Chelsea drop first points of season in draw at West Ham

Chelsea drop first points of season in draw at West Ham

The Blues will take on West Ham at Wembley, then a Carabao fixture with Liverpool in midweek then a Premier League engagement at Stamford Bridge with Jurgen Klopp's side.

"We have to face a team, a very, very good team that has worked with the same coach four or five years, I don't know exactly", Sarri said in his post-match news conference.

Chelsea enjoyed more than 70 percent of possession in the first half but West Ham were unsafe when they were able to break out, Michail Antonio proving a real handful.

The Blues threw everything forward in pursuit of a winning goal, but Wets Ham hung to claim a vital point.

'It will be a really hard match, ' said Sarri.

"In this moment it's not a great problem because we have played only six or seven matches, but in two or three months maybe it could be a problem".

'We need to move the ball quicker, ' said Sarri.

Fellaini played 20 or 25 minutes, Fred played 60 minutes, Valencia also didn't play. "I think we are going to be a better team". We didn't have that. "I can't explain the difference of attitude because I never have a difference of attitude", he added.

The Italian manager whose side are unbeaten in the Premier League, rested Eden Hazard and David Luiz for Thursday night's opening Europa League win at PAOK in Greece.

The visitors began brightly but could have been behind in the 31st minute had goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga not denied Michail Antonio from four yards out.

As the sun came out at the London Stadium, Chelsea again established control and almost took the lead when N'Golo Kante headed wide. In the last two or three matches, we have done very well.

The derby against West Ham follows on from Chelsea's first European assignment of the campaign at PAOK. "We had big clear chances before they'd created even one chance".

Sarri did not expect such a string of results, but he knows in the Premier League danger lurks at every turn and is not underestimating a West Ham side he rates highly despite having just one win from five games.

Despite seeing little of the ball, West Ham had the best chance to win it as Robert Snodgrass picked out the unmarked Andriy Yarmolenko on 78 minutes, but the Ukrainian sent his header wide.
