Chelsea were booed off at full-time and, asked if they could still make the top four, Conte said: "I don't know".

Fellow Ireland U21 worldwide Josh Cullen made his second Premier League appearance this season off the bench against Chelsea yesterday, his third in total.

A second-half goal from Javier Hernandez helped West Ham claim a point at Stamford Bridge, with the result taking the club six points clear of safety in the Premier League table.

Marko Arnautovic had squandered a chance to level But Javier Chicarito's equaliser with 17 minutes to go ensured a tangible reward for the Hammers' defensive solidity.

For West Ham, it was a valuable point in their fight to beat the drop, with a sizable advantage now over the bottom three.

"Sometimes when we play away from home you seem to get that bigger input; we did from the West Ham fans perhaps for some of the game today".

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