Chelsea Confirmed Lineup vs West Ham United: Courtois returns; Morata upfront

Chelsea failed to take advantage of Liverpool's goalless draw in the Merseyside derby on Saturday as they are held to a 1-1 draw by West Ham United at Stamford Bridge.

Conte s side went ahead through Cesar Azpilicueta s first-half strike at Stamford Bridge.

With fifth-placed Chelsea lagging 10 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham with only six games remaining, this frustrating result should end their challenge to qualify for the Champions League. They create chances, they are ready to suffer and win the game.

"People were questioning whether he would come back and I believe what he has done is exceptional".

Moses had another chance on 69 minutes to get on the score sheet after cutting inside only to see his curler fly just past the post. He tipped over Marcos Alonso's shot on the turn from 18 yards out on 79 minutes and made a more routine save from Hazard's angled strike from the right seven minutes later. We are talking about improving, improving, improving. We are paying a lot this season for this type of situation. That he did so against his former manager who had disrespected him during their former meeting made it even sweeter for the Austrian forward. In the Carabao Cup, both were shown the door by fellow London teams. We're glad we could do that today to get this point.

David Moyes's side, meanwhile, can see the relegation zone as more of a dim, ugly mirage with every point they accrue in this tightest of battles in the bottom half of the Premier... Javier Hernandez came off the bench to score the equalizer for the Hammers to cap off a memorable night for the visitors.

The former England midfielder, who played for Chelsea for six years in the 1970s and had several spells as the club's assistant coach, was remembered by fans who laid flowers outside the stadium.

There was also a minute's applause prior to kick-off, with the Chelsea players wearing black armbands in memory of Wilkins. The goal we lose is dire.

Willian was inches away from doubling Chelsea's lead early in the second half after Hazard's clever back-heel gave the Brazilian space to shoot just wide. It was the only in the 82 minute when an own goal by substitute Michy Batshuayi bought Tottenham back in the game.

Morata has endured a difficult first year with Chelsea and his fortunes weren t improving as he headed over from a corner before having another effort disallowed for offside.

All those near-misses came back to haunt Chelsea in the 73rd minute.

Cahill's header from Noble's punt into the box was indecisive, neither a pass to a team-mate or a clearance, with Arnautovic quick to tear on to the loose ball and pull back his centre.
