West Ham 1-0 Chelsea: David Moyes relieved after first win

The forward, who has scored 10 goals since his summer move from Real Madrid, played the full 90 minutes on Saturday as Chelsea slipped to a 1-0 defeat at London rivals West Ham.

Moyes looks likely to stick with Adrian for Wednesday's game against Arsenal but a continued lack of first-team action will leave Hart in danger of losing out on a place in England's World Cup squad. "That's why it wasn't an easy decision".

Jamie Redknapp believes West Ham have created a new "problem" for themselves after their shock victory against Chelsea, but slammed them for not playing that way "week in, week out". "We've been in good form recently which is why it's so disappointing". He wasn't happy. I told him the reason why and that happens at clubs all over the country.

"Part of that is relaying the messages to your players, when I came in I said I will tell you straight, I wouldn't kid anybody".

Many Hammers fans have been critical of Hart's performances in the 14 Premier League games he has played with West Ham conceding 32 goals so far this season. Pearce has however insisted that the 30-year-old is not sulking and is taking things the right way.

However, Moyes hinted Hart could find himself back into the starting XI, given West Ham are still competing on three fronts.

"If it is the goalkeeper we highlight it a lot more than an outfield player but Joe is acutely aware that he has to fight to get back in the team again and he will do that".

Five of the visitors' nine league away goals so far arrived in a single match against an Everton team in poor form under the doomed Ronald Koeman, while they have failed to strike a few times in any of their other seven games on the road. The best bet for this game is the under 2.5 goals since Huddersfield might just park the bus. We must pay great attention to the counter-attack because they have fast players.
