Conte bemused by Chelsea's failure to beat West Ham

Declan Rice of West Ham United celebrates his side's win following the Carabao Cup Fourth Round match between Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United at Wembley Stadium

Conte had admitted losing at home to Tottenham for the first time in 28 years last weekend was a huge setback in Chelsea's bid to salvage a dismal campaign by qualifying for the Champions League.

"In the Premier League you never know, they were playing well so it could have got away from us, but we defended well and Joe Hart made a couple of outstanding saves".

"Joe Hart probably needed a game like that". Hart, who will be itching to get himself in England's World Cup squad, got down brilliantly to get a finger-tip on Giroud's header, pushing it onto the post and out for a corner.

"Sorry to Chelsea fans", Hernandez said with a laugh. "Sometimes these things happen. I'm so glad he got fit for us and got the decisive goal".

"It certainly is a prized point for us, we were playing against a team who are quality, and have some terrific attacking players who played well".

But after the game, the Mexican said: "I'm [personally] very focused on West Ham at the moment - that's my job and that's what I'm here to do, to fight for this team".

China will reduce trade barriers, Trump says
It has threatened to respond proportionately and "counterattack with great strength" if the US makes good on the latest proposal. Still, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said the threat of tariffs is not merely a negotiating tactic with China.

"We have a point and now we have a final against Stoke next week".

After the game the West Ham manager admitted that this was a crucial point and lauded the performance of his often criticised 'keeper. Javier Hernandez came off the bench to score the equalizer for the Hammers to cap off a memorable night for the visitors.

"We dominated the game and created many, many chances to score but we didn't and that explains our season".

The hosts continued to pressure the Hammers for their first goal in this meeting but the visitors were defensively on point as they resisted all advances from Chelsea.

"We're moving in the right direction, but you've seen this league; one day you've got a big smile on your face and the next you don't".
