  • West Ham Chelsea

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri says that he is satisfied with his side's goalless draw against West Ham United, despite seeing their flawless start to the season ended.

Hazard told Sarri after returning from the September global break with Belgium and his hat-trick in the 4-1 win over Cardiff that he was exhausted.

"I see Declan working every day and I know the way he does it", Pellegrini told reporters after the game.

Chelsea were not many pundits' tip for the Premier League title before this season started.

But the former Napoli boss warned: "As you know, for an English team, it is very hard to play in the Europa League with the Premier League rules".

"It was too slow, moving the ball to create the gaps or our movements without the ball, and that is why we couldn't score".

Problems arrived against West Ham, and in the end a draw was the fairest outcome between two teams undermined by mistakes at both ends.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Premier League giants Chelsea kicked off their Europa League campaign on a winning note following their 1-0 win over PAOK Thessaloniki FC at the Toumba Stadium. He remains without a Premier League goal since the start of May. Eden Hazard has let the way, notching five goals through five games.

The inherent danger in Chelsea's expansive passing game was laid bare whenever they lost the ball against West Ham, with routine interceptions often ending in Felipe Anderson and Yarmolenko running directly at the centre-backs. That said, should the Italian ignore what appears to be blindingly obvious and waste the true talent of a player of Kante's calibre and results take a turn for the worse he will have only himself to blame for the criticism. Better in the second half. "We played a good tactical game, defended well and created some chances".

Chelsea have another chance to knock Liverpool off the top when they play them at Stamford Bridge on Saturday - three days after the clubs meet in the League Cup at Anfield. Everton has won only one of its six league games, losing the last two.
