  1. Goodbye

    Chelsea 2-1 West Ham

    The Antonio Conte era begins with a win for Chelsea through Diego Costa's last minute strike.

    Have a read of Chris Osborne's match report

    We are back on Tuesday for some Champions League qualifying play-off action.

    Until then.

  2. Ayew assessed tomorrow

    West Ham United

    More from West Ham boss Slaven Bilic: "Diego Costa had already been booked. it was not reckless or deliberate but it was quite late, the ball had come. He could have been booked again and so a red card. I am not frustrated because of that, I am frustrated because of the late goal.

    "We have to wait on Andre Ayew, it is a thigh injury and we will find out after the scan tomorrow."

  3. Chelsea were the better side

    West Ham United

    West Ham boss Slaven Bilic: "When you lose a game and concede late, of course you are disappointed. Apart from the first 15 minutes til we equalised, they were much better than us. They were better on the ball, in pressing and much more aggressive than us. They had the individual class of Eden Hazard, Diego Costa and Willian. 

    "We came back into the game, we played well after 1-1 but we made the mistake in the middle of the park. We gave the ball away and conceded a cheap goal."

  4. Should Costa have received a second yellow?

    Chelsea 2-1 West Ham


    Chelsea boss Antonio Conte on Sky Sports: "I didn’t see the situation. I saw him put the pressure on the keeper and then try to stop. In my opinion I think the referee took the right decision."

  5. Hazard can improve

    Chelsea 2-1 West Ham


    Chelsea boss Antonio Conte on Sky Sports: "Eden played a good game today with a great ability. Hazard, Willian are players with great attitude with the other players. I am very pleased with Hazard's performance but he knows he can improve a lot."

  6. 'We know we can improve'

    Chelsea 2-1 West Ham


    Chelsea boss Antonio Conte on Sky Sports: "I think the team played a good game with a great intensity and spirit. It is important to find the right spirit and intensity, we know we can improve and we must improve a lot, but today I am pleased for my players.

    "The victory is deserved and now we have to prepare for the next game. From tomorrow we have to think to the next game."

  7. Post update

    Chelsea 2-1 West Ham

    Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is asked about Diego Costa's challenge on Adrian.

    "I did not see it," he says.

    I'm sure that phrase is stolen from another manager in London.

    Full quotes to come...

  8. Post update

    Antonio Conte is going to endear himself to the Chelsea fans with his touchline antics, not sure oppositon supporters will be too happy with it though.

  10. 'We played like tigers'

    Chelsea 2-1 West Ham


    Chelsea's man of the match Eden Hazard on Sky Sports: "It was good to be back on the pitch in front of our own supporters. We did very well and we played 90 minutes like tigers.

    "It’s not every year I score in my first game. Last season is finished. We are looking forward to the future. We want to bring a lot of emotion to the fans."

  11. Post update

    Plenty of people unhappy on Twitter that Diego Costa was allowed to stay on the pitch after his "tackle" on Adrian.

    He was lucky to still be on to score the winner, to be honest.

  12. Get Involved


    Daniel Tettey: Costa should have been off. Ref decisions affect games.

    STONEY: if that's the standard of officiating we can look forward to this season there's going to be plenty to talk about.

    Mr Robot: New season same old ridiculous decisions going for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Year after year

  13. Winning start vital

    Chelsea 2-1 West Ham


    Chelsea captain John Terry: "It is very important for us to get off to get off to a good start. We did not start off or finish well last year. That is the fight and commitment we want. We dug in in the London derby and that is great for the management.

    "Eden Hazard is up there with the best in the world. We relied on him too much last year, he cannot do it on his own.

    "To ourselves, to our supporters and to our friends and family, we will slowly get there. The consistency is important, the winning start was vital."

    Former England defender on BBC Radio 5 live

    It is clear to see how well Eden Hazard and Diego Costa have played, they have started the season very well

    It is a good start for the manager, the fans are right behind him and you can see the galvanising effect it has.

    West Ham worked hard, Dimitri Payet coming on improved them but there was only one winner in Chelsea today.

    Oscar got the message tonight, he was in and out of possession but there was so much tenacity to his game. Every time N'Golo Kante made a challenge, the crowd gave a big cheer.

    Antonio Conte celebrated like he won the Premier League, it is infectious. Chelsea already look better.

    West Ham almost get an equaliser as Andy Carroll shepherds the ball into the path of Enner Valencia, but his strike from close range is saved by Thibaut Courtois.

    Oh, referee Anthony Taylor has found his cards.

    He has given a yellow to Pedro for a late sliding tackle on Winston Reid.
