Chelsea Pip West Ham In London Derby

Kai Havertz came off the bench to seal a much-needed victory for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, as the Blues came from behind to beat London rivals West Ham 2-1.


Thomas Tuchel’s team was booed off after failing to manage a single shot on target in a dismal first half and fell behind shortly after the hour when Antonio converted following a goalmouth scramble.

But Ben Chilwell poked past Lukasz Fabianski to level the scores with 15 minutes remaining, and Havertz was on hand to turn the full-back’s cross home to put the Blues ahead late on.

There was still time for Maxwell Cornet to see a fine strike disallowed for West Ham, but Chelsea ultimately held on to bounce back from Tuesday’s loss to Southampton after an enthralling match.

Chelsea needed 27 minutes to register a shot during a drab first-half performance as Christian Pulisic’s effort deflected away before Mateo Kovacic drilled a 25-yard effort wide.

That was the sum of the Blues’ efforts before the break, however, and West Ham almost hit the front on the hour when Edouard Mendy palmed Jarrod Bowen’s volley wide.
