Large portions of the Hammers fan base on social media were claiming that they didn't rate the former Hull star, while one compared him to past flop Matt Jarvis.

"There are many good teams in the Premier League with attacking football, flair and individual class". West Ham has been very good against the bottom half of the table and bad against the top.

Their latest victory was just another measure of their durability bearing in mind it came after a weekend in which the two nearest teams, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City, had won convincingly.

Ten months later, they are 33 points above the Hammers, 10 points better off than anyone else and, with 11 games to go, have 16 more points than they managed all last season. But to beat Chelsea, some of their stars will really have to perform outstandingly. But they need to be beware. Slaven Bilic's West Ham remain in 11th spot in the standings.

Speaking to Chelsea's website about returning to the Champions League next term, Conte expressed his desire to sample Europe's premier club competition.

Diego Costa has scored 48 goals in 78 Premier League appearances. But I hope, on Monday, to find a good atmosphere in the stadium.

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic has moved to end rumours linking the club with a new goalkeeper in the summer transfer window as he insisted that he is very happy with the options he now has at his disposal.

Jeff Sessions to answer Russian Federation questions in writing
The Russian embassy has refused to comment on Kislyak's meetings. "This is not even a close call; it is a must", he posted on Twitter . "He's an honest man", he said of Sessions.

After half-time, Chelsea continued to threaten, although their second goal wasn't quite as precise as their first. Five minutes after the break, Diego Costa kneed home a scrappy second for the Blues, who were in control for the majority of the match. Even if it does, this is Chelsea's Premier League crown to lose.

The Blues can thus make the decisive step towards the sixth league title with the potential win from London stadium because they are as many as ten points clear at the top at the moment.

Which Chelsea players shone during the Blues' win over West Ham United?

'One on the left, one on the right.

In those three windows, though, I have said a few times that the only position in the team I have absolutely no interest in discussing is the goalkeeping spot.

Chelsea excel in all departments but the speed of their counter attack proved to be particularly hard for the hosts to deal with.

"I know how Leicester feel".

However, it was thanks to his pressure on the Chelsea defence that helped contribute to the consolation goal.
