Chelsea takes 10-point lead; Hazard, Costa score vs West Ham

Chelsea and Darren Randolph

It took him a while to settle at Stamford Bridge, but the former Barcelona man is looking the business under Antonio Conte this season.

The hosts somehow escaped falling two behind in the 42nd minute when Diego Costa missed his kick from Hazard's low cross, Moses saw his follow-up bravely blocked by Aaron Creswell and Randolph saved from Pedro on the rebound.

But his best contribution was defensively as he blocked Sofiane Feghouli's shot in the second half from crossing the line. Diafra Sakho (back) and Angelo Ogbonna (knee) are the only injury absentees in the West Ham squad.

Chelsea's chances of avenging their EFL cup defeat tonight goes for (1.60), while the two sides are expected to share the spoils after normal regulation period at a price of (4.03). 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.

Kante, though, raced past the West Ham duo, stopped the ball before it crept out of play and managed to set up another attack before half-time.

It summed up the night as Chelsea seemed to always be able to get their blow in first.

"We have been linked with many players in the last three transfer windows, including Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic", he said.

The winger received a second yellow card for deliberate handball against Watford and will sit out Monday's clash. "The last game against West Ham was an exception".

Cliney, Cuevas-Moore and Kaela Davis were the catalysts as the Gamecocks kept the pressure on through the remainder of the game. With Alaina Coates out injured, she was able to get plenty of lay-ups and put backs during the Bulldogs third quarter run.

Without him, the home side looked list-less for long periods and surrendered without putting up much of a fight.

Chelsea's midfielder was here, there and everywhere.

"You have to give your best because you can drop any points at any time in the Premier League".

The match will take place at the London Olympic Stadium in Stratford.

It was his quick interception that sparked Chelsea's thrilling break for their opening goal.

Eden Hazard scored a fabulous solo goal in the first half to put the visitors ahead, though there was a hairy moment during the celebration as he was angrily confronted by a Hammers fan.

"The other challenge is that Conte went from managing his country at Euro 2016 to immediately taking up his post at Chelsea, so there was no time for respite".
