West Ham United 0-1 Chelsea

(42′ mins): Just after the half-hour mark the hosts believed they snatched a vital breakthrough. Chelsea made a hash of clearing Jarrod Bowen’s flag-kick – Tomas Soucek bundled home from close range. VAR intervened – the grounded Antonio adjudged off-side after another tedious wait.

And having survived that scare, Chelsea took control. Pulisic went over Issa Diop’s clumsy challenge – Willian rattled home the resulting spot-kick, sending Fabianski the wrong way.
