EPL: Chelsea Defeat West Ham in Spicy London Derby

Chelsea today came from a goal down to win (2-1) over London rivals, West Ham United in the English Premier League (EPL).

West Ham’s scored after a good stint of pressure. Antonio scored for the Hammers after Declan Rice squared the ball to him for a simple tap-in.
