Replacement Charlie Austin seemed to have earned a point for the visitors on 73 minutes before Welbeck popped up with an 81-minute header to see Arsenal home 3-2. The two Europeans then combined again and some brilliant improvisation from the Spaniard nearly resulted in the opening goal.

A hopeful ball into the box from Mark Noble was only partially cleared by Cahill, and after Marko Arnautovic hooked his cross to the edge of the box, the centre-half was unable to block Hernandez's shot that flew beyond Thibaut Courtois.

Released by Chelsea at 14.

Moyes' horrendous record at Stamford Bridge looked well on course to stretch to a ninth defeat in a 15-game winless run.

"Chicha has come on - after being on the other side of the world and being poorly - and we're so glad he was fit and got that vital goal", said Hart. After one decisive pass, the substitute found himself in acres of space to shoot.

"We must be realistic", he said.

It was a 'crazy day' for Declan Rice at Stamford Bridge.

However, as Chelsea surrendered yet another one-goal lead, they had to settle for a rather stale 1-1 draw with West Ham.

"We all want to play more than 20 minutes".

All five of Azpilicueta's league goals in 191 Chelsea appearances have come against teams beginning with W (two against Watford, two against West Brom and now one against West Ham).

"Joe showed today why he has so many caps and so many medals, so that will be good for him".

Blues fans will probably not get the chance to watch their side perform in the Champions League next season, and will have to be content with the Europa League.

The best came when Long cut the ball back for James Ward-Prowse, whose shot beat goalkeeper Petr Cech but was blocked by former Saints defender Calum Chambers.

But after a 'bonus' game, now comes possibly the game of the season at home to Stoke.

Chelsea football club paid the perfect tribute to former player and assistant coach; Ray Wilkins, who passed away due to a cardiac arrest last Thursday.

"The key was that we were never out of it, because the way they got the first goal was diabolical". For sure, I'm very close to his family.

"When Chelsea let me go it was really deflating", he admitted.

Chelsea weren't able to capitalise on a Liverpool draw in the Merseyside derby.

I would have probably commented earlier in the season that Chelsea's last few games look like a cakewalk for the most part, but Chelsea haven't been winning the easy games. The club should be more worried of dropping farther than fifth.
