Commentary

That's all from us today folks, we hope you enjoyed the game!
Chelsea end their three-game losing streak at home and tighten their grip on third spot, opening up a five-point lead over Arsenal and next up for the Blues is a trip to Manchester United on Thursday. Meanwhile West Ham remain seventh and they'll turn their attentions to the Europa League in midweek, as they face Frankfurt in the semi-finals.
Chelsea leave it late to beat West Ham, with Pulisic popping up in the 90th minute to score the winning goal to clinch a 1-0 victory. It looked like it would end goalless, after Jorginho saw his poor penalty saved by Fabianski just a couple of minutes earlier, which also resulted in a straight red card for Dawson for denying Lukaku a goalscoring opportunity. West Ham had defended well throughout, but there wasn't enough time left on the clock for them to get an equaliser.
90' + 5' FULL-TIME: CHELSEA 1-0 WEST HAM
90' + 4' Chelsea are taking their time with everything now, just slowing the pace of the game down and trying to see it out to full-time.
90' + 2' Decent chance! Mount fires a looping effort towards the top left corner of the net, but it flies inches over the crossbar, with Fabianski scrambling across.
90' There will be a minimum of four minutes added time played at the end of the second half.
Marcos Alonso
Assist
90' Alonso was allowed far too much space down the left and he picked out Pulisic perfectly in the middle of the box, who produced a fine finish.
C. Pulišić
Goal
90' GOOOAAALLL! PULISIC FIRES CHELSEA AHEAD! Mount releases Alonso down the left flank and the wing-back delivers a good low cross into the box, which Pulisic runs onto the end of and he fires the ball into the bottom right corner of the net. Chelsea lead 1-0 with just minutes remaining!
88' West Ham don't have long to play with 10-men, can they deny Chelsea and hold on to share the points?
Ł. Fabiański
Penalty Save
87' SAVED!! Fabianski won't be able to believe how lucky he is to have been on the end of that penalty from Jorginho. It was such a comfortable save for the keeper, diving the right way.
Jorginho
Penalty Miss
87' PENALTY MISSED! Jorginho steps up to take the Chelsea penalty, but it's an awful effort! The midfielder tries to send Fabianski the wrong way, but the keeper guesses correctly and it's almost like a pass into his path. Fabianski makes a comfortable save and it remains goalless.
C. Dawson
Red Card
86' RED CARD! Dawson is sent off! The referee reviews the video footage and it shows that Dawson was the last man and has therefore denied Lukaku a clear goalscoring opportunity, so West Ham are down to 10 men.
85' Dawson has been shown a yellow card for the challenge on Lukaku, but the referee is going over to the pitchside monitor as VAR have informed him that there is a possible red card decision.
84' CHELSEA PENALTY! Thiago Silva flicks the ball on and Lukaku latches onto it on the edge of the box, turning Dawson and the centre-back pulls his arm and brings the striker down to the ground. The referee immediately points to the spot.
84' Penalty shout! Lukaku gets his head to a cross and it's well blocked by Dawson, but the home crowd think it's struck his arm. However, it clearly comes off his chest. Nothing given.
Marcos Alonso
Yellow Card
82' Alonso is the first player to be booked after an aerial clash with Soucek as the Chelsea man seems to lead with his arm.
80' We're into the final 10 minutes of the game now, plus any stoppage time added on. Can either side nick a late winner to clinch all three points?
M. Lanzini
S. Benrahma
78' The Hammers have now made their final change, with Benrahma coming off and on comes Lanzini.
R. Lukaku
K. Havertz
76' The third change sees Havertz replaced by Lukaku.
C. Pulišić
T. Werner
76' Werner is another to depart and on comes Pulisic.
H. Ziyech
R. Loftus-Cheek
76' Chelsea are going to make a triple change now, with the first seeing Loftus-Cheek replaced by Ziyech.
74' CHANCE! Werner just manages to make contact with a loose ball in the box as Dawson misses his header, but he can't get enough power behind it and Fabianski makes the save.
J. Bowen
A. Yarmolenko
73' Another West Ham change now, with Yarmolenko heading off and he has been replaced by Bowen.
72' This is much better from both sides, but Chelsea are asking more questions in the final third now and the home crowd are urging them forward.
70' CHANCE! First Mount sees his strike well blocked by Dawson, but the rebound falls straight to the feet of Werner, who tries to work an angle to beat Fabianski from close range. However, his effort flies into the sidenetting! Good opportunity.
70' CHANCE! Great opportunity for Yarmolenko to break the deadlock! The forward gets in behind the Chelsea defence and should pull the ball back for a team-mate, but instead goes for goal himself, trying to beat Mendy from a tight angle. However, the keeper makes a great stop, before blocking the second shot from Yarmolenko on the rebound.
