Chelsea celebrate as though they have won the title. They know how big that was. West Ham pushed and pushed after the break but real grit saw Chelsea through.

Willian has a shot blocked on the line in a rare Chelsea attack as Eden Hazard breaks.

Real chance for West Ham as their Brazilian substitute Nene has a shot from inside the penalty area blocked by Gary Cahill's hand. Desperate stuff by the league leaders but that would have been a harsh penalty.

West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

Kurt Zouma breaks up another West Ham attack. The makeshift centre midfielder has been a real warrior for Chelsea. Six minutes of injury time.

James Milner puts Manchester City 2-0 up against Leicester. Can Chelsea held on at Upton Park?

How many more chances does Diafra Sakho need? This time, Stewart Downing crosses from the left but Sakho heads over from close range.

Diego Costa dribbles a shot well wide from inside the area in a rare Chelsea attack. The visitors seem content to hold on to what they have but West Ham are pushing.

West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

Cheikhou Kouyate is finally up after having a cut glued up on the field. We are in for a tasty last 10 minutes.

Sam Allardyce is raging as Cheikhou Kouyate takes a clout to the head on the edge of the penalty area from John Terry. The West Ham man is down receiving treatment but no foul is given. Terry had turned his back on Kouyate and West Ham are adamant it was cynical.

CLOSE!

It comes to nothing though as Chelsea again deal with a ball into the penalty area. From the loose ball, Thibaut Courtois fumbles Enner Valencia's shot but Gary Cahill brilliantly gets back to block Diafra Sakho's rebound effort. West Ham are going for this.

Willian replaces Oscar in midfield for Chelsea, as Jose Mourinho looks to shore things up.

Still West Ham push forward as they force a corner...

West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

Chelsea are doing their best to take the heat out of the match with more patient possession. Just 20 minutes left for West Ham to get back into this.

After a subdued start, this has turned into a full-blooded London derby. Chelsea are still having more of the ball but don't rule out West Ham grabbing an equaliser here. They still look dangerous.

West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

This match is anyone's now as Diafro Sakho has two shots kept out by Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois in the space of a few seconds.

West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

BBC London 94.9

Former Leyton Orient manager Martin Ling: "A great save by Adrian with his feet. West Ham were calling for the offside again, and they're really under the cosh with Chelsea the aggressors. The tempo of Chelsea is wonderful. Are these players tired from that Sunday cup final? It doesn't show."

GREAT SAVE!

West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

Brilliant from Adrian. The West Ham goalkeeper keeps out Ramires's header with his feet from Eden Hazard's dinked cross.

HITS THE WOODWORK

West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

Chelsea break with Ramires and, after cutting inside, the Brazilian trickles a low shot against the post. Now, this is a match.

CLOSE!

West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

Sakho
John Walton/PA Wire

So, so close for West Ham. Marl Noble advances down the left and his cross causes panic inside Chelsea's penalty area. The ball just evades Diafra Sakho intially, before he prods the ball across goal, and Chelsea hack clear. The hosts are coming into this.

CLOSE!

West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

Better from West Ham as Diafra Sakho turns smartly before shooting wide from inside the penalty area.

West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

Chelsea would have expected a more up-and-at-them approach from West Ham in this London derby. Plenty of time for that to change though. At the moment the hosts are just a little bit subdued.

KICK-OFF

West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

The teams are back out at Upton Park. Can West Ham do Manchester City a favour in the Premier League title race?

Game on.

West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

Stats
BBC

As you can see from above, Chelsea are dominating possession so far but West Ham have looked dangerous on the break. The Blues will fancy a second to make this safe.

HALF-TIME

West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

It's as you were in the Premier League as David Silva gives Manchester City the lead against Leicester. Chelsea are doing what they need to do though.

YELLOW CARD

West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

Zouma
Reuters

Kurt Zouma is in trouble as he limps off for treatment after a late tackle from James Collins. The West Ham man is rightly shown yellow.

Zouma is back on and running. Four minutes of injury time.

West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

Chelsea have now scored in 14 matches in a row. Manchester City are drawing 0-0 with Leicester, meaning the Blues will go seven points clear at the top of the Premier League if results stay the same.

CLOSE!

West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

Sakho
Reuters

West Ham should be level. Carl Jenkinson whips in a cross from the right but an unmarked Diafra Sakho heads into the ground and straight at Thibaut Courtois from close range. A really weak header.

CLOSE!

West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

Take a bow Carl Jenkinson. The West Ham defender stops Diego Costa from doubling Chelsea's lead with a brilliant last-ditch sliding tackle. The Spain striker is through on goal, from Eden Hazard's through ball, but is stopped just as he is set to shoot.

This looks ominous for West Ham. Chelsea look so comfortable and are finding a lot of space on the flanks. The Hammers are hanging on.

West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

BBC London 94.9

Former Leyton Orient manager Martin Ling: "It looked offside, but I think the ball was played backwards. Very worrying for West Ham, the space that was granted to Hazard inside the six yard box. Chelsea lead, and that goal is Chelsea all over - it's not luck."

West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

Sam Allardyce will be looking at the replays of Chelsea's opener very closely. Eden Hazard could well have been offside when he headed home. It is a very fine line though.

GOAL

West Ham 0-1 Chelsea - Eden Hazard

Hazard Celebration

A brilliant move by Chelsea and they are ahead. Eden Hazard starts the move with a pass to Cesc Fabregas on the edge of the penalty area. He plays the ball to Ramires on the right and his cross is headed home by the Belgian. West Ham are cut apart.

GREAT SAVE!

West Ham 0-0 Chelsea

The hosts are getting into the game now. Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has to be alert to block Cheikhou Kouyate's close-range shot with his legs, after Kevin Nolan's smart turn.

West Ham 0-0 Chelsea

Enner Valencia has West Ham's first shot at goal but his 25-yard free-kick is high, wide and not very handsome.

YELLOW CARD

West Ham 0-0 Chelsea

Now it's Chelsea's turn to worry about one of their players after Kurt Zouma takes a blow to the face from Cheikhou Kouyate. The West Ham man is booked and Zouma is back up and running, despite a bloody mouth.

West Ham 0-0 Chelsea

Chelsea are well in control early on with 70% of possession. Apart from Diego Costa's chance though, West Ham have looked comfortable enough.
