Maybe in a year Chelsea will be at Liverpool's level - Sarri

Maurizio Sarri has guided Chelsea to five wins from five matches in the Premier League

Maurizio Sarri has guided Chelsea to five wins from five matches in the Premier League

By no means were West Ham exceptional on Sunday, but in recent years they have made a habit of caving in on themselves and looking lacking the bite often shown by captain Mark Noble.

Klopp's team are the only side in the league who have made a flawless start to the 2018/2019 season.

"So for us I think it's a bit early", Sarri added. "He can be a very good centre-back and a holding midfielder and he has taken his chance".

Chelsea will face Liverpool twice in the next seven days, first in the EFL Cup and then in the Premier League next weekend. "It's OK, one point today".

Manuel Pellegrini rued West Ham's wasted chances against Chelsea - and admitted Andriy Yarmolenko's header seemed easier to score than miss.

Chelsea hogged the ball in the first half but West Ham were unsafe when they were able to break out, Michail Antonio proving a real handful.

After a cagey opening spell, Chelsea established control but the home side could have taken a lead against the run of play just before the half hour. "West Ham is a good team", Sarri said after the game.

The Cardinals Threw Rookie Josh Rosen Into The Fire Against The Bears
Josh Rosen made his debut Sunday for the Cardinals, although it didn't come until late, and it wasn't enough to save the game. In order to grab their first victory of the season, the Cardinals must show great improvement in many areas.


Despite spending much of the first half under pressure, West Ham actually crafted the better chances, but Michail Antonio - starting in place of the injured Marko Arnautovic - squandered two presentable opportunities.

As the sun came out at the London Stadium, Chelsea again established control and almost took the lead when N'Golo Kante headed wide.

Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored goals within three minutes of each other early in the second half at Emirates Stadium.

The match starts at 13:30 on 23 September 2018.

Eden Hazard, Willian and Olivier Giroud were left frustrated and it was substitute Alvaro Morata who came closest to scoring, but the Spaniard was denied by Lukasz Fabianski from close range. Everton has won only one of its six league games, losing the last two.

It would probably be slightly misguided for West Ham to go all out attack, but hopefully they'll commit men forward when they get the chance, and that should make for a decent game.
