Fabregas Salvages Draw For Chelsea

Cesc Fabregas Chelsea

Cesc Fabregas scored a dramatic penalty with one minute remaining as Chelsea fought back twice to draw 2-2 with West Ham at Stamford Bridge, denying the visitors the chance to move into the Premier League’s top four.

Manuel Lanzini’s magnificent strike had West Ham in front, but Fabregas scored with a free-kick just before half-time to level matters.

Slaven Bilic introduced Carroll and he converted Dimitri Payet’s pass after 61 minutes to seemingly seal victory, but Fabregas intervened with a controversial late spot-kick that was awarded for Michail Antonio’s challenge on Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

A win would have put West Ham fourth in the table ahead of the meeting between their two closest challengers for a Champions League spot – Manchester City and Manchester United – on Sunday.

Instead, they stay fifth and miss the chance to defeat Chelsea for the first time in 10 attempts at Stamford Bridge.

Fabregas’ late strike ensures Guus Hiddink’s men avoid what would have been a first defeat in 14 Premier League matches since Jose Mourinho’s sacking last December after a 10-day spell that had also seen them crash out of the FA Cup and Champions League.
