Manuel Pellegrini rues wasteful West Ham after Chelsea stalemate

Manuel Pellegrini rues wasteful West Ham after Chelsea stalemate

West Ham were able to hold Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea scoreless, with the London sides facing off in a derby match at the Olympic Stadium on Sunday. Less if you include the worldwide breaks.

"We know that many teams now are going to play against us this way, with a low block and trying to play on the counter-attack, so there was not a lot of space, but it is up to us to try to find a solution".

Pedro was Chelsea's only significant absentee, thanks to the shoulder injury he picked up in the final seconds of the midweek win over PAOK, but he was missed.

There is no doubt among Chelsea supporters that under Maurizio Sarri's management their team is playing a more entertaining and enterprising brand of football.

"We need to move the ball quicker I think", said Sarri, who took over as manager in the off-season after Antonio Conte's departure. Few would argue that he is the best in the Premier League at what he does.

Sarri bemoaned his side's failure to kill the game off and said West Ham - who lost their first four matches of the season - were tough opponents.

"It was very hard to play inside", Sarri said after the game.

"It's important for me to showcase my talent, obviously previous year I played in defence and now in midfield, I'm just cherishing it". Eden Hazard was rested in midweek after complaining of tiredness but the Belgian worldwide is back in attack this afternoon.

"West Ham are a very good team and after they won at Everton they had confidence". Better in the second half.

"They were cutting out very well every pass for [Olivier] Giroud, so we needed two wingers, I think".

Speaking ahead of Sunday's Premier League trip to West Ham, Wednesday's Carabao Cup clash at Liverpool and the Reds' league visit to Stamford Bridge next Saturday, Sarri concurred with Chelsea predecessors Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte on domestic fixtures which surround European games. I hope we can keep this momentum and keep winning games.

The Hammers also had two very good chances in as many minutes towards the end of the first half.
