Ray Wilkins tributes held by Chelsea ahead of West Ham match

Antonio Conte left hurt, angry and sad by Chelsea's disastrous title defence Chelsea boss Antonio Conte slams Gianluca Vialli amid Massimiliano Allegri rumours

Whilst Chelsea were preparing for their latest challenge against West Ham with three important points on the line in the Premier League, the club shared an emotional tribute for Ray Wilkins in the build-up to the game.

Chelsea are now 10 points behind Tottenham with six games to go and their hopes of elite European football next season are dwindling.

And as such, Cundy believes it is well and truly lights out on their lingering top four hopes.

Chelsea meanwhile take on Southampton (away), Burnley (away), Swansea City (away), Liverpool (home), Huddersfield Town (home) and Newcastle (away).

West Ham were nearly pegged back again on 79 minutes as Marcos Alonso fired a long range effort but Joe Hart produced a brilliant save to deny the Spanish defender.

Soon-to-be-dethroned top-flight champions Chelsea were on course for victory following defender Cesar Azpilicueta's opener, only for ex-Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez to climb off the bench to rescue what at times appeared an unlikely point with virtually his first touch.

Chicharito scored the equalizer minutes after subbing into the game and Joe Hart made a few key saves as West Ham earn a point against Chelsea.

Conte said: 'You must be clinical and score. "One year you win the league, the next it's a mess". Otherwise, if you score only once, you stay in balance - especially in England - and anything can happen to the end. "We must improve but, this season, I'm repeating this many times and I'm getting bored".

Asked where the result leaves Chelsea's aspirations for a top-four finish, Conte replied: "We must be realistic". This season, we have struggled a lot in this type of game. But today, we must win this game. In this case, if we wanted to reach a place in the Champions League.
