Chelsea 0-1 West Ham: Abraham-less Chelsea suffers shock home defeat

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.

Under-fire Pellegrini got his tactics spot on as he dropped beleaguered keeper Roberto with David Martin making his club debut.

But Martin had very little to do as Chelsea, without Tammy Abraham, delivered a flat performance.
