Olivier Giroud On Bench - Chelsea Team vs West Ham United Confirmed

But Javier Hernandez stepped off the bench to drag the Irons back on level terms with 17 minutes remaining and Joe Hart made a fine save to deny substitute Olivier Giroud a late victor.

Under-fire goalkeeper Joe Hart, whose England World Cup spot is in jeopardy following his struggles this season, then kept Chelsea at bay with some fine saves as West Ham held on grimly for another point to put towards their survival bid.

Chelsea enters Saturday in fifth place in the Premier League table with 56 points, eight points behind fourth-place Tottenham.

"I think that everyone has to show pride, desire and a will to fight until the end of the season". "This game describes it very well". It was an emphatic performance in the first half and it gave us the chance to go on and win the game quite well.

Blues boss Antonio Conte cut an irritated figure on the touchline as his faltering champions saw another two points slip away, having won just three times in the Premier League since the turn of the year. A lot of times.

Another Sanjita Chanu, one more gold
There's plenty of action to get to today, including the distribution of 22 gold medals, so let's dive straight in. India's Table Tennis Women's team has also made it through to the next round, beating Malaysia 3-0 overall.

Olivier Giroud of Chelsea looks dejected after their Premier League match against West Ham United at Stamford Bridge. "From where we are I want to try and push us on". We must win it. "It's unbelievable. For me, I just think this is a game too far for them".

"Otherwise, if we accept this result and say we were unlucky today, we are not building anything positive for the future", he said. A corner in the final minute, you risk losing the win.

"We have to pick up more". The Hammers shocked Chelsea in their last game with a goal from Marko Arnautovic but Conte's side will be out for revenge. If we are not able to win this type of game, we are talking about what?

"My belief is that we need two more wins to be sure - perhaps even two wins and a draw".

"In this case, if we wanted to reach a place in the Champions League [we have to win], because the other teams are clinical". He has great pace, great strength and we will miss him until the end of the season.
