Emerson’s First Premier League Goal Denies Chelsea a Win

Saturday at London Stadium, Emerson’s first Premier League goal brought West Ham United back from behind to draw 1-1 with Chelsea.

The former Blues defender’s daring run to the far post was rewarded with a goal from close range in the 28th minute as the Hammers responded with grit to the visitors’ aggressive start.

Joo Félix opened the scoring after 16 minutes, while another of his goals was disallowed for offside, and teammate the assistant referee’s flag also denied Kai Havertz before the hosts touched the visitors.

Tomá Souek’s late goal was disallowed by a VAR ruling for Declan Rice’s offside. Nonetheless, David Moyes’s players did not buckle and were rewarded with a hard-fought point.

Chelsea Arrivals

West Ham may have been allowed to name an unchanged team for the first time in the Premier League this season, but Paquetá’s shoulder injury forced an early rearrangement. Tomá Souek entered in his stead. Yet, Chelsea was already in the lead at that point and did not have to wait long to score.

Félix, who had previously had a goal disallowed for offside, snuck into space inside the box after 16 minutes to meet Enzo Fernández’s cross with a perfectly timed move and an equally skilled side-footed strike.

Six minutes later, Mykhailo Mudryk assisted Kai Havertz in getting around Lukasz Fabiaski and scoring, but the offside flag again saved West Ham.

The Hammers were in danger of sleepwalking into an impossible situation in the early kickoff. Still, following a shaky start against Newcastle the week prior, they began to show hints that a recurrence could be on the horizon around the 25-minute mark.

As Kepa Arrrizabalaga made a fantastic stop from Michail Antonio in the 28th minute, the home team pressed for an equalizer due to the pressure exerted by the opposition.

Marc Cucurella committed an error due to Vladimir Coufal’s pressure at left-back, allowing Thilo Kehrer to pass back to the No. 5 with ample room to cross the field. His pass was deflected by Jarrod Bowen, allowing Emerson to sneak in behind the defense and score past Arrizabalaga.

West Ham Vs. Chelsea

It was now a much more level contest, with West Ham resolutely denying clear scoring opportunities to their opponents.

Nevertheless, the Irons believed they had won the game with eight minutes remaining when Declan Rice headed an Emerson free kick into the goal. Arrizibalaga dived to make a stop, but Souek was there to pounce on the loose ball.

However, the home crowd’s jubilation was cut short by a lengthy VAR review revealing that Rice was offside.

After Souek blocked Conor Gallagher’s shot, Chelsea appealed for a handball, but neither referee Craig Pawson nor VAR Neil Swarbrick noticed a violation, and the match ended 1-1 in east London.

Transfers: West Ham United Has Signed Striker Danny Ings

West Ham United is pleased to announce the signing of experienced Premier League striker Danny Ings. Ings, a senior England international, has joined the Hammers for an unknown cost from Aston Villa until the summer of 2025.

All paperwork was completed before the lunchtime deadline for the player to be eligible for their Premier League matches against other teams. The 30-year-old, who will bring depth and quality to the Irons’ team, is excited about the opportunity.

Manager David Moyes is excited to have the veteran striker join his squad and add to his offensive options.

Danny Ings, who has 68 Premier League goals in 188 games, scored at a rate of more than one in every three for Burnley, Liverpool, Southampton, and Aston Villa, with a single-season high of 22 for the Saints in 2019/20.

The hardworking Winchester-born striker has scored regularly wherever he has played, amassing around 125 goals in his career and scoring for England in a friendly win over Wales at Wembley in October 2020.

Ings, an efficient and intelligent player with exceptional technical ability, excels at regaining control in the final third and racing with the ball at his feet.

Ings began his career with nearby AFC Bournemouth after growing up in the village of Netley on the Southampton Sea. A fruitful period at Burnley resulted in promotion to the Premier League, a move to Liverpool, and a senior England debut against Lithuania in a UEFA European Championship qualification in 2015.

Ings joined Southampton in 2018 and had three productive seasons on the south coast, scoring 46 goals in 100 appearances for the Saints over three seasons, including 41 in the Premier League. In 2020, he will get two more England caps against Iceland and Wales.

With seven goals this season, he joins the Hammers as Aston Villa’s leading scorer. Everyone at West Ham United would like to welcome Danny and his family to east London and wish him the best of luck in his future with the Claret and Blue.
