Within three minutes of coming on as a second-half substitute, Javier Hernandez swept in an equaliser to snatch a point for West Ham.

The resultant set-piece led to the opener, which Cesar Azpilicueta converted after good close control for a poke finish on 36 minutes, 1-0.

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. Since my first day right here, they've supported me properly. Fans of both clubs also stood up to applause in the eighth minute while singing, "There's only one Ray Wilkins".

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. With the West Ham defenders fearfully backed off, the Belgian danced through the middle of the pitch and pulled the trigger, only for his low drive to flash inches wide of the post.

The Hammers were indebted to Hart for their derby point after the England worldwide made two marvellous saves late on.

"I think we begged".

"We could have done better, of course, we gave them a gift, it was the first clear chance they had and they scored". "About what? I like to continue to say "we need to continue to work and improve", but you must win this game if you want to reach a target", the Italian replied when asked about finishing in the top four. A phenomenal recovery challenge from N'Golo Kante prevented the goal - and led to a fizzing shot from Hazard on the break within 15 seconds.

"It's another result which isn't positive because we are talking about a draw. I thought I saw a definite movement with his knee towards Jack".

"Whether it was a penalty or not, we didn't get it. Now we hope to keep this going". The brittleness that has crept into their performances was evident once again on Sunday, when Chelsea's vibrant attacking performance coupled with defensive solidity should have put them out of West Ham's reach.

'I'm very focused on West Ham at the moment, that's my job and that's what I'm here to do, to fight for this team, ' he added.

Next up for West Ham is a vital home game against Stoke City next Monday, and a win there could be enough to secure their Premier League status for another season.
