Courtois returns for Conte's side in derby date with West Ham

Courtois returns for Conte's side in derby date with West Ham”

Tottenham won their first game at the west London club since 1990 last weekend after goals from Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli sealed a 3-1 win over Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

Chelsea welcomes one of their London rivals to Stamford Bridge on Sunday at West Ham visits for a Premier League match.

Chelsea took a deserved lead through Cesar Azpilicueta on 36 minutes and mustered 23 efforts on the West Ham goal, but a combination of poor finishing and inspired goalkeeping from Joe Hart ensured the game was still close when Hernandez replaced Gelson Fernandes with 20 minutes remaining.

Moyes' side moved five points clear of the drop zone after the morale-boosting win against Southampton.

Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 11 Premier League home matches against West Ham (W8, D3).

"Chelsea have to put a show on for their fans after last week against Tottenham". "Football is simple: If you score, you win".

Hazard was at his mesmerising best after just four minutes, weaving past a host of Hammers players before flashing a shot agonisingly wide of Hart's right-hand post.

In the 24 minute Alvaro Morata found the back of the net for Chelsea, but his goal was disallowed due to him being an off-sides position.

"The FA Cup is a massive trophy with a lot of history but it's not enough for us", the 28-year-old Spanish defender told BBC Match of the Day.

Victor Moses, left unmarked by West Ham's ponderous defence, scooped a cross towards Morata and he headed down to Azpilicueta, who controlled before poking a soft shot past Hart for his first goal since October. The result has seen him being directly involved in 16 of Chelsea's 53 goals (30%) and enhance his reputation even further despite Chelsea's overall decline.

Moyes went to his bench and brought on Hernandez, who took just three minutes to make his mark.

It was only West Ham's third touch inside the Chelsea's penalty area.
