West Ham's fine form continued with a 2-1 win over Chelsea.

West Ham United's superb start to the season continued on Saturday with an outstanding 2-1 home win over Jose Mourinho's Chelsea.

Slaven Bilic's men have beaten a number of top clubs already this season, having secured wins over Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City.

Bilic added another scalp on Saturday by leading his side to victory over Chelsea, with Mauro Zarate giving the Hammers a first-half lead from the edge of the box, before Nemanja Matic was sent off for two bookable offences.

Gary Cahill then equalised for Chelsea after the break, but Andy Carroll's outstanding header from Aaron Cresswell's cross gave West Ham the win, sending Upton Park in to delirium.

The atmosphere at Upton Park was one of the best in recent memory, and the players showed their passion during and after the game, as seen below.

The photos show manager Slaven Bilic celebrate the victory, whilst star players such as Zarate, Carroll, Dimitri Payet and Adrian were also involved in the celebrations.

It's unclear how far West Ham can go this season, but as they currently sit in the top four, fans are dreaming of a fairytale final season at Upton Park before the move to the Olympic Stadium next summer - and more performances like this will give them hope of European qualification.
