Arsenal win; Chelsea held by West Ham

Arsenal win; Chelsea held by West Ham

Chelsea's hopes of qualifying for next season's Champions League hang by a thread after stuttering to a 1-1 draw at home to West Ham United on Sunday. 'Next Monday against Stoke is our game of the season now.

Andreas Christensen is handed a rest, amid a testing breakthrough campaign for him at Stamford Bridge, while Alvaro Morata once again leads the line. We begged for the goal, ' he told Sky Sports after the match.

The latter's 20-yard shot deflected just wide halfway through the first half, before Cesar Azpilicueta put a free header over the crossbar from the resulting corner.

Joe Hart was also huge as West Ham held on for a point.

All those near-misses came back to haunt Chelsea in the 73rd minute.

The Spanish striker saw his second effort of the game ruled out for offside on the hour after tapping in Willian's cross, while Victor Moses drilled a fierce strike past Hart's charmed goal. "They're the Champions and they had a poor result last week so we knew they would be at it".

Many feel Liverpool have their top-four place pretty much sealed at this stage in the season, the lack of reaction to the Reds dropping points against Everton on Saturday underlines this.

Zinedine Zidane: 'Cristiano Ronaldo needed a rest'
Atletico Madrid occupy 2nd spot with 67 points while Real Madrid are 3rd position with 63 points after 30 games. Zindedine Zidane has said he believes Gareth Bale will stay at the Bernabeu.

With 70 minutes on the clock, Hernandez was brought on, a sight for sore eyes of Chelsea defenders gone by.

However, Hernandez, on as a substitute, struck his ninth career goal against the Blues to earn a point for the Hammers. David Moyes' West Ham meanwhile are now six points clear of the relegation zone.

They have a chance to finish this season with a title if they win this year's FA Cup - as they face Southampton in the semifinal clash later this month.

But the fact remains, Conte has presided over just three wins in Chelsea's last 10 Premier League games.

After a rousing and emotional minute's applause for former player and assistant manager Ray Wilkins, who passed away this week, the hosts started in dominant mood. "When you play the big teams you need your keeper to play well and he did that". Get the app and get the game.

And Evra, a man who transcends football, came on to chants of "I love this game" from West Ham supporters and delivered an energetic, disciplined display on the left hand side of defence.
