Antonio Conte says West Ham draw sums up Chelsea's season

  • David Moyes Manager of West Ham United looks on prior to the Premier League match between West Ham United and Southampton at London Stadium

The striker continued that run this time around too, netting in the 73rd minute with virtually his first touch since coming on to draw Moyes' men level.

West Ham's draw at Stamford Bridge leaves the Hammers six points clear of the relegation places with six games to play. It was his eighth goal of the season for West Ham, and second equalizer as a substitute.

Hart was needed, though, to salvage a point for the visitors as he made brilliant stops from Marcos Alonso and Olivier Giroud in the closing stages to do his hopes of starting for England at the World Cup no harm.

"I think we begged for the goal, and in the second half, or even in the first half we could have finished the game, but like the last few months we couldn't, and we conceded at the end", he told Sky Sports News.

There was an emotional tribute before the game, and after eight minutes of play, to Ray Wilkins, the former Chelsea captain and assistant manager, who died in midweek.

"How many times have I said we didn't take the chances we created?"

But on Sunday, with the Hammers trailing 1-0 at Chelsea in the thick of a relegation battle, Chicharito came off the bench and did what he does best: Score goals - specifically in that supersub role, and specifically against the Blues. Since my first day right here, they've supported me properly.

"This season we have struggled and this game describes our season".

SUPER SUB Javier Hernandez wants to give West Ham boss David Moyes a "headache" after kicking Chelsea in the teeth yet again.

"Sometimes when we play away from home you seem to get that bigger input; we did from the West Ham fans perhaps for some of the game today".

Joe Hart was also huge as West Ham held on for a point.

"At the time I thought there was a bit on the ball".

'I'm very focused on West Ham at the moment, that's my job and that's what I'm here to do, to fight for this team, ' he added.

The Republic of Ireland worldwide, who made his debut for the Boys in Green last month, impressed at the heart of the Hammers defence against the reigning Premier League champions.
