Slaven Bilic raves about West Ham's Javier Hernandez

16 Abril, 2018

The Mexican striker was only introduced into the game three minutes before his goal, replacing Edimilson Fernandes.

Today Conte was unable to engineer a response to West Ham's equaliser in the second half.

"From where we are, I want to try and push on".

Chicharito has now scored nine goals against Chelsea in 14 matches.

For much of the first half, the east Londoners did look second best, with Chelsea seemingly more dangerous with every attack.

It was a 'crazy day' for Declan Rice at Stamford Bridge.

Key upsets were losing to West Ham and Crystal Palace away, along with drawing to West Ham at home on Sunday.

A move from a corner saw Morata nod the ball back across goal for fellow Spaniard Cesar Azpilicueta to tap in, though West Ham's defending left a lot to be desired.

They were made to pay for those misses when Hernandez expertly stroked home from Arnautovic's pull back to draw the Hammers level with 17 minutes remaining.

"We can create a lot of chances but we cannot take them".

West Ham are next in action when they host Stoke City on April 16.

It has been a whirlwind few weeks for Rice which have seen him make his senior international debut and play a starring role in Ireland u21's dramatic last-gasp win over Azerbaijan last month.

In denying Giroud, the 30-year-old Hart produced his third world-class save of the afternoon, having thwarted Willian from close range moments before Cesar Azpilicueta's opener and also tipping Marcos Alonso's fine drive over the bar.

On forwards potentially lacking confidence: "Morata scored two offside goals".

"At the time I thought there was a bit on the ball".

Hazard linked up cleverly with Willian, the Brazilian bringing a good save from Joe Hart.

While he didn't end up scoring in the game, he was a physical presence winning aerial duels against the West Ham defence.

Chelsea football club paid the perfect tribute to former player and assistant coach; Ray Wilkins, who passed away due to a cardiac arrest last Thursday. They shout my identify and sing my songs. The Arsenal coach has obviously told him to get more involved as he is very busy, looking for a chance to get in behind. We've still got some really tough games towards end of the season, but three points against Stoke will be crucial.

Javier Hernandez believes the club are moving in the right direction but has stressed the importance of retaining momentum after Sunday's result, with The Hammers unable to afford many slip-ups. Draws against teams at the bottom of the table won't help in qualifying for the Champions League.
