Tony Cottee: 'West Ham United were poor against Chelsea'

Tony Cottee: 'West Ham United were poor against Chelsea'

Fellow Ireland U21 global Josh Cullen made his second Premier League appearance this season off the bench against Chelsea yesterday, his third in total.

The Hammers earned a vital point as Javier Hernández netted a late equaliser to secure an unexpected 1-1 draw, moving his side one step closer to safety.

All those near-misses came back to haunt Chelsea in the 73rd minute.

After a series of mediocre results, a ruthless Spurs side punished Chelsea's inability to capitalise on their first half chances with a 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge, the first time a Tottenham side has won at the ground in 28 years.

After a rousing and emotional minute's applause for former player and assistant manager Ray Wilkins, who passed away this week, the hosts started in dominant mood. I don't know what we can change."West Ham, now six points clear of the relegation zone, were ecstatic to escape with a point despite a largely limp display".

His introduction to the game was certainly key for West Ham to get their goal, with Arnautovic struggling as a lone striker.




West Ham are scheduled to face off against Stoke, Arsenal, Manchester City, Leicester, Manchester United, and Everton.

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. Since my first day here, they have supported me well. I think in the second half we can finish the game. 'Next Monday against Stoke is our game of the season now.

They need to hope for either Tottenham or Liverpool to make a few mistakes along the way, but I would be more anxious about Chelsea's performance.

West Ham team: Hart, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Rice, Noble, Zabaleta, Kouyate, Masuaku, Arnautovic, Joao Mario, Fernandes.

Rice - who made his Ireland senior debut against Turkey last month - said: "If you let your heads go down against these sorts of players, you're going to 4-0 or 5-0 down". We are creating a good spirit in the team, we stick together and today was a good example of that.
