  • Description

    Chelsea, playing on their home ground at Stamford Bridge, pitted their skills against West Ham in a derby fixture in London on Saturday (19th December). Peter Osgood found form again for Chelsea to score twice in four minutes, and West Ham's Frank Lampard closed the margin with a fine goal in the 41st minute of the first half. The final score was 2-1 to Chelsea.

    Although taking the initiative for most of the game, Chelsea had their share of good fortune as both Osgood's goals arose from lucky situations. The first came as Harries stuck out his foot to halt a dribbling rush by Ayris. The ball rebounded 35 yards to the feet of Peter Osgood who had simply to confront and beat the keeper. The second stroke of good luck for Chelsea occurred after they had taken a corner. After a hectic scramble in the goalmouth the ball dropped at the feet of Osgood who took advantage of an unsighted keeper.

    Five minutes before the end of the first half West Ham rallied well to force a corner on the Chelsea goal-line. A shrewd signal to Frank Lampard by West Ham (and England) skipper Bobby Moore saw Lampard move clear of the defenders, and hammer home a low 35-yard shot from the cross. Lampard later left the field injured.

    As a result of the game Chelsea has 29 League points, and West Ham.....well down the table.....15
