Chelsea and West Ham have played three fixtures this season and each one of them have ended with a scoreline of 2-1.
The Hammers defeated the Blues in the EFL Cup, but Conte’s men completed the double over Bilic’s team last night.
Chelsea are absolutely devastating from the counter attack. Star attacking midfielder Eden Hazard opened the scoring for the visitors in the 25th minute of the game.
Spanish striker Diego Costa netted the second in the 50th minute. West Ham could only pull one goal back, that too very late in injury time thanks to Lanzini.
The victory means Chelsea are once again 10 points above their closest rivals in the Premier League. However, Man City can reduce the lead to 8 points if they beat Stoke City in the midweek.
Hazard was easily the best player of the match. The 26-year-old Belgian international was the star of the show, a huge threat on the counter and he absolutely tormented West Ham’s back line.
Praising the former Lille playmaker, Tottenham legend Gary Lineker reacted on twitter and stated:
Hazard is ridiculous.
