Chelsea vs West Ham LIVE: Stream, TV channel, team news as Blues look to bounce back from Arsenal loss

0

CHELSEA will face a second Premier League derby in London in a week, and they hope it goes better than the first.

The Blues were beaten 4-2 by Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday in a disastrous night that ended in an argument between captain Cesar Azpilicueta and a fan.

After this result, Thomas Tuchel’s men remain in third place and should still be able to claim a place in the Champions League unless they collapse at the end of the season.

    The game once again fell a bit flat.

    55, Suddenly it’s West Ham on the attack.

    Yarmolenko finds space and checks inside. The striker then dismisses Soucek whose shot is blocked from the edge of the area.

    Mendy had dived, meaning any West Ham player who played could have had a tap.

  • Chelsea 0-0 West Ham

    52, Chelsea finally woke up.

    A period of sustained pressure ends with Werner knocking on goal again, but once again Dawson gets his body in the way.

    48, Chelsea get up on the pitch, but there is so little movement.

    46, West Ham with best start.

    Benrahma dances past Chalobah down the left flank, before Azpilicueta loses his bearings as the ball flies overhead.

    Tuchel’s frustration continues as he fumes at his right arm.

    Chelsea start the second half. Can they step up?

  • Half Time – Chelsea 0-0 West Ham

    Michael Oliver has seen enough, like everyone else watching.

    A few half chances for Benrahma and Yarmolenko almost threatened Chelsea.

    The home team had full possession of the ball, but did very little.

    Hopefully much better in the second half, or even more if you fancy a nap!

  • Chelsea 0-0 West Ham

    45+2, Alonso sends the ball up in the air and offside for no apparent reason.

    It’s Sunday league stuff.

  • Chelsea 0-0 West Ham

    43, Cresswell swings a good cross from the free kick, but Havertz clears. Dawson then comes back, but Mendy catches.

  • Chelsea 0-0 West Ham

    42, Kante plays much more advanced in this Chelsea system.

    He loops one, but it’s simple for Fabianski who claims it.

    Alonso then crosses one into Havertz which makes contact, but cannot hit the target with its head.

  • Chelsea 0-0 West Ham

    35, Coufal takes a free kick in a good position, but fails to beat the first man. That roughly sums up this first half, devoid of quality.

    The full-back then sends a better ball into Soucek, but Chalobah gets up well to clear the header before winning a foul.

  • Chelsea 0-0 West Ham

    32, Fornals slips a ball to Benrahma in the box, but Yarmolenko crosses it and fires at himself, sending the ball wide. It wasn’t a bad effort, but it was perfectly organized for Benrahma who looks too polite to complain to his teammate.
