Cesar Azpilicueta pays tribute to Ray Wilkins with goal celebration vs West Ham

"Listen, Liverpool drew yesterday and there was a very slim outside chance that we might be able to catch them", Cundy said on Chelsea TV. They create a chance, they are ready to suffer and ready to win the game. Otherwise, if you score only once, you stay in balance - especially in England - and anything can happen to the end. "I like to continue to say: "We have to work and improve".

"Other teams are clinical. We have to improve".

Wilkins, who died at 61 of a cardiac arrest, was most known for his time at Chelsea as a player before coming back as an assistant coach.

The former midfielder, who also featured on the front of the match-day programme, was also remembered before kick-off with a minute's applause.

It was the sixth time in his career that Hernandez had emerged as a substitute to net against Chelsea, and his strike left West Ham six points clear of the relegation zone prior to their crunch game with Stoke next Monday.

Chelsea have now won only three Premier League games in 2018 and have just seven wins from their past 20 games in all competitions.

West Ham were nearly pegged back again on 79 minutes as Marcos Alonso fired a long range effort but Joe Hart produced a brilliant save to deny the Spanish defender.

Eden Hazard's indifferent form has epitomised Chelsea's struggles and the Belgian playmaker had gone seven games without a goal.

It was only a temporary reprieve for West Ham as Conte's men took a 36th-minute lead from the resulting short corner.

Mark Noble pumped a long ball into the Chelsea area and Blues captain Gary Cahill responded with a mistimed header that dropped for Marko Arnautovic.

Marcos Alonso nearly spared Chelsea's blushes with a thunderous strike, but Hart finished as West Ham's hero with superb saves to keep out that effort and one from an Olivier Giroud header.
