Maurizio sarri and Chelsea’s 100 percent start to the season finally came to an end with a stalemate against Manuel Pellegrini’s Westham.
Chelsea finally gave up their 100 percent start to the season under Maurizio sarri when they travelled to the London Stadium to face Manuel Pellegrini’s Westham United.
After five premier League game without a single loss or draw, the London blue outfits dropped two valuable points against Westham on Sunday as chelsea Talisman Eden Hazard was stifled out of the game.
Manuel Pellegrini seems to have Westham on the right path with a point against Chelsea just after their first premier league win last time.
Westham created the better chances and must have felt hard done as they missed out on several opportunities with ruthless striker Marko Arnautovic absent with a knee injury.
The draw sees chelsea drop to third place with Manchester city on second with a superior goal difference and Liverpool top and still the only team on a 100 percent run in the Premier League this season.
“West Ham were a very good team but we could have done better in the last 25 minutes of the first half. Generally we played well in the second half and as it is impossible to win every game, a point is okay.” Sarri said
“we must now play against a very good team in Liverpool who are a step ahead of us having worked with their manager longer.”
“It may be a spectacular but difficult match at the weekend.”
On the other hand, a point against the London blues was enough to ensure Westham do not return to the relegation zone as they sit 17th place just above relegation on four points.
What’s next ?
Chelsea and Maurizio Sarri travel to Anfield on Wednesday to face Liverpool in the carabao cup before welcoming the Merseyside reds to Stamford bridge on Saturday. Westham and pellegrini face Macclesfield in the cup before traveling to old Trafford on Saturday to face Manchester United.
