A disappointing display, against West Ham United, at the London Stadium, has surely seen Chelsea relinquish any hopes of retaining the Premier League title we won so splendidly last season.

When the three points were there for the taking, Chelsea, on the day, just were not good enough.

Their play was lacklustre and West Ham coped easier than they should have done with our attack.

Following the game, Gary Cahill summed it up perfectly when interviewed by Sky Sports, with the centre-back remarking

‘We were well off it, we allowed them to get the early goal, we have been tight at the back recently and that was a poor one to concede.

‘We just didn’t play our stuff. It’s frustrating. We were just not at the races – for whatever reason that is. It’s disappointing to come off and feel like that.

‘I’m not one to make excuses. We do have loads of games – but if we played to our levels today we get something out of the game. But we didn’t.

‘West Ham of course deserve credit, but we didn’t create as much as we can do.

‘This was a huge game for us. We needed to win this game. We have to reflect and try and freshen up.’

I`m afraid to say, Chelsea Football Club were just not at the races today and it isn`t the first time it has happened this season!
