Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri satisfied with West Ham United draw

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

Sarri named a strong side for Chelsea's opening Europa League game on Thursday, a 1-0 away win over Greek side PAOK Salonika, with only Hazard, David Luiz, Mateo Kovacic and Emerson Palmieri left in England.

Three points from the London Stadium as West Ham held Chelsea to a 0-0 draw to end the Blues' 100 percent start to the season. We are to play against a team which is very, very good, against a team which have worked with the same coach for four or five years - I don't know exactly - and they are a step forward from us at the moment.

That chance breathed new life into the home crowd and the players and Antonio drew a smart save from Kepa Arrizabalaga in the West Ham goal just two minutes later after a fine run from Andriy Yarmolenko. Maybe we need to give a bit more on the pitch as well.

Sarri bemoaned his side's failure to kill the game off and said West Ham - who lost their first four matches of the season - were tough opponents.

Needing a two-goal win to depose Liverpool at the top of the table, Chelsea struggled to make clear chances despite having the majority of possession and stayed third behind the Merseysiders and champions Manchester City.

"They will provide a real test of how good we are", the striker told the London Evening Standard.

"We started to work all together 35 or 40 days ago, 35 or 40 days and less time [because of breaks] with the global teams. We have to work and improve and then maybe in a year it will be the same level as Liverpool".

Chelsea's flawless Premier League start had come as a surprise, not least because of Sarri's admission in August that he expected "problems" in the first half of the campaign. It was just getting us to gel together, obviously signing nine players at the beginning of the season and a new manager, it was always going to be hard. I heard someone saying in midweek I think it was Tony Gale, "he's the best centre half they've got at the club", and they're playing with him in midfield. But today it was very hard to play inside.
