Has the bubble burst for Chelsea?
On Wednesday night, they faced West ham United at the London Stadium.
However, West Ham thought they’d taken the lead in the 35th minute from a corner. But, after a nearly four minute VAR review, the goal was disallowed.
Tomáš Souček, who’s first West Ham goal had been disallowed minutes earlier, did score a legitimate goal this time, rising above César Azpilicueta. West Ham took the lead just six minutes after the interval.
But, Chelsea were on level terms when Willian curled a free-kick in off the post in the 72nd minute. With just two minutes to play, Andriy Yarmolenko raced away from the sluggish Marcos Alonso, cut inside round Antonio Rüdiger and found the corner to secure the points for the Hammers.
Despite this, Frank Lampard’s side remain fourth, one point behind Leicester and two above both Manchester United and Wolves.
Watford could be heading for the Championship after five seasons back in the top-flight.
They were beaten 3-1 at Vicarage Road by Southampton, and have taken just one point from their three games since the break, drawing 1-1 with Leicester and losing 1-0 at Burnley. And they remain just one point above the relegation zone.
After this though they face Norwich, Newcastle and then West Ham before concluding at home to Manchester City and away to Arsenal.
