It took Chelsea only four minutes to get back in front when Mount connected with a floated pass from Hakim Ziyech for a perfect volley that caught out Fabianski at his near post.

Masuaku turned the game West Ham’s way in the 87th minute when he caught out Mendy with what looked like a cross, but the ball flew into the top corner at the near post.
