  • David Moyes Manager of West Ham United looks on prior to the Premier League match between West Ham United and Southampton at London Stadium

Javier Hernandez's goal - coupled with a fine performance between the sticks from Joe Hart - got West Ham out of there with a precious share of the spoils.

But it was entirely fitting, therefore, that an Englishman should steal the show.

West Ham went into the game having lost all three of their Sunday Premier League games this season by an 8-1 aggregate, but Hart's flying saves ensured that disastrous pattern would not continue at Stamford Bridge.

A Hazard-inspired move should have seen Chelsea take the lad on 28 minutes bu Morata tried an audacious back flick they typically missed. David Moyes' West Ham meanwhile are now six points clear of the relegation zone.

"At the time I thought there was a bit on the ball".

Chelsea legend Clive Walker believes the Blues' fans need to up their game to help the side at Stamford Bridge, noting that West Ham United's supporters rose to the occasion.

Southampton's defeat kept them in the bottom three, three points behind Crystal Palace but with a game in hand.

And even though that performance will have done his chances of securing a place in Gareth Southgate's squad, if not starting XI, no harm, Hart was adamant his focus sits exclusively on helping West Ham maintain their Premier League status.


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.Morata has endured a hard first year with Chelsea and his fortunes weren't improving as he headed over from a corner before having another effort disallowed for offside. "I'm not sure it's going to add to our game, but it's not up to me".

Chelsea weren't able to capitalise on a Liverpool draw in the Merseyside derby.

Joe Hart, who is still fighting for a place as England's number 1, produced a top-drawer save to deny Marcos Alonso in the 79th minute.

"I love being part of that England squad and that'll never change", he said this week. I'd watched clips and obviously I know how Eden Hazard plays and how Willian plays, but you can't really tell off a video until you face them in real life as you come up against different challenges.

West Ham United's Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez celebrates his goal at Chelsea with teammate Marko Arnautovic.

Then, the bolt from the claret and blue.

They need to hope for either Tottenham or Liverpool to make a few mistakes along the way, but I would be more anxious about Chelsea's performance.

The London-born 19-year-old's star continues to rise through a whirlwind few months.
