Chelsea were surprisingly beaten by West Ham at the London Stadium on Saturday afternoon, as the Blues lost the game 3-2.

Arthur Masuaku came off the bench to score what proved to be the winner in the Hammers’ 3-2 victory in the lunchtime London derby.

The new sub crossed a ball from the left flank, and it caught Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy off guard as he could only parry it into his own net.

Explaining how the late goal came about, West Ham boss David Moyes said at full time: “It was a great cross.

“You have to get the ball in the box and you have to try to do it and we’ve all seen other types of goals from crosses where it has dipped over the goalkeeper in the back post and different things.

“So look, it was I think at the time we have to say it is a bit of a lucky goal but in midweek, we didn’t get a goal to make it 2-0 when VAR went against us which for the life of me I cannot see how that was ruled out. You have to do you get in football and today we got that goal to win 3-2.”
