Sarri not happy at Chelsea result against ‘very good’ West Ham

Maurizio Sarri has said he is not happy with the result after watching his side surrender their 100% start to the season with a 0-0 draw against West Ham.

Both teams had a number of chances to win the game, with both ‘keepers being forced to make some good saves, with an Andriy Yarmolenko effort in the second half being the most clear-cut of the game, although the West Ham forward failed to guide his header on target for what would have been a certain goal.

Chelsea finished the game strongly, but were unable to break down a resilient Hammers defence, leaving Maurizio Sarri frustrated with the result.

“We could have done better in the first half, especially in the last 20 minutes of the first half,” Sarri told Sky Sports.

“We have played well in the second half, very well in the last 20 minutes. We knew that West Ham are a very good team and that today was [going to be] a very difficult match and so we are not happy for the result.”

“As I said, maybe [we could have been better in] the last 20, 25 minutes of the first half, but they are really a very good team, and now after they have won away against Everton, they gain confidence, so I knew that today was a very difficult match.”
