CHELSEA made sure they took home the derby dan bragging rights after beating West Ham 3-0.
Last season the Hammers did the double over the Blues but a header from Thiago Silva and Tammy Abraham double meant the Blues took home the points.
Chelsea had to come through some nervy moments but killed off the game late on.
Here's how Simon Phillips rated Frank Lampard's performers.
Edouard Mendy – 6
Pretty competent stuff on the ball from him, but he didn't have a lot to do with West Ham not having a shot on target.
Cesar Azpilicueta – 6
Sluggish on occasions but made a couple of important tackles and blocks as you'd expect from the captain.
Kurt Zouma – 6
He was pretty solid alongside Silva as usual, but he did make a few errors giving the ball away that could have been dangerous.
Thiago Silva – 9
Scored a bullet header in the first half and was colossal at the back for Chelsea making vital tackles and blocks in the penalty area. Chelsea's Man of the Match.
Ben Chilwell – N/A
He unfortunately rolled his ankle in a worrying looking injury after just ten minutes and had to come off.
Jorginho – 6
A few decent long passes but overall, he wasn't strong enough and gave away a few too many simple passes in dangerous areas.
Did the basics fine but doesn't bring enough to the table. Replaced by Kovacic on 65 minutes.
N'Golo Kante – 7
He was a bit quieter in the more advanced role tonight, but it was a usual hard-working performance from Kante.
Looked more settled when he moved deeper in the second half and made some good interceptions.
Mason Mount – 7
Rarely gives the ball away and is good at keeping possession for Chelsea. Solid and full of energy as always with some beautiful passes including the corner for Silva's header.
Timo Werner – 5
Once again, the German international missed a one on one with the keeper and should have scored, marking another poor night in a Chelsea shirt for an often-nervous looking Timo Werner.
Christian Pulisic – 8
He tried to make things happen and looked a threat when running with the ball, but he was often heavily marked by West Ham and a bit isolated out wide. Great run for Abraham's second goal.
Tammy Abraham – 8
He didn't really do a lot in the first half and failed to hold the ball up on a couple of occasions.
He was much better with his contributions in the second half though and scored two predatory goals late on to make sure of the win.
Emerson Palmieri for Chilwell (8 mins) – 6
He did the basics and did his job well, few times he refused to progress with the ball and advance and passed back too often.
Mateo Kovacic for Jorginho (65 mins) – 7
Injected some much-needed energy in midfield when he came on and made things happen.
Kai Havertz for Pulisic (83 mins) – N/A
