West Ham sends Chelsea home


West Ham advanced to the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup after beating Chelsea 2-1 at the London Stadium on Wednesday.

Cheikhou Kouyate put the Hammers ahead in the 11th minute with a brilliant header from Mark Noble's cross.

Michy Batshuayi missed a good chance to level late in the first half for Chelsea, who made seven changes from their win over Manchester United on Sunday.

Edimilson Fernandes then made it 2-0 shortly after the break and all the visitors could muster in response was an injury-time consolation from Gary Cahill.

That goal came shortly after some disturbances in the crowd, with missiles thrown and fighting breaking out.
