'Sure bet' Chelsea transfer being eyed as part of fanciful double deal claim

Chelsea V West Ham United Premier League

Chelsea were left to rue those missed opportunities on 73 minutes when Hernandez, on for Edimilson Fernandes three minutes earlier, met Arnautovic's pass to slot the ball past Thibaut Courtois. Willian should have doubled the advantage in the hosts' first foray forward of the second period, collecting from the Belgian's backheel to shimmy inside Mark Noble only to drag a shot wide of the far post.

The Hammers were indebted to Hart for their derby point after the England international made two marvellous saves late on.

With four minutes left in the game, Arnautovic almost won it for West Ham as he raced towards goal but was stopped by a superb tackle by N'Golo Kante.

They haven't had much to be enthusiastic about this season as Chelsea continue their trend of falling of the pace the season after they win the Premier League. On the other hand, it was Tottenham's first game of the season at Wembley. But the fact remains, Conte has presided over just three wins in Chelsea's last 10 Premier League games.

Chelsea's manager Antonio Conte reacts during the match against West Ham United at Stamford Bridge in London April 8, 2018. The Chelsea fans taunted him with chants of 'England's No.4' but it was Hart who had the last laugh. Willian to score one and assist another for Morata. Joe Hart, that's why he has so many caps and medals at the top level. Subs: Evra 5, Hernandez 7, Cullen 5.

A near full house of 41,324 all rose to give deceased Ray Wilkins a tremendous applause prior to kick off. Starting the game wide on the right he was soon moved infield to let Hector Bellerin raid down the right wing. A scrappy corner, which had caught the Hammers' defenders napping, fell to Azpilicueta, who poked into the gaping net from a matter of yards. Nelson picks up a rebound on the edge of the box and back heels it crisply to Elneny who tees up Xhaka - but the shot is just pushed around the post. The Spaniard pokes the ball home at the second attempt. Victor Moses and then Morata squandered decent openings, before the latter scored another offside goal. "This is very important for me, for my staff and for the players, also because the supporters deserve at least this". Defensively, Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen are now regulars alongside Cesar Azpilicueta.

West Ham's own threat had been sporadic, and invariably conjured by Arnautovic. Instead, it proved to be an inspiration for a side who helped themselves to a feast of attacking football. The Austrian cuts it back to Hernandez and he slams it home. Giroud dummies Willian's path into Alonso. "It won't be easy, we have to be realistic, but at the same time we have to give all of ourselves".
