It’s no secret that the Hammers were strong underdogs travelling to Stamford Bridge today, yet Premier League fans stood surprised as Manuel Pellegrini’s team upset the odds and beat Frank Lampard’s Chelsea 1-0 ending a seven-game winless streak.

The Blues started with the key opening chances despite top goalscorer Tammy Abraham being sidelined, it did however show. Pedro and Reece James troubled Premier League debutant David Martin in-between the sticks with looping crosses, yet lone striker Olivier Giroud was unable to connect.

Chelsea’s superb passing continued to pressure the away side, but they were unable to punish, with Reece James’ deflected cross hitting the outside of the post and Zouma heading just over from the following corner. West Ham’s notable chance early doors was through Michail Antonio, whose header failed to trouble Spaniard Kepa Arrizabalaga.

From this the Irons really grew into the game, with the away support strongly behind them they responded with a spark of magic going into the second 45. West Ham’s wing-play finally paid off, with Fornals switching it to left-back Aaron Cresswell who cuts inside brilliantly past Cesar Azpilicueta and smashes it to the far corner of the goal.

Antonio missed a massive chance to make it two at 60 minutes and would later have a goal correctly disallowed for handball, it wouldn’t have affected the result however as they gain a vital win and move to 13th in the league.

Here are four findings from the match.
