West Ham 1-1 Chelsea LIVE REACTION: Injury-hit Hammers hold visitors at the London Stadium as VAR misses Tomas Soucek’s handball in the dying stages
Chelsea were held to a 1-1 draw at the London Stadium by a determined West Ham side on Saturday afternoon.
The Blues made the perfect start when Enzo Fernandez found Joao Felix with a lovely cross and he slotted a strike beyond Lukasz Fabianski.
But the hosts responded through Emerson Palmeiri as the former Chelsea man connected with Jarrod Bowen’s flick to grab a quick equaliser.
The Hammers then had a late second disallowed for offside before Tomas Soucek got away with a blatant handball in the area as the match approached its conclusion.
