The Blues will take on West Ham at Wembley, then a Carabao fixture with Liverpool in midweek then a Premier League engagement at Stamford Bridge with Jurgen Klopp's side.

"In Italy if you are playing in the Champions League you can ask to play the match before on a Friday or Saturday", the former Napoli boss said.

And after the game, Pellegrini took to social media to express his delight at the point and the performance as the side ended their wait for their first clean sheet.

Maurizio Sarri does not think Chelsea will be at the same level as Liverpool for another year following their underwhelming 0-0 draw at West Ham.

'We are improving in the defensive phase.

But for all Chelsea's dominance - a total of 451 passes in the first period - they managed just three shots on target and two of those were from distance.

Felipe Anderson was quick to seize on a loose ball and played in Antonio, who blasted over with his left foot.

And Sarri admitted it was "impossible to win every match", but did not believe the Blues were suffering from a Europa League hangover after their exertions in Greece on Thursday night.

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

West Ham began to drop deeper as the second half progressed and substitute Alvaro Morata nearly made the Hammers pay soon after his introduction, but the Spaniard's close-range effort hit Fabianski in the face before rebounding clear of danger.

The Hammers should have gone ahead on 78 minutes as Robert Snodgrass sent a delightful cross to the far post, where Yarmolenko somehow headed with only goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

'We have also missed Chicharito Hernandez because if Marko is not there, Javier will also be an option or play both of them together.

Owen told Betvictor, "I watched West Ham's win at Goodison at the weekend and thought it was an excellent result for the Hammers although it is fair to say that on the day Everton were there for the taking".
