Javier Hernandez earns West Ham valuable point at Chelsea

Thibaut Courtois

A second-half equaliser from Javier Hernandez earned the Hammers a 1-1 draw against the defending league champions at Stamford Bridge as Rice made his first start against his former club after he was released by the Chelsea Academy at the age of 14.

Chelsea had 21 chances to West Ham's four but in truth this was a poor advertisement for top flight football. The Blues now need to make up a deficit of 10 points with only six games remaining. The Italian shared the frustration of home supporters who booed at the final whistle and he blamed a failure to convert chances for not extending the advantage when leading 1-0.

"I think in the second half we (could) finish the game (off)". I think that was the first chance they have'. Then we concede two shots and concede a goal.

"This season we have struggled and this game describes our season".

Welbeck's victor came nine minutes from time, but there was still plenty of action to unfold at the Emirates as first Saints centre-back Jack Stephens and then Arsenal's Mohamed Elneny were sent off for separate incidents. "When you stay in this position in the table, it means that you have a problem".

'We're moving in the right direction, ' said goalkeeper Hart.

In contrast, West Ham were buoyant after snatching a draw that had not seemed remotely likely until substitute Hernandez popped up to score soon after coming on.

"I was thrilled to get in at half-time just a goal down", Moyes said.

"Thankfully we stuck at it and got something out of it".

"If we perform to the best of our ability and give a good account of themselves, you never know", Hart told the club's official website ahead of the encounter.

Moyes also paid tribute to Hernandez and England global goalkeeper Joe Hart.

A searching pass into the box from Mark Noble was poorly headed away by Gary Cahill, allowing Arnautovic to pick up the loose ball and cut it back to Javier Hernandez. He's had a great career.

The Blues played admirably well, and the away side wouldn't have seized the valuable point if it wasn't for Joe Hart's brilliant display of saves, although the result stung a bit for the hosts.

Fortunately for the East London side, the bottom three teams are in bad form with fewer games to play.
