Fiveteen years of pain at Stamford Bridge

West Ham hasn’t beaten Chelsea in over fifteen years at Stamford. on 28th September 2002, a Di Canio brace and Jermain Defoe first-half goal overcame a Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink penalty and a Zola second-half goal

The Hammers team that day consisted of David James, Tomas Repka, Gary Breen, Sebastian Schemmel, Scott Minto, Michael Carrick, Joe Cole, Steve Lomas, Trevor Sinclair, Paolo Di Canio and Frederic Kanoute with Defoe coming off on the bench.
The last draw at Stamford Bridge has come more recently in March 2016 when Carroll and Lanzini goals were cancelled out by a Cesc Fàbregas brace losing the lead in the last minute of normal time.
Our last win over Chelsea came last December at the London Stadium when a sixth-minute strike by Marko Arnautovic was all that separated the two London teams.   West Ham will be given hope by Spurs recent victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, the North London side had to wait 28 years for that victory.
