Chelsea news: Willian fires message to Antonio Conte after Huddersfield win

The Premier League champions suffered a shock 1-0 defeat at West Ham United last weekend that left them 14 points behind league leaders Manchester City. He has been England's first choice goalkeeper for a number of years now but his place in Russian Federation is in doubt.

But while Conte concedes his side's defeat to Manchester City was understandable, their losses to Burnley, Crystal Palace and West Ham, the latter two both in relegation danger, have given the Blues boss major cause for concern.

That win was a first in five matches for David Moyes, who is available at 9/2 (5.50) with Betfair Sportsbook to ingratiate himself even further with the home fans by overseeing another eye-catching win here.

"I always have compassion for the players as well, that's why it wasn't an easy decision on Joe", Moyes told reporters.

Asked how Hart had reacted to be dropped, the former Everton and Sunderland manager replied: "I thought he was very good". It's a manager's job.

"Bakayoko was playing a good game but when you find 11 players behind the ball and you are losing 1-0, it's important to change something", said Conte. Pearce has however insisted that the 30-year-old is not sulking and is taking things the right way.

West Ham are aiming to move out of the relegation zone on Wednesday when they host Arsenal at the London Stadium. We have to freshen up and get the energy levels back up.

"When the opportunity comes around again, he has to be ready for it, clean sheets, no mistakes". 'I can describe my feelings, it was just awesome and all the players were just unbelievable and I think we deserved three points.

"The problem they have now, although it's not a problem as such, is that they have set such a high standard today and I think 'how can you be in this position when you can play like that?", Redknapp wondered. There could be an injury.

'We have got a great bunch of players who work hard for each other, ' he said.
