West Ham 2-1 Chelsea: Mourinho sent off

The striker came on as a second-half substitute and netted with a brilliant header to give the hosts all three points, with the Portuguese and Nemanja Matic both dismissed.

A late goal from Andy Carroll gave West Ham a monumental 2-1 win over champions Chelsea at Upton Park on Saturday.

The striker came off the bench to head home with 15 minutes left, adding to Mauro Zarate’s 17th minute strike.

The Blues were reduced to 10 men before half-time, with Nemanja Matic dismissed for a second bookable offence, while Jose Mourinho was also sent to the stands after disagreeing with a number of refereeing decisions.

Gary Cahill managed to equalise for the visitors in the 56th minute despite their numerical disadvantage, though it mattered little in the end.
