Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that West Ham United proved too much for Chelsea to handle in a high-scoring Premier League encounter at the London Stadium.

The Hammers overpowered the Blues in an encounter which ended 3-2 in favour of the hosts who denied the visitors a chance to further cement their Champions League qualification.
