Chelsea secured a hard-fought 2-1 win over West Ham in a London derby, breaking a 13-year-old Premier League record.
The Blues came from behind to take all 3 points at Stamford Bridge, after an incredible Ben Chilwell super sub performance, late on.
An insane finish just minutes after replacing Marc Cucurella and a well-placed assist for Kai Havertz for the winning goal moments later, marked the Englishman’s monstrous contributions.
However, the win vs West Ham at Stamford Bridge just broke a previously held 13-years record in the Premier League!

It marks the first time Chelsea is coming from a goal down in the second half to win a match in the Premier League, since January 2009 against Stoke City.
Hopefully, this is the start of a new beginning as a team going forward.
