After Chelsea’s Thiago Silva opened the game’s scoring after 29-minutes, Manuel Lanzini was then gifted the perfect opportunity to drag West Ham United level from the penalty spot.
Despite converting the penalty, West Ham United now find themselves trailing once again.
Just five minutes after goalkeeper Edouard Mendy gave the Hammers a penalty, Chelsea launched a quick counter attacker which was expertly finished off by midfielder Mason Mount.
Reacting to a lofted pass, the England international perfectly placed a first-time volley to beat Hammers’ number one Lukas Fabianski.
What a hit from Mason Mount! ?
