Chelsea dominated the game from start to finish, but were unable to make the game safe despite outshooting West Ham 5-to-1. They took the lead at 36′ when Ceser Azpilicueta (Chelsea) got a rebound inside the box but was equallized at 73′ by Chicharito (West ham).
It was astonishing when Chelsea-killer Javier Chicharito Hernandez arrived onto the scene and within few minutes, he scored his 9th goal against the Blues in 14 appearances to equalize. it was almost expected and it came to be. No lead more dangerous than a 1-0, and Chelsea were made to pay for that again, as we have been many times this season.
The entire season has really been wasteful at one end, with crucial mistake(s) at the other, and unable to recover or turn things around for the good. And so it was again today, even with five extra minutes to play.
Chelsea huffed and Chelsea puffed and missed a few more chances (and Kanté made a goal-saving tackle at the other end) and then it was the referee’s whistle to bring another sad end to proceedings at Stamford Bridge. No Diego Costa to win it at the end this time, just like what happened when he was around last year.
Six points is the margin that West Ham now boast over the relegation zone and last weekend’s win at Southampton looks to have been a turning point. The Hammers seems to look good on their current form and look to be just a couple more wins away from securing their Premier League status, raising the importance of next weekend’s clash with second-bottom Stoke.
Another sad day at Stamford Bridge though two goals were suprisingly disallowed by the referees. Antonio C’s tactics is becoming questionable. He never replaces a weak player at the appropriate time.
Chelsea fc’s manager Antonio Conte‘ has been getting it all wrong lately and this will push the club for another manager. What a bad outing!.
