Chelsea 2-0 West Ham United: Stamford Bridge, Fulltime

Chelsea's midfield generals provided the means for a much-needed Blues victory as goals from Frank Lampard and Eden Hazard saw Rafa Benitez's men through to a 2-0 victory over West Ham.

Although the visitors created their share of attacking chances on the day, it's perhaps Chelsea that can be disappointed at not coming away with more goals in hand as they continue their pursuit of third spot.

Chelsea Starting XI: Cech, Azpilicueta, A.Cole, Luiz, Cahill, Ramires, Lampard (C), Mata, Moses, Hazard, Ba

Chelsea Subs: Turnbull, Ivanovic, Bertrand, Terry, Mikel, Oscar, Torres

Scorers: Lampard (19'), Hazard (50')

West Ham Starting XI: Jaaskelainen, Demel, Reid (c), Collins, O'Brien, O'Neil, Diame, Collison, Jarvis, Vaz Te, Carroll

West Ham Subs: Spiegel, McCartney, Pogatetz, Tomkins, Taylor, C.Cole, Chamakh
