Christian Pulisic spares stuttering Chelsea against West Ham

Craig Dawson had enjoyed virtually the perfect afternoon. West Ham’s one fit centre-back had been a man mountain, everything thrown at him repelled. The “Ballon D’Orson” flag his own fans had put together was looking apt.Then substitute Romelu Lukaku burst through and, out of desperation, Dawson grabbed his shirt. Down he went, and the penalty was given. A yellow turned red after Michael Oliver consulted the video monitor. Dawson trudged off forlorn. It was not what he deserved.
