Chelsea Discover Their Mojo Back. The consecutive loss Chelsea FC recorded against Wolves and Everton may have spurred them to a victory against West Ham. The London club’s title ambitions came under scrutiny in the past week. Consequently, the 3-0 win they laboured to earn against a formidable West ham side became vital. As a result, Chelsea has now moved up to the fifth position in the league table.
The Blues started the match on the front foot as the Frank Lampard tutored lads are keen to put the disappointments of the past few days behind them. They deservedly took the lead when Thiago Silva got on the score sheet as he powered a header into the net. After that goal, West Ham took over the initiative as they attacked Chelsea from all angles.
Chelsea remained on the backfoot till the end of the first half. West Ham started the second half where they left off, making inroads into the Chelsea goal area. Unfortunately, they found in Thiago Silva; a rock that refused to yield. The Brazilian was at his best, intercepting and blocking every attempt by the visitors.

Against the run of play, Chelsea got their second goal when Abraham finished off a fine counter-attacking move. The England striker made it three almost immediately when he fired home a rebound from a Pulisic header. After that goal, Chelsea controlled the game as they sealed off the game.
A lot is expected from this Chelsea team after Frank Lampard spent over 200 million in the summer transfer window. He brought in the likes of Harvets, Ziyetch, and Werner to strengthen his club. With these investments, Chelsea became a potential title contender to many followers of the English Premier League. When the team recorded losses recently against Everton and Wolves, tongues wagged.
In the meantime, it is glaring that Chelsea has discovered back their magic wand. Despite putting up a below-par performance, they beat the Impressive Hammers by 3-0. It is the stuff of champions, to win even when playing badly.
In another development, David Moyes’s Stamford Bridge woes continue. The Scottish manager is yet to record a win at Stamford Bridge in the 16 Premier League matches he has managed in that Stadium. That is the joint highest tally of a coach not winning in a stadium. This record is level with his other record at Anfield stadium.
