In the 48th minute of this afternoon’s Premier League clash between Chelsea and West Ham, full-back Aaron Cresswell scored what proved to be the decisive goal of the match.
England international Cresswell expertly tricked Chelsea ace Reece James with a lovely piece of dribbling, the left-back then curled the ball into the goal with a lovely right-footed finish.
Some fans of Chelsea’s rivals have slammed James for his momentary lapse in concentration in the buildup to the vital goal.

James has been solid for the Blues this season, it’s unfortunate that the ace has had to experience perhaps his first major error in such a crucial clash this afternoon.
The versatile defender is certainly talented enough to bounce back from this blunder. Even the best players slip up at times.
