Chelsea vs West Ham: Conte reacts to 1-1 draw

It's a pity because we dominated the game.

But Chelsea missed a host of chances to increase their advantage and were made to pay when Javier Hernandez came off the bench to snatch the leveller with 17 minutes left.

Chelsea were hoping to beat West Ham to cut the gap to Liverpool, in third, to eight points, with Jurgen Klopp's team still to visit Stamford Bridge this season, meaning the gap could have effectively been shrunk to five points.

"I'm very frustrated and I hope my players go home and stay frustrated because, in this way, we have the right mentality". How many times have I said that we didn't take the chances we created? We are talking about improving, improving, improving.

Azpilicueta touched his black armband and pointed to the sky in tribute to former Chelsea star Wilkins, 61, who died last week.

Super Eagles forward Victor Moses featured for Chelsea and went close on a few occasions before he was replaced by Pedro Rodriguez on 77 minutes.

Hazard was looking more like his old self and he combined with Cesc Fabregas to prise open the West Ham defence, but Morata's deft back-flick rolled wide.

As well as showering goalkeeper Joe Hart with praise following a number of crucial saves, West Ham manager David Moyes, who described the manner in which Chelsea scored as "poxy", also lauded the predatory instincts of Hernandez.

Skipper Gary Cahill paid tribute in his column in Chelsea's match programme.

A quick pass from Arnautovic found Hernandez and the striker, on for just three minutes, drilled a fine finish past Thibaut Courtois.

In the end, Hart was a principal reason for the Hammers leaving Stamford Bridge with a point as he tipped over a thunderous Marcos Alonso effort before clawing a downward Olivier Giroud header around the post.
