West Ham had seen the results go their way in the relegation battle this weekend as Southampton and Stoke both lost out to North London sides and travelled to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea with the ability to approach the game as something of a free hit.
If getting anything out of the trip to face London rivals Chelsea was a bonus then a point, garnered after enduring no shortage of pressure in both halves, was extremely welcome in their fight against relegation.
Joe Hart’s inclusion did not necessarily please West Ham fans prior to kick off but the England international kept his side in the game at times.
Substitute Javier Hernandez grabbed an equaliser late on and Chelsea’s current fragility meant that they were unable to muster much by the way of a cohesive response.
We’ve taken a look at the best of the reaction from the Hammers fans who can sense survival on the horizon…
Fair play boys, good result and a massive point. Well done to the boys for showing the fight and desire needed. Wish Moyes would have gone for all 3 at the end, but I can't complain much. Great stuff. #COYI
