Chelsea got on their feet with the first victory against a team from the top 10


Chelsea beat West Ham 3-0 and are now in fifth place in the Premier League. Frank Lampard`s team has an equal number of points with Tottenham (25) and is 6 points behind the leader Liverpool. The London derby was equal for the most part, but Chelsea took the lead early with a goal by Thiago Silva, and in the last quarter of an hour two goals by Tammy Abraham decided everything. This was the first victory for the `blues` against a rival from the top 10 of the standings this season. West Ham missed their chances at the beginning of the second half and suffered a fifth defeat of the season, which left the team in the middle of the table with 21 points.

Olivier Giroud was on the Chelsea bench, with Tammy Abraham, Timo Werner and Kristin Pulisic in the lead. The three midfielders were Mason Mount, N `Golo Cante and Jorgeninho, and the defense against Edward Mendy was composed of Cesar Aspilicueta, Thiago Silva, Kurt Zuma and Ben Chillwell. Apart from Giroud, two other players, who were starters in the loss to Wolverhampton (1:2), were absent this time. Kai Havertz was the reserve, and Reese James was deprived of the group for the match.

West Ham manager David Moyes had taken only one cast against the home draw against Crystal Palace. Fan favorite Mark Noble took the place of Said Banrama and together with Jarod Boeun and Pablo Fornals had to help central striker Sebastian Ale. A pair of inside midfielders were Declan Rice and Thomas Sucek. The Hammers were without the injured Michael Antonio, Arthur Masuaku and Manuel Lansini.

Mason Mount became the youngest English footballer with 50 games for the Blues since legend John Terry did in 2002. It was the technical midfielder who was the strongest player of the hosts. In the first minutes, West Ham twice caught up with Chelsea`s defense. In one case, Declan Rice overcame Mandy and sent the ball into the goal from a small angle, but his goal was canceled due to a thin ambush. Born Ben Chillwell was injured and had to be replaced, and was replaced by Emerson. Immediately after the substitution, Chelsea took the lead in the result. Mount cross from a corner, and veteran Thiago Silva placed excellently in the penalty area and headed the ball under the crossbar. This was the eighth goal of the `blues` from a static position and according to this indicator they are ?1 in the Premier League. In the 14th minute Mason Mount centered sharply, but Werner was late to intercept his pass. Chelsea definitely dominated and were looking for a second goal. Aspilicueta`s mistake could have led to problems for the hosts, but Aaron Creswell did not find a teammate on the far post.

In the 27th minute Zuma intervened well after a header by Sebastian Ale and took a corner, and then Sucek shot similarly in the out. At the very end of the half, Timo Werner had an excellent opportunity to bring Chelsea closer to victory, but the German national squandered it. He was taken out by Pulisic, but his shot was saved by Lukasz Fabianski. After the break, Chelsea pulled back a lot, and West Ham was the team that held the ball and looked for gaps in the opponent`s defense. In the 4th minute Bowen centered to Ale, but the ball came a little high for the Frenchman and he could not direct it in the outline of
