Slaven Bilic raves about West Ham's Javier Hernandez

Slaven Bilic raves about West Ham's Javier Hernandez

And but for a combination of profligate finishing and excellent goalkeeping from West Ham keeper Joe Hart - on loan from league leaders Manchester City - the Blues would have realised that aim.

But it was entirely fitting, therefore, that an Englishman should steal the show.

On a day where the dreadfully sad passing of former Chelsea captain Ray Wilkins rightly took centre stage, the side he captained and coached looked to give him a final parting gift of three points.

A move from a corner saw Morata nod the ball back across goal for fellow Spaniard Cesar Azpilicueta to tap in, though West Ham's defending left a lot to be desired.

"At the time I thought there was a bit on the ball".

Javier Hernandez salvaged a priceless point for West Ham in their battle to avoid the drop, after coming on as a substitute.

The victory stretches Arsenal's winning streak in all competitions to six successive matches and lifts them to 54 points, three behind Chelsea, who in turn trail Tottenham in fourth by ten points.

West Ham's sporadic attacks were however Moore unsafe, and restored to the side skipper Gary Cahill had to be at his very best to thwart Marko Anoutovic, on 15 minutes. "For me, as a youngster, it's all I ever knew, living 10 minutes from the training ground and going to loads of the games".

Chelsea weren't able to capitalise on a Liverpool draw in the Merseyside derby.

Hazard linked up cleverly with Willian, the Brazilian bringing a good save from Joe Hart. On this form, you wouldn't bet against him adding to his 75 caps this summer.

However, as Chelsea surrendered yet another one-goal lead, they had to settle for a rather stale 1-1 draw with West Ham.

Victor Moses and then Morata squandered decent openings, before the latter scored another offside goal. Fabregas's low pass through the middle found Hazard yet again, and for the umpteenth time he played a lovely one-two with Morata before feeding Willian. West Ham had mustered two touches in the opposition box prior to Javier Hernandez's strike, but Gary Cahill - on his return to the Chelsea team in place of Andreas Christensen - failed to cover himself in glory.

In a wild last few minutes Mohamed Elneny and Southampton's Jack Stephens were sent off in separate incidents.
