2:27 West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini is more concerned about 'performance over points'

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri says that he is satisfied with his side's goalless draw against West Ham United, despite seeing their flawless start to the season ended.

'We tried too much to play centrally and against a strong defence like that, a lot of players, it was very hard to combine, especially in the last 30 yards.

Liverpool are among the favourites to rival Manchester City for the Premier League title this season and it is easy to see why after six wins from six. We have started to work altogether 40 days ago and less time with the worldwide teams. "I don't know why they lost their first four matches, they are really a very good team and now with confidence after they won at Everton".

Taking that into consideration, as well as Sarri's need to shuffle his pack, we have devised a likely starting eleven that will take to the field on Wednesday.

For all of Chelsea's first-half domination, clear-cut chances were hard to come by and they were almost punished by West Ham just before the half-hour mark, but Antonio blazed wide after exquisite play by Felipe Anderson. "Maybe a spectacular match but, for us, very hard".

"I think we have played well in the second half, but it's impossible to win every match. So it's OK, one point, for today". Sometimes as players we have to recognise the best way to put them in difficulties.

They now face a midweek Carabao Cup match at Anfield before hosting the Reds at Stamford Bridge next weekend in the Premier League. Asked if his star player had done so against West Ham, the Italian said: "Not in the first half". It will be really a very hard match.

Ahead of two big games against Liverpool, Blues boss Maurizio Sarri provided an injury update on Antonio Rudiger and Pedro.

Declan Rice said West Ham are now "buzzing" after putting their dismal start to the season behind them.
