Moses In Action As West Ham's Chicharito Punishes Chelsea

While the Blues had a few good moments against Tottenham, they simply couldn't deal with the counter which shows how far the side has fallen from last season. Arnautovic did well to cut the ball back for the Mexican, whose first-time strike from 13 yards out beat Thibaut Courtois at his near post. West Ham have lost four out of their last six games and are dangerously close to the relegation spot.

West Ham, who had been much improved in beating Southampton 3-0 a week ago, offered little until Hernandez's intervention soon after coming on.

But Cairney's visit to Stamford Bridge is sure to only increase speculation that he could move to the London Stadium, ahead of the summer transfer window.

Javier Hernandez believes the club are moving in the right direction but has stressed the importance of retaining momentum after Sunday's result, with The Hammers unable to afford many slip-ups.

Hammers manager David Moyes said: "He is out for the season". No lead more unsafe than a 1-0, and Chelsea were made to pay for that again, as we have been many times this season.

The draw leaves Chelsea in real danger of missing out on Champions League football for next season, with the champions 10 points behind Tottenham in fourth. That said, their form has been so erratic over the past couple of months that in likelihood, they will welcome Liverpool to Stamford Bridge next month with the top four already beyond them.

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

"The thing is we have to start playing good football and winning games, because if we don't do that we can not get in the top four".

A player of his calibre will not stick around for long if he doesn't have the chance to carry on winning trophies, and Willian might be tempted to look for new opportunities after the World Cup.
