Chelsea suffer fresh Champions League blow

Chelsea suffer fresh Champions League blow

Antonio Conte slammed his misfiring Chelsea stars as their hopes of a top-four finish in the Premier League suffered a potentially fatal blow in a 1-1 draw against West Ham on Sunday.

He said: "On the day, we had a game plan and we stuck to it".

The Mexican striker boasts an extraordinary record of scoring off the bench against Chelsea, this is the sixth time he has done it in his career and the fourth time at Stamford Bridge.

"I'm focused on West Ham, not England, that's my job", Hart told Sky Sports.

For much of the first half, the east Londoners did look second best, with Chelsea seemingly more risky with every attack.

And but for a combination of profligate finishing and excellent goalkeeping from West Ham keeper Joe Hart - on loan from league leaders Manchester City - the Blues would have realised that aim.

West Ham United and Republic of Ireland defender Declan Rice has said that he was delighted to make a statement against his former youth side Chelsea on Sunday.

Most of the dozen are middle aged, with the exception of one man in his 20s, as well as two women who appear to be in their 60s. The lawyers will return to the courthouse today to continue the hunt for six alternates, in case one of the jurors is removed.

Nick Pope was equally impressive in helping Burnley to victory by the same margin against Watford at Vicarage Road, so here Hart needed a response to remind the on-watching England assistant Steve Holland of his qualities. The talented 19-year-old has become a key man in the Hammers first team and he also made his senior worldwide debut, against Turkey last month.

Translation: Javier Hern√°ndez has scored 9 goals in 14 games played against Chelsea.

As it was, David Moyes' men were able to collect another valuable point that moved them six clear of the bottom three.

By contrast, Chelsea have now won just one of their last five Premier League matches, a slump in form that nearly certainly means they will fail to catch Tottenham for the fourth Champions League qualifying spot, with just six league matches remaining. Many of them believe the Italian will depart at the end of the season, only 12 months after winning the Premier League.

Willian forced Hart into a sharp save on 36 minutes after being played in by Hazard, but the hosts scored from the resulting corner.

Two goals were disallowed because of very close offside calls.

"The thing is we have to start playing good football and winning games, because if we don't do that we can not get in the top four".
