Aaron Cresswell eased the pressure on Manuel Pellegrini with a second-half winner to give his side an unlikely London derby victory at Chelsea.
The left-back cut in from Pablo Fornals’ 48th-minute pass to bend in a wonderful goal as West Ham won for the first time
in over two months.
West Ham were denied a second when Michail Antonio was adjudged by VAR to have handled when he converted Robert
Snodgrass’ cross on the line.
