Conte says West Ham draw sums up Chelsea's season

Declan Rice of West Ham United celebrates his side's win following the Carabao Cup Fourth Round match between Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United at Wembley Stadium

The result means Chelsea are now a whopping 10 points behind Tottenham in fourth, while West Ham move six points clear of the relegation zone. All of us wish to play greater than 20 minutes. They switched off. They can not defend it, they can not defend it, especially in a game that wasn't the greatest game. It was end-to-end stuff at this stage and it looked as though N'Golo Kante had executed a brilliant last-ditch tackle to thwart Arnautovic when he was bearing down on goal but after seeing replays, the Frenchman went through the man to play the ball. You must win this game.

Hernandez believes the hard-earned point at Chelsea, on top of the big win over Southampton the previous weekend, will send the Hammers into their relegation showdown with Stoke next Monday with bags of confidence.

"We have gone through a hard spell, but because the players are proud we came back".

Hart made a fine first-half block to deny Willian when he was clean through, and after the break tipped Marcos Alonso's fierce drive over the top before palming Olivier Giroud's header around a post to preserve a point for his side.

West Ham United and Republic of Ireland defender Declan Rice has said that he was delighted to make a statement against his former youth side Chelsea on Sunday. Having limped out of the Champions League to a far stronger Barcelona side, Chelsea returned to the Premiership in forgettable fashion.




And he hopes a late season return to form could help force his way into England's World Cup squad.

Shane Long took advantage of a comical mix-up between Petr Cech and Shkodran Mustafi to put the visitors in front early on.

They need to hope for either Tottenham or Liverpool to make a few mistakes along the way, but I would be more anxious about Chelsea's performance. A succession of corners got the away fans on their feet, although West Ham's newfound confidence left them open to the counter as the game became seriously stretched. Patrice Evra came in and did a very good job off the bench.

Saints' Jack Stephens and Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny were then both sent-off as Southampton's frustration boiled over in the closing stages as they remain three points adrift of safety.
