Slaven Bilic slams two players during Chelsea vs West Ham

Slaven Bilic slams two players during Chelsea vs West Ham

Javier Hernandez's second-half equaliser boosted West Ham's Premier League survival prospects and damaged Chelsea's slim hopes of finishing in the top four on an emotional day at Stamford Bridge.

Thibaut Courtois is fit to start in goal, so Willy Caballero is a substitute. That he did so against his former manager who had disrespected him during their former meeting made it even sweeter for the Austrian forward.

Midfielder Manuel Lanzini also looks set to miss Sunday's trip to Chelsea with the knee injury he suffered on global duty with Argentina. Hazard has been given plenty of freedom in Chelsea's side this season, either in a floating position behind the main striker or as a focal point in attack for Conte's side.

With six games left, Chelsea can still mathematically reach the Champions League, although that would require a collapse from both Liverpool (who have five games remaining) and Tottenham (who have six games to play).

His goal had goalkeeper Joe Hart, himself a star on Sunday, praising the diminutive striker for his desire following an global call-up on the other side of the ocean.

Chelsea went into this game unbeaten in their last 11 home Premier League games against West Ham since a 2-3 defeat in 2002.

Guy Mowbray: "There'll be a sombre mood before kick-off, as Stamford Bridge mourns the passing of a favourite son".

Blues skipper Gary Cahill's weak headed clearance was pounced on by Arnautovic, who cut the ball back for Hernandez to sweep the ball first time past Courtois for his eighth goal of the season.

"Chelsea have to put a show on for their fans after last week against Tottenham". We have to hope we catch them on an off-day and we perform well.

While this competition for a place in the team should push each player to higher standards, it's failed to do this yet.

"They tell me last season he had very few injuries, but he picked up one at the end of the season with his hamstring and he's never really recovered from that".

Here are the biggest winners and losers from this evening's match between the sides.

Eden Hazard and Willian were in mesmeric form from the outset and led the Hammers' defence a merry dance throughout, but Chelsea's dominance was not reflected in the scoreline, with Joe Hart enjoying a fine game in West Ham's goal.
