Chelsea draw 1-1 with West Ham

Chelsea drew 1-1 with West Ham at Stamford Bridge this afternoon missing a golden opportunity to move ahead of title rivals Liverpool at the top of the Premier League.

Chelsea put in a lacklustre first half performance and were punished for their complacency when Craig Bellamy put the Hammers ahead in the 33rd minute. Scolari put Drogba on for the second half and the decision paid off when the Ivory Coast striker combined with Lampard to set up Anelka for Chelsea's equaliser.

The Blues went close to winning the game late on but Robert Green in the West Ham goal produced a number of good saves to earn his side a point and ensure that Gianfranco Zola's return to Stamford Bridge was a happy one.
