Paul Merson states his prediction for Chelsea FC v West Ham

Tom Cairney has been spotted sitting just behind David Moyes at West Ham United's match against Chelsea.

Moyes' side weathered the early storm, however, and could have taken the lead themselves in the 14th minute when Marko Arnautovic pulled down a long ball in the penalty area.

Chelsea remain fifth on 57 points and are now 10 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur in the league table.

Having taken temporary control of Chelsea from the dugout on three separate occasions between 2008 and 2010, he became well known to a new generation of English football fans. If you don't win games there's no top-four, it's easy'.

Victor Moses, left unmarked by West Ham's ponderous defence, scooped a cross towards Morata and he headed down to Azpilicueta, who controlled before poking a soft shot past Hart for his first goal since October.

Chelsea were put to the sword by Dele Alli and co. last weekend and will want to put in a more controlled display. Lanzini might not have hit the heights of last season, but he has still contributed three goals and six assists in his 21 league games.

The half ended with the home side leading by a single goal.

His finish today was emphatic, as his side footed strike leaving Thibaut Courtois with absolutely no chance between the sticks. They have 4 clean sheets each and although Hart has conceded 33 goals to Adrián's 24, the summer transfer window is likely to throw up a lot of speculation linking goalkeepers to a move into the London stadium. They create chances, they are ready to suffer and win the game.

Here are the biggest winners and losers from this evening's match between the sides.

Tottenham won their first game at the west London club since 1990 last weekend after goals from Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli sealed a 3-1 win over Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge last weekend.
