Chelsea ease to win at West Ham

Chelsea ease to win at West Ham

Andy Carroll is set to replace Michail Antonio in West Ham's squad, with their top scorer suspended for this match following his red card at Watford last weekend.

"I'm pleased for him, he deserves it and nobody gifted him anything". The team conceded nine goals in two games with Manchester City, five goals against Arsenal and two goals against Manchester United since December previous year. "They still think they have a chance to catch Chelsea if Chelsea slip, and they can slip in every game".

Stewards had just one major incident to deal with on Monday night as a supporter climbed over the hoardings to confront Chelsea's celebrating players after Eden Hazard's opening goal. Perhaps more importantly, now the feeling of diffidence and gloom that had surrounded the team early on in the season has dissipated a bit and they are sitting ninth on 33 points, which can be considered par for this team, despite a slightly over achieving last season.

Chelsea are a club with a secure and bright future, while the other giants of London are in turmoil as they risk losing Alexis, Mesut Ozil and Wenger this summer.

Hammers playmaker Lanzini made a similarly darting run towards a more well-manned Chelsea defence but blazed over after a one-two with Noble.

Chelsea are ruthlessly efficient, but not in an ugly way.

It has been far from a stellar season for the Hammers, especially at the beginning, but Slaven Bilić'sside have picked up the pace in the last few weeks and months and will look to finish as strongly as possible.

Andy Murray: world No. 1 has chance at title in Dubai Championships
Murray, 29, claimed the trophy in the emirate after finishing runner-up to Roger Federer in 2012. It was obviously a really hard final to win, but I came trying everything and giving everything.

"N'Golo (Kante) got the ball and passed to me and I pass to Pedro and give me back, so it is a good goal". "In the last away game, the way we played against Burnley, we drew".

But Chelsea had their second within five minutes of the restart as Pedro Obiang could only glance on Cesc Fabregas' corner for Costa to bundle in from close range.

N'Golo Kante is the favourite to be named PFA Player of the Year and the diminutive midfielder put in another barnstorming display in Chelsea's 2-1 victory over West Ham.

Pretty simple stuff, but effective in both instances.

With England manager Gareth Southgate at the London Stadium to watch this game ahead of the March 16 announcement of his squad for the friendly against Germany later this month, Carroll had the flawless opportunity to impress.

If Carroll is fit to play - as we expect - and if Chelsea don't watch him closely, he'll be jumping with Azpilicueta as often as he can. West Ham conceded poor goals.
