Former West Ham United forward Tony Cottee claims that the Hammers were fortunate to claim a 1-1 draw against Chelsea in Sunday's Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge.
Former West Ham United forward Tony Cottee has suggested that the Hammers were fortunate to earn a 1-1 draw against Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.
A second-half goal from Javier Hernandez helped West Ham claim a point at Stamford Bridge, with the result taking the club six points clear of safety in the Premier League table.
David Moyes was full of praise for his team's performance, but Cottee has criticised the team's effort during the opening stages of the game in West London.
The 52-year-old is quoted by Sky Sports News as saying: "It's a fantastic point in terms of getting away from the relegation mire, but they didn't play well at all, certainly in the first half.
"They hung on in, battled away and Javier Hernandez came on and did what he's good at. They could've had a penalty, too."
West Ham are next in action when they host Stoke City on April 16.
