A weird goal by Arthur Masuaku in the 87th minute gave West Ham a 3-2 win over Chelsea on Saturday and loosened the visitors’ grip on the Premier League lead.
Chelsea led twice through Thiago Silva’s header and a sublime goal from Mason Mount, but West Ham came back both times with a penalty from Manuel Lanzini and Jarrod Bowen’s low shot from the edge of the area.
And with just under four minutes remaining, Masuaku swung a speculative cross in from the left wing which veered toward goal and caught Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy by surprise. Mendy dove to keep the ball out but only managed to push it inside his own near post.
Is it a shot? Is it a cross? Either way it’s in the back of the net and West Ham are beating Chelsea 3-2!
