Maurizio Sarri admits Blues are a long way behind Reds

[Teams] West Ham vs Chelsea: Confirmed Line-Ups From The London Stadium

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.

"They are a step ahead of us at this moment. So it's OK, one point, for today".

The experienced stopper is quickly becoming a favourite of the West Ham crowd through his performances.

Chelsea started the Premier League season with five successive victories, but in Sunday's London derby they were frustrated by a dogged Hammers side. Now our opponents are starting to know Chelsea well so we need to bring something else. "In the last two or three matches we've defended very well, but we have to improve in the offensive phase especially in this kind of match".

Despite having barely 30 percent of possession in the first half, West Ham finally came alive after 30 minutes with two good chances for Antonio.

New Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has called for assistance on fixture scheduling to boost English clubs' chances in Europe.

The visitors were on top for long spells of the game but West Ham might have taken all three points had Andriy Yarmolenko not missed a glorious chance for them with 13 minutes remaining.




The match fell into a similar pattern in the second half, Chelsea searching for openings around the West Ham box but Felipe Anderson and Yarmolenko looked unsafe when the home side broke forward.

"Midweek [against Liverpool in the EFL Cup] it won't matter because I don't think they've got a big, Christian Benteke type striker". I am surprised. In Naples, the first month was very hard.

It's not hard to imagine Sarri's high defensive line being torn to shreds, particularly if Rudiger's injury deprives the Blues of all recovery speed.

Before then the two sides will face off in the third round of the Carabao Cup at Anfield on Wednesday, and Sarri is not sure how much he will rotate his team. Now, really, I don't know.

"I see Declan working every day and I know the way he does it", Pellegrini told reporters after the game.
