Conte had conceded losing at home to Tottenham Hotspur for the first time in 28 years last weekend was a huge setback in Chelsea's bid to salvage a dismal campaign by qualifying for the Uefa Champions League.

This undefeated chain remains intact today, but it hasn't helped the Blues. West Ham, meanwhile, moved six points clear.

Cesar Azpilicueta had given Chelsea the lead in he first half, attacking a loose ball in the six yard box with the help of some bad defending on West Ham's part.

The Hammers have become something of a bogey side for Chelsea in recent years but this match could serve to re-address the balance back in favour of the Blues.

West Ham, who had been much improved in beating Southampton 3-0 a week ago, offered little until Hernandez's intervention soon after coming on.

The Scottish midfielder, who now plays for Fulham, has been one of the standout talents in the Championship this campaign. The next game is Chelsea and we have to try and pick up points in that. "They are the champions, let's not forget".

Chinese Space station plummeting to Earth
The space station, about the size of a 18,000-pound school bus, is spinning out of control and hurling toward Earth. For a brief time, Tiangong-1 supported two successful missions that included China's first female astronauts.

The Mexican whipped home a fine strike just four minutes after stepping off the bench to secure a precious point in the Hammers' fight for survival.

In the 51st minute, Moses was presented with a big chance to put Chelsea two goals up from Morata's pass but blasted over the bar. David Moyes, too, is a manager with question marks shrouding his post-summer future and a win for either will go a long way towards adding gloss to their suffering reputations.

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

This is probably not his fault as his side worked doggedly to get back on the front foot, and he would probably get the benefit of the doubt were it earlier in the season.

The Hammers will be buoyed by their win over Saints last time out, but do I think they have got enough to go to Stamford Bridge and come away unbeaten?
