West Ham beat Liverpool 3-2 at home on 6 November. But since then, the team that has been making a splash in the Premier League for the last two seasons has not been able to win. They lost at Wolverhampton, then Harrell at Manchester City. West Ham seemed to be in the throes of a win over Liverpool as they were unbeaten in three matches in a row with a 1-1 draw against Brighton.
But David Moyes’ side brought back the joy of getting Chelsea at home today. The occasion is great. This was the team at the top of the league before the Chelsea match, again the club of Chelsea and West Ham London. West Ham beat Thomas Tuchel’s team 3-2 in the final in the Derby. That’s how it is! Come back from falling behind twice and win by scoring a goal at the last moment!
West Ham equalized twice in the match, following a 12-minute lead. In the 26th minute, Thiago Silver headed in a Mason Mount cross from a corner to give Chelsea the lead.
With this goal, Silver became a name in the history of Chelsea. The 36-year-old 63-day-old Brazilian defender is now the oldest goal scorer in the league’s history. Earlier, Chelsea’s legendary Ivorian striker Didier Drogbar (36 years and 49 days old, against Leicester City in 2015) had the record for the oldest goal for Chelsea in the league.
But the joy of Chelsea’s lead in the silver goal came to an end after 12 minutes. Hammers equalized with a goal from Argentine midfielder Manuel Lansini from the penalty spot. Chelsea midfielder Giorgione is responsible for the goal.
A few days ago, in the 1-1 draw against Chelsea against Manchester United, United got the goal from his wrong back pass, today again the same mistake is made by Georginio. The Italian midfielder’s back pass to goalkeeper Eduard Mendi was mistaken for a goal that forced him to drop West Ham forward Jared Bowen. Penalty!
Georgini also made amends for his mistake against Man United by scoring from the penalty spot, but that is not the case today. However, Chelsea did not have time to move forward again. Mason Mount scored in the 44th minute with a perfect volley from a long pass by Hakim Jiash. Chelsea goes to the break from ahead.
Who would have thought that Chelsea could lose! Statistics show that Chelsea have not lost a match since taking a break from 47 league matches before the match against Wolverhampton in December 2016.
The account was changed for the 47th time today. Chelsea dropped striker Romelu Lukaku after a break to replace the injured Kai Hawartz, but West Ham scored in the 58th minute. Jared Bowen scored from a low shot from the edge of the box.
Holding 64% of the ball in the match, West Hum did not give a draw to Chelsea, which was leading (19-11) in the number of shots. Arthur Masuyakur left the field in the 6th minute after winning the goal. An unpleasant statistic for Chelsea coach Tuchel also got an extra dimension. Chelsea scored more than one goal in the third match in 53 matches under the German coach.
Now Chelsea is in danger of losing the top spot and falling to three. Chelsea have 33 points from 15 matches, while Manchester City have 32 points from 14 matches. Liverpool are three points behind City.
Liverpool are currently playing against West Ham, Man City will take to the field at Watford tonight at 11:30. West Ham at No. 4 with 26 points from 15 matches.
