LONDON (AP) Midfielder Eden Hazard scored the only goal as Chelsea beat West Ham 1-0 at Upton Park on Wednesday to maintain its five-point lead over Manchester City in the Premier League.

Brazilian midfielder Ramires was given too much space on the right and crossed for an unmarked Hazard to stoop and nod the ball home in the 22nd minute, although replays suggested he may have been a fraction offside.

The goal came midway through the first half in a fiercely contested London derby that saw six yellow cards.
