Arthur Masuaku's bizarre winning goal gave West ham all three points as they twice came from behind to beat league leaders Chelsea at the London Stadium.

Thiago Silva gave the Blues the lead just before the half hour mark, heading Mason Mount's corner past Lukasz Fabianski into the far corner.

The Hammers then equalised when Edouard Mendy fouled Jarrod Bowen in the box after a sloppy backpass from Jorginho. Manuel Lanzini, who was making his first league start of the season, dispatched from the penalty spot.

Chelsea regained the advantage just on the stroke of half time, with Mason Mount volleying past Fabianksi following a delightful ball from Hakim Ziyech.

The hosts drew level 10 minutes into the second half when Bowen's driven shot from the edge of the area beat Mendy in the Chelsea goal before Masuaku's sensational 87th minute winner.

The victory ensures that West Ham will spend another week inside the top four, while Chelsea face the prospect of dropping to third if Manchester City and Liverpool win later today.
