West Ham United's English defender Aaron Cresswell celebrates with Wteammates after he scores his team's first goal during the English Premier League football match between Chelsea and West Ham United at Stamford Bridge in London on November 30, 2019
Had Chelsea won they could have gone into second but they stay fourth, and Jose Mourinho's Tottenham Hotspur are now just six points behind.
For West Ham this is a huge win for their manager Manuel Pellegrini and they now move up to 13th.
TALKING POINT - The win that saved Pellegrini?
West Ham came into this game on a dire run. No wins since beating Manchester United on September 22, and only two points in the league since. Throw in the League Cup humiliation by Oxford United and Pellegrini had found himself on the rocks.

He's by no means out of the woods, but an away win against Chelsea is a great way to buy him some time, and there was clear evidence that his players were playing for him.
MAN OF THE MATCH - David Martin (West Ham)
The 33-year-old journeyman was making his first appearance for West Ham, coming in for Roberto, who has struggled badly since joining the Hammers. Martin, the son of West Ham legend Alvin Martin, was brilliant. He made key saves throughout to keep Chelsea out, including a brilliant triple save just before half time. He put his body on the line to keep Tomori out in first half stoppage time. There were some fine defensive performances for West Ham, but Martin stood out.

27' Chance West Ham! Kepa is forced into a good reaction stop from Antonio, whose bullet header from Snodgrass' cross was going in. The first save of the game, and it comes at the end you wouldn't have expected.
43' Triple Chelsea chance! Kovacic lets fly with a low drive that Martin saves but fumbles, Martin gets up and saves the rebound from Giroud and the second follow-up from Pedro. Giroud was actually offside, but Martin didn't know that - great goalkeeping!
48' GOAL! Chelsea 0-1 West Ham - Cresswell scores! Well, well, well. Fornals picks out Cresswell on the overlap, and the English left-back cuts inside Reece James and tucks it inside the bottom corner!
60' Big save by Kepa! Balbuena's thumping header from Snodrass' corner is saved well again by Kepa, who has made two or three fine reaction saves today.
67' West Ham goal ruled out! Snodgrass sends a ball to the back post with his weaker right foot and Antonio bundles it in at the far post! But VAR check it and the goal is ruled out!