68' Thiago Sliva does well to bring the ball out of defence and gets to the edge of the penalty area, but his strike cannons into Werner and doesn't trouble Fabianski.
66' It's just going to be a warning for Cresswell after he takes far too long with a throw-in deep inside the West Ham half. He didn't have much movement to aim at.
64' West Ham manager David Moyes has never won in 16 Premier League away games against Chelsea (D7 L9). There are just two occasions of a manager facing a side more on the road without ever winning, with Moyes also responsible for both of those (18 vs Arsenal, 17 vs Liverpool).
D. Rice
M. Noble
62' Here is the West Ham substitution, with Noble the man coming off and he has been replaced by Rice, who also takes the captain's armband.
61' It looks like West Ham are getting ready to make their first change of the game now, as Rice is receiving some instructions on the sidelines.
59' SAVE! Fabianski is finally being called into action. This time he has to deny Chalobah after the defender unleashed a strike towards goal, but the keeper dives across and pushes it away to safety.
57' Decent chance! Kante finds space on the edge of the penalty area and unleashes an effort towards goal, but Johnson gets across and gets a touch on it, which almost fools Fabianski. However, the keeper manages to adjust his feet and make the save.
56' BLOCKED! Yarmolenko gets into the Chelsea box and flicks the ball back to Soucek, who tries to pass it into the back of the net. However, he doesn't get enough pace on it and Thiago Silva makes a good block and clears the danger.
54' This is better from Chelsea, they've increased the intensity since the Werner chance a couple of minutes ago and look a bit more dangerous in the final third.
52' BLOCKED! Loftus-Cheek heads a deep cross from Mount back across the box and it falls to Werner, who turns and volleys a powerful effort towards goal, but Dawson throws himself at the shot and makes an excellent block to deny him.
51' Mount whips a good cross into the box in search of a team-mate, but it isn't met by anyone and instead flies dangerously close to the back post. However, it flies wide of the goal.
50' It's the West Ham fans that you can hear inside Stamford Bridge at the moment, with not much happening on the pitch to get the Chelsea supporters off their seats.
48' No changes by either team at the break, but I'm sure a few Chelsea players have been spoken to, in an attempt to get them going in the second half.
46' The second half is under way!
It looks like Chelsea may need to change a few things in the second half if they are to open the scoring here, as Werner and Havertz have hardly had a sniff in the first period. Meanwhile West Ham will probably be fairly happy with the scoreline so far.
It's goalless at the break between Chelsea and West Ham, with both keepers yet to be tested, despite Chelsea enjoying the majority of possession in midfield. It's pretty flat at Stamford Bridge, perhaps as Chelsea have lost their last three games here, but there hasn't been any shots of note from the home side, with a lack of quality in the final third. West Ham have tried to counter-attack when they can, with Yarmolenko having a decent chance, but he drilled his strike wide of the post.
45' + 3' HALF-TIME: CHELSEA 0-0 WEST HAM
45' + 2' It doesn't look like we're going to see any goals before the break here, it's very lacklustre from both teams, with nothing for either set of supporters to shout about.
45' There will be a minimum of three minutes added time played at the end of the first half.
44' The Hammers whip a deep free-kick into the penalty area and it's met by Dawson at the far post, who heads the ball back across goal in search of a team-mate, but Mendy is alert to the danger and easily gathers.
42' West Ham have won three of their last five Premier League games against Chelsea (L2), including a 3-2 win at the London Stadium in the reverse fixture this season. The Hammers had only won three of their previous 26 league games against the Blues before this (D6 L17).
40' There isn’t long left to play before the end of the first half, can either side break the deadlock before the half-time whistle?
38' Good move! Chelsea work the ball well in the final third, with Kante feeding Mount and he should fire a shot at goal himself, but instead he flicks it to Loftus-Cheek. The makeshift wing-back then drills a low effort towards goal, but Fabianski makes a comfortable save.
37' West Ham will be the happier of the two sides, keeping a clean sheet away from home and no injuries to report, in what is a huge week for the club. Several key players have been rested in preparation for the Europa League semi-final on Thursday.
35' Free-kick to West Ham in a decent position, after Fornals is fouled around 25 yards out to the right. However, the Hammers fail to create anything from the set piece.
33' CHANCE! Good move by West Ham, with Fornals chipping the ball through the Chelsea defence and Yarmolenko latches on it, firing an effort towards the bottom right corner of the net. However, it flies just wide of the post.
