Victor Moses' Chelsea looking to bounce back against West Ham

Antonio Conte's first game in charge of Chelsea was a 2-1 home win against West Ham in August 2016.

West Ham United manager David Moyes is hopeful that his side are very close to staying in the Premier League.

Azpilicueta, whose first-half goal on Sunday was cancelled out by Javier Hernandez's equaliser in the second half, added: "To get a draw at home in another London derby is really frustrating for all of us and all of the fans".

Instead, Tottenham remained on level terms and grew into the final stages of the game where Dele Alli scored twice in 5 minutes to leave Chelsea with a fifth defeat from their last 7 league games.

Back in the groove, Hazard provided the impetus for another flowing Chelsea move that saw Willian's shot pushed over by West Ham goalkeeper Joe Hart.

Chelsea FC won the Premier League title with two games to spare last season after the Blues finish seven points clear of Tottenham.

West Ham sits in 14th place on the table with just 33 points through 31 games on the season. If you don't win games there's no top-four, it's easy'.

Lula claims the charges are politically motivated, and created to prevent him from running for president in October. Lula is still Brazil's most popular politician, despite his conviction and six separate pending corruption trials.

It was only a temporary reprieve for West Ham as Conte's men took a 36th-minute lead from the resulting short corner.

Hazard was at his mesmerising best after just four minutes, weaving past a host of Hammers players before flashing a shot agonisingly wide of Hart's right-hand post.

"It's a big game but I do fancy Chelsea".

Having found the first goal, the Blues maintained the momentum in a bid to double their lead before the referee would signal the end of the first half, but that didn't come as the first stanza of the encounter ended 1-0 in favour of the Blues.

Moyes insists Hart's showing was a timely reminder to Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate, who has until May 14 to give England's 35-man provisional squad to Federation Internationale de Football Association before whittling it down to 23 by June 4.

"Fair play to West Ham last week, to turn up in major pressure".
