The Blues’ winning streak comes to an end following a goalless draw in the London derby between West Ham United and Chelsea at Olympic Stadium. Chelsea saw plenty of the ball possession in the first half, when keeper Kepa was crucial as he saved a powerful effort delivered from Antonio. Hazard, Rudiger and Giroud had three chances, with Fabianski ready to collect with no concern.
Alvaro Morata and the Belgian star went close to opening the score in the second period, before West Ham winger Yarmolenko missed a certain goal as his header from a seven-yards out went wide. Also Hammers’ goalkeeper Fabianski produced more than a great save to deny Chelsea’s advantage. The Poland international spreads himself when Ross Barkley – who came off the bench in the second half to replace Mateo Kovacic – whipped the ball into the bottom corner.
Chelsea fail to get a win for the first time in their first six Premier League games of the 2018/19 campaign. Liverpool are now top of the table with 18 points, just 2 ahead of the Blues and Man City.
