But rather than discuss whether his team should have had a penalty that may have won them the match, Moyes instead insisted he would rather talk about West Ham's positive display.

Welbeck then cut inside onto Alex Iwobi's pass to give Arsene Wenger's side a barely-deserved halftime lead.

A succession of corners got the away fans on their feet, although West Ham's newfound confidence left them open to the counter as the game became seriously stretched.

But it was entirely fitting, therefore, that an Englishman should steal the show.

"The goal was a scrappy one to concede from a set piece and that was disappointing as we'd worked on them during the week, but we kept at it, kept going and we knew we'd get a chance. I thought I saw a definite movement with his knee towards Jack". "At least he is positive in what he is doing".

Chelsea's persistent pressure eventually paid off thanks to Azpilicueta who prodded the ball home from close range after Morata headed back across goal from a corner.

West Ham avoided defeat in an away Premier League game against the reigning champions for only the third time. That said, their form has been so erratic over the past couple of months that in likelihood, they will welcome Liverpool to Stamford Bridge next month with the top four already beyond them.

West Ham rode their luck to seal an unlikely point. Since my first day here, they have supported me well.

The Hammers now sit in 14th spot in the Premier League table, just four points adrift of the top 10, and there is a genuine feeling emanating from the club that a top half finish is a very real possibility.

"We have had good performances all season but you have to score". None of these will be easy games for the Hammers.

It was a weekend in which the England goalkeepers excelled.

Chelsea weren't able to capitalise on a Liverpool draw in the Merseyside derby. The most important thing is we got the point, though. I wish to give a headache to the supervisor like he has all around the squad.

While he didn't end up scoring in the game, he was a physical presence winning aerial duels against the West Ham defence.

Chelsea: Courtois, Azpilicueta, Cahill (capt), Rudiger, Moses [Pedro 78], Kante, Fabregas, Alonso, Willian, Morata [Giroud 78], Hazard.

In the 24 minute Alvaro Morata found the back of the net for Chelsea, but his goal was disallowed due to him being an off-sides position.
