Antonio Rudiger: 'Same old story for Chelsea'

TURIN ITALY- APRIL 03 Juan Cuadrado of Juventus FC is challenged by Mateo Kovacic of Real Madrid during the UEFA Champions League Quarter Final Leg One match between Juventus and Real Madrid at Allianz Stadium

But former Manchester United striker Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez, who scored several goals for the Red Devils against Chelsea, came on in the second half to score the equaliser for the Hammers.

"Now I hope lightning can strike twice and we can do it again against Chelsea".

Victor Moses is stored deep in Chelsea fans' bad books for another disappointing individual display in the 1-1 draw with West Ham on Sunday.

In the first game after Chelsea legend Ray Wilkins' death, Rudiger lamented the fact that they couldn't give him the send off he deserved and insisted his side need to get back to basics after falling 10 points behind Tottenham Hotspur in the race for a spot in the Champions League.

"The FA Cup is a massive trophy with a lot of history but it's not enough for us", the 28-year-old Spanish defender told BBC Match of the Day. Many games where we put in a good performance, creating many chances to score, but we are not clinical.

Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 11 Premier League home matches against West Ham (W8, D3).

Victory at Stamford Bridge would ease their relegation fears further, and see the Hammers do the double over their London rivals following a 1-0 home win in December.

They could suffer back-to-back league defeats at Stamford Bridge for the first time since November 2011 (against Arsenal and then Liverpool).

Translation: Javier Hernández has scored 9 goals in 14 games played against Chelsea.

Swansea City and Southampton have also shown interest in Fredericks while Fulham, who retain hope of promotion to the Premier League, have held initial talks about extending his contract. They last lost four in a row between May and September 2016, a sequence which includes a 2-1 defeat at Chelsea.

West Ham's struggles have come as a surprise to the Cassino-born player, although he admits the squad David Moyes is working with is probably too thin.

Moyes is winless in his last 29 away league games against "big six" opposition (D9, L20).
