Chelsea beat West Ham

A Thiago Silva header and late double from Tammy Abraham earned lacklusture Chelsea a 3-0 win over West Ham at Stamford Bridge.

Frank Lampard’s side, who had lost their last two in the Premier League, needed to get back on track against their London rivals and Silva’s powerful header on 10 minutes was the ideal start, after Declan Rice had a goal ruled out for offside.

The game descended into an attritional affair short on quality after that dramatic opening, but two sharp finishes from Abraham (78, 80) in two minutes sealed the three points which lift Chelsea above Tottenham, into fifth, while West Ham will spend Christmas in 10th spot.
