Cheikhou Kouyate opened the scoring for West Ham against Chelsea in the FA Cup

Antonio Conte paid the price for making seven changes to the team that beat Manchester United 4-0 as Cheikhou Kouyate and Edimilson Fernandes booked the Hammers a spot in the last eight.

Kouyate opened the scoring for the hosts with a header from the edge of the box on 11 minutes before Fernandes doubled the lead with a drilled effort straight after the half-time break.

Chelsea threatened to mount a comeback as Conte threw on his big guns but had to wait until the final kick of the game for Gary Cahill’s consolation.
