Hernandez faints Chelsea's top-4 dream in Premier League

TURIN ITALY- APRIL 03 Juan Cuadrado of Juventus FC is challenged by Mateo Kovacic of Real Madrid during the UEFA Champions League Quarter Final Leg One match between Juventus and Real Madrid at Allianz Stadium

"We have a point and now we have a final against Stoke next week".

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.

"I don't think I need to prove anything, but today I felt I came back and made a statement and I was happy with my performance".

Eden Hazard and Willian were in mesmeric form from the outset and led the Hammers' defence a merry dance throughout, but Chelsea's dominance was not reflected in the scoreline, with Joe Hart enjoying a fine game in West Ham's goal.

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. We've seen it time and time again this season, and it's the reason why we will not be playing Champions League football next season.

But after Alvaro Morata had two goals ruled out for offside, Javier Hernandez equalised for the Hammers.

Our dream is to see a prosperous Nepal: PM Oli
This will enable cost effective and efficient movement of cargo and greatly impact the growth of business and economy of Nepal. While speaking to mediapersons, PM Oli said friendship is most important and there is no comparison with friendship.

By contrast, Chelsea have now won just one of their last five Premier League matches, a slump in form that nearly certainly means they will fail to catch Tottenham for the fourth Champions League qualifying spot, with just six league matches remaining. Marko Arnautovic then had West Ham's first chance from Arthur Masuaku's beautifully weighted ball over the top. I don't understand why after 1-0 we always drop and let the opponent get more ball possession.

'I think in the second half we can finish the game.

"We did well in the first half apart from the goal which was really poor", Hart told Sky Sports.

"I'm just sorry to Chelsea fans!", said Hernandez. Thus, the clash represents a hugely important fixture for both sides; a win would ensure Moyes' side remain out of a survival scrap while defeat could drag them back into troubled water.

Many feel Liverpool have their top-four place pretty much sealed at this stage in the season, the lack of reaction to the Reds dropping points against Everton on Saturday underlines this.

Danny Welbeck's second goal of the game gave Arsenal a 3-2 win on Sunday and cost Southampton a draw they would have deserved in their struggle against relegation from the Premier League.