31' West Ham currently have everyone back behind the ball at the moment in their own half, as Chelsea continue to control the midfield.
29' We’re almost at the half an hour mark now and it remains goalless between Chelsea and West Ham, with no chances to speak of for either side.
27' After winning consecutive away league games against Watford and Crystal Palace, West Ham are winless in their last five on the road (D1 L4). They’ve lost their last three in a row, their longest run since a run of seven between December 2019 and June 2020.
25' Chelsea look very flat at the moment, they are failing to get any attack going in the final third and there isn't much atmosphere either, perhaps due to the reduced attendance.
23' West Ham's best opportunity to score looks to be on the counter-attack, with Chelsea making a couple of mistakes in defence and the Hammers attackers are taking advantage.
21' Blocked! The ball falls nicely to Masuaku on the edge of the box after Chelsea fail to clear a corner and the midfielder powers a volley towards goal, but Alonso makes a good block, before Mendy gathers in the air.
20' Stoppage in play here as there has been a clash of heads in the West Ham box between Thiago Silva and Soucek, with both players requiring some medical attention. However, it looks like they'll both be fine to continue.
18' Decent chance! Azpilicueta makes a big mistake in his own half as he takes too long with a back pass and Benrahma nicks it off him and then races into the final third. However, he doesn't have any support in the box, so holds off for as long as possible, before drilling a low cross into the six-yard box, which Mendy has to pounce on.
16' West Ham have hardly touched the ball in the opening minutes of the game, they've had to soak up a lot of pressure as Chelsea continue to dominate possession.
14' Chelsea have lost just one of their last 15 Premier League home games against West Ham (W10 D4), going down 1-0 in November 2019.
12' Werner almost gets away from Johnson on the edge of the West Ham penalty area, he just seems to get the ball stuck under his feet a little bit and it hands the Hammers defender a chance to clear the danger.
10' We've got an odd stoppage in play here as Azpilicueta needs a new pair of boots as one of his has split! He's had to go off the pitch, while the kit man gets them ready.
8' Decent chance! N'Kante manages to work a little bit of space on the edge of the box and fires a low strike towards the bottom left corner, but it flies wide of the post.
7' Good probing in the West Ham half by Chelsea, with the Hammers allowing them to have the ball in midfield, but the hosts haven't tested Fabianski.
5' Andreas Christensen was due to start at centre-back today alongside Thiago Silva and Azpilicueta, but he fell ill during the warm-up, so Chalobah has stepped into the starting line-up instead.
3' Chelsea with the early possession here, looking to create something in the final third, but Jorginho's chipped ball over the top of the visitors is poor and goes out of play.
1' We're under way!
The teams are out on the pitch and kick-off is just a few minutes away, stay tuned for all the match action!
David Moyes has rested a few players ahead of their European game in a few days time, with six changes made, as Issa Diop, Rice, Bowen, Lanzini, Vlasic and Antonio dropping out. In come Coufal, Noble, Masuaku, Fornals, Yarmolenko and Benrahma.
Thomas Tuchel has made three changes to the side that were beaten by Arsenal, with Reece James missing out due to injury, while Sarr and Lukaku drop to the bench. Thiago Silva, Jorginho and Havertz come into the starting line-up.
WEST HAM SUBS: Alphonse Areola, Michail Antonio, Manuel Lanzini, Nikola Vlasic, Jarrod Bowen, Ryan Fredericks, Alex Kral, Declan Rice, Aji Alese.
WEST HAM (3-4-2-1): Lukasz Fabianski; Ben Johnson, Craig Dawson, Aaron Cresswell; Vladimir Coufal, Tomas Soucek, Mark Noble, Arthur Masuaku; Pablo Fornals, Andriy Yarmolenko; Said Benrahma.
CHELSEA SUBS: Kepa Arrizabalaga, Romelu Lukaku, Christian Pulisic, Saul Niguez, Ross Barkley, Hakim Ziyech, Kenedy, Malang Sarr.
CHELSEA (3-4-1-2): Edouard Mendy; Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Trevoh Chalobah; Ruben Loftus-Cheek, N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, Marcos Alonso; Mason Mount; Timo Werner, Kai Havertz.
Meanwhile West Ham have a huge Europa League semi-final coming up in midweek against Eintracht Frankfurt, which may be their best opportunity to secure European football again. They are currently seventh in the table, after a draw with Burnley last time out, but they could leapfrog Manchester United with a win today.
Chelsea slipped up in midweek, suffering a 4-2 home defeat against Arsenal, so the gap between themselves and the Gunners in fourth spot is just two points. However, the Blues do have another game in hand, so they will be hoping that is enough to secure Champions League football for next season.
