New coach, new players and record signing Caicedo’s Chelsea was on Sunday beaten by 10 man West Ham at London stadium.
The win which was the first one for West Ham saw new signing Ward-Prowse rise to the occasion in the 7th minute as Nayef Aguerd rose above Conor Gallagher to earn the Hammers the lead.
Nicolas Jackson gave the visitors hope but his strike was ruled for offside and had two other goal scoring opportunities go go above the target.

Dominant Chelsea were however rewarded before the end of the first half when Carney Chukwuemeka curved in from outside the penalty area and beat Alphonse Areola at the post.
Chelsea’s dominance continued in the second half and Raheem Sterling gave Pochettino’s side a penalty which was taken by Enzo Fernandez and blocked Areola.
Ward-Prowse slid one for Michail Antonio who beat the defense trap and beat Sanchez at the post to double the lead for the Hammers. Paqueta sealed the win for West Ham from the penalty spot after Aguerd was sent off after tackling Jackson.
The loss has left many questions than answers into the depth of Chelsea’s squad after spending millions to build a new team.
