West Ham upset league leaders Chelsea

Bowen among the goal scorers

Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Arthur Masuaku’s first Premier League goal ended Chelsea’s eight-match unbeaten run as West Ham United earned a dramatic 3-2 win at the London Stadium.

West Ham, who also scored three times against Liverpool last month, turned this match around after trailing twice to Chelsea, who also conceded more than once for the first time this season.

Thiago Silva headed in Mason Mount’s corner on 28 minutes but West Ham levelled 12 minutes later when Edouard Mendy brought down Jarrod Bowen after Jorginho’s under hit backpass. Manuel Lanzini converted from the spot.

Chelsea went back in front before half-time through Mount’s spectacular volley.

Bowen brought West Ham level again on 56 minutes with a curling shot from outside the area.

Substitute Masuaku won the match in the 87th minute when his cross-cum-shot caught out Mendy at his near post.

Chelsea are top on 33 points but could be overtaken by Liverpool and Manchester City, who play later today.

West Ham stay fourth on 27 points.
