Conte: Hammers draw sums up Chelsea's campaign

Former West Ham United forward Tony Cottee claims that the Hammers were fortunate to claim a 1-1 draw against Chelsea in Sunday's Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge.

Wilkins died at the age of 61 after suffering a cardiac arrest. With six games remaining, Chelsea has fallen 10 points behind fourth-place Tottenham.

West Ham are now six points away from the drop zone on 34 points.

Moyes had special praise for striker Hernandez and goalkeeper Joe Hart. We must win this game.

West Ham United return to Premier League action on Monday, April 16 when Stoke City are the visitors to the London Stadium (8pm).

After an earlier a pre-match tribute, the stadium rose in the eighth minute to acclaim their former number eight Wilkins.

Andreas Christensen is handed a rest, amid a testing breakthrough campaign for him at Stamford Bridge, while Alvaro Morata once again leads the line. All of us wish to play greater than 20 minutes.

Exploiting the space behind Cheikhou Kouyate, Hazard fashioned a series of chances for the Blues to wrap things up before the break.

Willian then twice came close to giving his side the lead.


The Spaniard had two goals disallowed for offside and Hazard was unfortunate to be denied a late victor by Hart's excellent positioning.

Antonio Conte's side had dominated most of the game, cutting through a soft West Ham midfield seemingly at will, but failed to add to Cesar Azpilicueta's first-half strike before David Moyes's game-changing substitution. We create a lot of chances but we can not take them. How many times have I said that we didn't take the chances we created?

But after a "bonus" game, now comes possibly the game of the season at home to Stoke. "But I repeat, this game explains our season".

"We will fight and give everything for the three points which would help us get out of the relegation fight completely". We were playing against a team who are quality and have some terrific attacking players who played well. We begged for the goal, ' he told Sky Sports after the match.

Irish global Long's goal was only his second in nearly 50 games for club and country but even before that the visitors made all the chances.

Willian had a fierce drive diverted behind before Morata saw a goal ruled out after straying into an offside position to receive Hazard's incisive pass.

"When we came in, we asked everybody to show us what you can do".

"Arnie got in around the back and set it back for him and Chicha, with his striker's instinct, pulled off and found a great finish into the corner past a few bodies and the West Ham fans went insane".

Even still though, Chelsea spend way more money, they are defending Premier League champions and by all means should be making light work of the Hammers, especially at home.
