make his mark.

But next Monday they host fellow strugglers Stoke knowing a defeat would drag them right back into trouble ahead of a tricky run-in including fixtures against Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City.

In the past, Javier Hernandez was the super-sub at United who seldom failed to hurt Chelsea, and the situation has not much changed since then, as the talented figure delivered Conte's men a lethal blow last night.

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

Andhra Pradesh special status row: N Chandrababu Naidu meets Arvind Kejriwal
The Centre, he said, has earmarked Rs.500 crore for various projects in Andhra Pradesh. But if they go with the Congress, then Naidu will be perceived as a rank opportunist.

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. A phenomenal recovery challenge from N'Golo Kante prevented the goal - and led to a fizzing shot from Hazard on the break within 15 seconds.
