Sports Chelsea vs West Ham: Conte Reacts To Disappointing 1-1 Draw

Antonio Conte felt Chelsea's 1-1 draw with West Ham summed up their frustrating season, admitting the result severely dented their chances of a top four finish in the Premier League.

Javier Hernandez punished Chelsea's wastefulness with 17 minutes remaining after Cesar Azpilicueta's first-half opener for Chelsea.

Five years after being released by Chelsea, the Republic of Ireland defender helped West Ham pick up a crucial point in a spirited 1-1 draw.

A tribute to the late Ray Wilkins was held before the match.

The Blues paid homage to former captain and assistant coach Ray Wilkins, who tragically passed away on Thursday.

"We all want to play more than 20 minutes".

All those near-misses came back to haunt Chelsea in the 73rd minute.

Yesterday's strike at Stamford Bridge was his eighth of the campaign thus far, and it was arguably his most important goal of the season.

Joe Hart retains his place between the sticks for West Ham. Since my first day here, they have supported me well.

As the Austrian went to pull the trigger from an acute angle inside the box, Kante slid in to win the ball. It was, incredibly, the sixth goal he's scored off the bench against Chelsea in his career.

All possible London derbies have finished for Chelsea's season, and the record hasn't looked great.

Hernandez continued to be a nuisance, chasing a long punt forward to earn his side a free-kick 40 yards from goal, but it only led to a quick Chelsea counter-attack. "West Ham defended really well, so it's a shame". "When this happens with regularity, it means you have a problem". Instead, they sit closer to Burnley in seventh rather than Spurs in fourth.

But next Monday they host fellow strugglers Stoke knowing a defeat would drag them right back into trouble ahead of a tricky run-in including fixtures against Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City. None of these will be easy games for the Hammers.

West Ham team: Hart, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Rice, Noble, Zabaleta, Kouyate, Masuaku, Arnautovic, Joao Mario, Fernandes. Morata powered a free header over the bar from an out-swinging Willian corner, and on the hour-mark the Spaniard was perhaps harshly called offside when finishing off a swift counter-attack.

Chelsea's swagger initially continued after the interval, with Willian dragging a shot just wide and Morata heading over from a corner. We are creating a good spirit in the team, we stick together and today was a good example of that.

Another superb diving save from man-of-the-match Hart denied substitute Olivier Giroud in the closing stages but ultimately neither side could find the winning goal.

"I'm pleased for him because he has been through hard times", said Wenger.

It was a gaffe-strewn performance in general from the Gunners, although that seems permissible given that they had made seven changes to the side since thrashing CSKA Moscow in Thursday's Europa League quarter-final. "But I think this game describes very clearly our season". The club should be more anxious of dropping farther than fifth.
