Hart focused on West Ham, not England

Hart focused on West Ham, not England

Chelsea dominated the game from start to finish, but were unable to make the game safe despite outshooting West Ham 5-to-1.

Antonio Conte's side took the lead in the first half through Cesar Azpilicueta, but Javier Hernandez ensured that the Hammers would be leaving with a share of the points with a goal in the second half, helping his team's relegation worries but ensuring that it would be another frustrating afternoon for the hosts. 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 terrible defending on West Ham's part.

There was also a minute's applause prior to kick-off, with the Chelsea players wearing black armbands in memory of Wilkins. And so it was again today, even with five extra minutes to play. Marko Arnautovic leads the line for the visitors.

In the 24 minute Alvaro Morata found the back of the net for Chelsea, but his goal was disallowed due to him being an off-sides position.

Early in the second half, Willian came close to securing a second from the edge of the box but saw his shot go wide of goal.

West Ham were nearly pegged back again on 79 minutes as Marcos Alonso fired a long range effort but Joe Hart produced a brilliant save to deny the Spanish defender.

Conte's side threw everything forward in search of a victor, but found Hart in inspired form.

David Moyes has now failed to win any of his last 30 away Premier League matches against the big six teams (D10 L20) since a 2-1 win at Man City as Everton manager in December 2010.

Marcos Alonso nearly spared Chelsea's blushes with a thunderous strike, but Hart finished as West Ham's hero with superb saves to keep out that effort and one from an Olivier Giroud header.

But Cairney's visit to Stamford Bridge is sure to only increase speculation that he could move to the London Stadium, ahead of the summer transfer window.

It was the fourth time the former Manchester United appeared as a substitute at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League, scoring in all four of those.
