Chelsea vs. West Ham United live score updates highlights & lineups from Premier League match.

Chelsea beat West Ham United 2-1 in the London derby at Stamford Bridge. Having previously avoided a scuffle with Thiago Silva, Michael Antonio took a close circle as he grabbed the defender around the head and dragged him to the ground.

Wesley Fofana is making his Chelsea debut, and the Blues are in control of most matters, but have struggled badly to start against the highly disciplined defensive unit of David Moyes.

Christian Pulisic begins with Raheem Sterling in the attack, but the USMNT star is already eliminated after struggling for an impact. It was Ben Chilwell’s replacement who was the surprise goalscorer for Chelsea, who poked the ball through Lukasz Fabianski’s legs from a tight angle.

Chelsea vs West Ham live updates, Premier League features

West Ham goal not allowed! Cornet fires high into the net after Mendy clears the ball from Bowen’s feet. However, after a VAR check, the West Ham forward is penalized for a foul on the Chelsea keeper: He grabbed Mendy’s hand by his stud as he stopped it, but contact was minimal. This sounds like an extremely harsh call.

GOOOOAAAAAALL! Havertz definitely won it for Chelsea! Chilwell becomes the provider, crosses low to the left, and Havertz gets it at the first pass post which leaves Fabiansky no chance. What a chance! Maxwell Cornet, as a substitute, goes against the post from barely a yard! Big discount for Chelsea.

Jorginho comes in for Loftus-Cheek, while Angelo Ogbona comes in for debutante Paqueta.GOOOOAAAALL! Chelsea are level – it’s Ben Chilwell with the equalizer! He runs, leans into the box from the left and Silva sends a long ball to find him. Two West Ham defenders get in each other’s way, it bounces off Chilwell’s head, and he quickly turns around and slips the ball through Fabianski’s feet!

Zuma to the rescue! Sterling’s cross is a peach and Havertz looks to turn it ahead of Fabianski, but the centre-back is cleared. Kai Havertz and Ben Chilwell are coming in for the hosts, who need a quality injection from somewhere. Early chance for Broja! The ball bounces through Lukasz Fabianski, he can’t hold onto it. GOOAALL! Antonio keeps West Ham ahead! Hammers have a string of corners, the latest delivery has Mendy flaps.

Is James Getting A Little Lucky? Antonio, after losing the ball to a promising counter, leads Chelsea to fullback as he heads towards the halfway point.

Better than Chelsea, two promising sterling scores as many minutes as West Ham’s defense retreats. 25 yards from West Ham’s goal, Pulisic blindfolds Fofana as he plays into space. He is ready for a great debut strike. We’re running back, and West Ham have a great start in the half. Antonio wins a free-kick and the ball is spanned via a throw-in to Bowen.

Covering West Ham defenders, Koulibaly goes foreach down the left wing, two crosses are out, and it’s a goal kick. Our game comes to a halt here after Loftus-Cheek and Sousek clashed head-on at a corner. It seems fine to continue with both. First real half chance for West Ham when Antonio turns and sends a dangerous deflected cross towards the six-yard box without a partner. The pace we expected from Sterling and Pulisic.

Kovacic tries a snapshot from the edge of the box, which is sprung from the narrow form of the left-hand post. As we approach the half-hour mark, we’ve got a shot at this match that tells you everything you need to know. ┬áReece James is fired into space from the right, but the balloon is thrown out of play. It’s all flattened a bit on the bridge. West Ham fans in good voice in sunny London.

Chelsea get off to a positive start here. Pulisic goes to the left in the bottom box but former Chelsea player Kurt Zouma clears his dangerous cross. Some early cheer for Fofana as he throws the ball to Antonio to snuff out a potentially promising West Ham break. Here we go! West Ham is driving us. It looks like Gallagher is starting between Sterling and Pulisic as No. 10.
