West Ham were held to a 2-2 draw against rivals Chelsea in the London derby today at Stamford Bridge.

The Hammers opened the scoring on 17 minutes when Lanzini found the back of the net but Fabregas equalised just before the half time break.

In an almost repeat of the first half Andy Caroll scored early to put West Ham back ahead but Fabregas equalised yet again with a last minute penalty.

Slaven Bilic decided to rest on-loan Fenerbahce winger Emmanuel Emenike going into the clash but he did come on for Valencia on 75 minutes.

The draw saw the Hammers move within touching distance of fourth placed Manchester City just one points behind the Citizens.

The Blues meanwhile extended their unbeaten run to 14 league game since Jose Mourinho’s departure but the Blues have won just two out of those games at home.
