Chelsea were in danger of being in the top four of the English Premier League after losing to Arsenal last week. However, another London team, West Ham United, faced Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
The Blues almost lost points in this match as well. However, at the very last moment of the match, Chelsea was able to leave the field with an important victory in the 90th minute with the goal of Christian Pulisic. With that, they also strengthened their position in the third place of the league table.
Chelsea scored 75 points in 32 matches. Man City is at the top with 70 points in 33 matches. Liverpool are second with 69 points and Arsenal are fourth with 60 points.
Chelsea were far ahead of David Moyes’ Hammers in the fight for possession from start to finish. But they could not find the goal. At this time, there was a fear of losing points in the third league match drawn at home.
However, after almost the entire match remained goalless, the final drama was seen at the very last moment. West Ham defender Craig Dawson fouled Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku in the box. Chelsea were awarded a penalty, but Dawson was shown a red card for illegally scoring a goal.
But at this stage Chelsea won to be the ultimate disappointment. Georginho came to take the penalty spot kick in the 7th minute. West Ham goalkeeper Lukas Fabianski saved his kick.
