The Hammers became the first team this season to take points off Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea as they played out a goalless draw in the London Stadium. "Hazard in the last 25 minutes did very well, more on the right than the left, but it was very hard for the striker and the two wingers".

"We are the team that have won more titles in recent years in England", the defender told reporters in the mixed zone postmatch.

"Pedro is very important for us". In March or April, it could be a problem, but not now.

Sarri is not convinced Chelsea's Europa League trip to PAOK had anything to do with Sunday's sluggish performance, though he does not see why the Premier League can not do them a favour with match scheduling.

Who will come out on top in the battle of the managers Manuel Pellegrini or Maurizio Sarri?

'They are a step forward of us at this moment, ' said Sarri when asked about Liverpool.

Below are some of their reactions to the West Ham man's performance. In the last two or three matches we've done very well.

Theresa May to say she won't change tack on Brexit
Mrs May called on the European Union to provide counter proposals. There are fears that frontier checks would disrupt trade.

Federer, Zverev put Europe on top at Laver Cup
Djokovic put his head in his hands as soon as his shot struck Federer in the back, and had an embarrassed look on his face. Djokovic, the current Wimbledon and US Open Champion, then rubbed the waist of his partner as everyone was left smiling.

Earl Thomas out Friday for personal reasons, may not play Sunday
Carson had 14 carries for 50 yards in the first half, and Seattle had 18 rushing plays on offense compared to 20 passing attempts. The bad news was that the wide receivers, specifically Brandon Marshall, had a hard time hanging on to Russell Wilson's passes.

That chance breathed new life into the home crowd and the players and Antonio drew a smart save from Kepa Arrizabalaga in the West Ham goal just two minutes later after a fine run from Andriy Yarmolenko.

West Ham took on Chelsea today in the lunch time kick off this evening and managed to keep the Blues scoreless in a 0-0 draw at the London Stadium.

"We were working hard with every ball in defence and attack - maybe I'd prefer to have more possession".

Next up for Chelsea FC is their trip to Liverpool FC for their third-round League Cup tie against the Reds. It was very hard to play inside.

However, before that eagerly anticipated duel, the two clubs go head-to-head in the League Cup on Wednesday which promises to be a cracker under the Anfield lights.

"At that moment of the game Giroud is a great reference point for the teammates, but they were closing those pass trajectories, so I chose to bet on Morata, who is a more dynamic player".

'Maybe I will have to change 11 players, maybe only five, ' said Sarri. "We hope to have him back by the end of the week", Sarri said.
