Javier Hernandez equaliser dents Chelsea's Champions League hopes

West Ham winger Michail Antonio out rest of season with hamstring injury

Asked where the result leaves Chelsea's aspirations for a top-four finish, Conte replied: "We must be realistic".

West Ham could are still without injured midfielder Manuel Lanzini because of a knee injury and defender James Collins is out with a hamstring problem.

But Javier Hernandez stepped off the bench to drag the Irons back on level terms with 17 minutes remaining and Joe Hart made a fine save to deny substitute Olivier Giroud a late victor.

Moyes' side moved five points clear of the drop zone after the morale-boosting win against Southampton.

Marko Arnautovic was once more the catalyst for much of West Ham's positivity this season, picking up two goals that saw them take a 3 goal lead into the break.

His goal had goalkeeper Joe Hart, himself a star on Sunday, praising the diminutive striker for his desire following an global call-up on the other side of the ocean.

The unexpected passing of Ray Wilkins earlier this week will add a sombre undertone to proceedings at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.




Chelsea FC are in fifth place in the Premier League table and eight points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham.

In the 51st minute, Moses was presented with a big chance to put Chelsea two goals up from Morata's pass but blasted over the bar.

Blues skipper Gary Cahill's weak headed clearance was pounced on by Arnautovic, who cut the ball back for Hernandez to sweep the ball first time past Courtois for his eighth goal of the season.

When all is said and done at the end of Javier Hernandez's career it will be criminal if he isn't included in the same discussion as Ole Gunnar Solskjær as the Premier League's greatest-ever super sub.

Chelsea face Southampton next Sunday in their FA Cup semi-final at Wembley Stadium but even if they were to go on and win the competition, it would be scant consolation in the eyes of Azpilicueta.

The Brazilian has been Chelsea's best player this season and he deserves more than the Europa League next term.

Antonio Conte's first game in charge of Chelsea was a 2-1 home win against West Ham in August 2016.
