Chelsea risk dropping to third place after 3-2 loss to West Ham

League leaders Chelsea travelled to the London Stadium hoping to extend their lead by gaining four points ahead of Manchester City and Liverpool. Little did they know that West Ham was not ready to be beaten either.

Thiago Silva had given Chelsea the lead which was equalized by West Ham’s Manuel Lanzini through a penalty five minutes before the break.

Chelsea restored their advantage in spectacular fashion, Mount sending a superb side-footed volley into the corner from Hakim Ziyech’s low cross for his second goal in two games.

Bowen’s low drive from the edge of the area restored parity once more before Masuaku’s remarkable 87th-minute winner.

Arthur Masuaku scored a bizarre late winner as top-four hopefuls West Ham twice came from behind to beat Premier League leaders Chelsea in a pulsating encounter.

After collecting the ball wide on the left, Masuaku arrowed a left-footed cross-cum-shot past Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy at his near post to send the Hammers supporters into ecstasy.

The win consolidated West Ham’s place in the top four, while Chelsea will drop to third if Manchester City and Liverpool win this weekend.
