Chelsea 1-1 West Ham: Victor Moses Punished


Chelsea's failure to beat lowly London rivals West Ham United in the Premier League yesterday summed up their season, according to manager Antonio Conte.

Javier Hernandez's ninth goal against the Blues cancelled out Cesar Azpilicueta's scruffy opener.

There was still time for Stephens and Elneny to receive straight red cards within a few minutes of each other for raising their hands.

How David Moyes's side was even in a position to salvage something from the game will give Antonio Conte sleepless nights, given his side's total dominance until that point. We begged for the goal, " Rudiger told Sky Sports (via Football Italia).

The 1-1 draw in a match Chelsea dominated left them 10 points outside the top four places that will guarantee entry to next season's Champions League. "When this happens with regularity, it means you have a problem". We must win this game.

"You need the desire to score a second goal, a third, a fourth".

"It's not easy to explain, I don't understand after we go 1-0 up why we always drop off and let our opponents come onto us".

"It was a good weekend for us because they were singing my name, then I scored and I could celebrate with them".

"First half I thought we were poor given the standards we are trying to set at this club, but it is important we were able to stay strong and fight back in a really hard venue".

Liverpool: Karius, Clyne , van Dijk, Lovren , Klavan, Henderson (c), Wijnaldum, Milner, Mane, Ings and Solanke. But it wasn't all negative for the Reds , with several stars producing strong displays across the pitch.

"We must be frustrated with this game, for the final result", Conte said.

Chelsea searched for a rescuing quest and brought on Olivier Giroud with time drastically against them. "From where we are I want to try and push us on".

He said: "Joe is having a bit of a sticky period, an inconsistent period at this moment in time, but he has got bundles of experience".

DECLAN RICE reckons he made his point as West Ham claimed one at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

"Thankfully we stuck at it and got something out of it".

"That will be good for Joe".

A hopeful ball into the box from Mark Noble was only partially cleared by Cahill, and after Marko Arnautovic hooked his cross to the edge of the box, the centre-half was unable to block Hernandez's shot that flew beyond Thibaut Courtois.

"When we came in, we asked everybody to show us what you can do".

Within five minutes the hosts were ahead.
