Chelsea produced a sparkling attacking performance to beat West Ham 5-0 and raise further questions over David Moyes’ future at the club.

This week the Hammers opened talks with unemployed Julen Lopetegui over Moyes’ takeover when the Scot’s contract expires in June. If he sought support from his players at Stamford Bridge, it never materialized.

A rejuvenated Chelsea were on a roll as they recorded a second convincing home win in three days, and five goals hardly flattered them.

Cole Palmer scored the 21st league goal of the season when he slotted home the first inside 15 minutes, while Conor Gallagher and star player Noni Madueke sealed the win before half-time.

West Ham did hit the crossbar twice in the first half through Jarrod Bowen but were miserable defensively and were caught out again in the second period when Madueke was on the pitch for Nicolas Jackson to add a fourth two minutes later in the second period add.

Jackson doubled his tally after yet another break at Chelsea, ten minutes from time, when a VAR check overturned an initial offside flag against the Senegal striker, in a final painful moment of a miserable afternoon for Moyes and West Ham, as they sent five in three games for the second time.
