Chelsea player ratings vs West Ham
Chelsea missed the chance to leapfrog Leicester City in the Premier League table as they slumped to a 3-2 defeat at the hands of London rivals West Ham United on Wednesday night.
This was after Willian had broken the deadlock from the penalty spot and got the Blues back on level terms with a brilliant free-kick in the second half.
However, Andriy Yarmolenko eventually struck the final blow in a five-goal thriller at the London Stadium as the Hammers completed a league double over their rivals.

As expected, Willian gets a high mark for his brace, but it was a night and a performance to forget for a number of Chelsea players including goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.
But how did the rest of the team fare?

The Blues head coach faced the media following the West Ham defeat game and the main talking point from his press conference was his refusal to single anyone out for blame.
“No, not let down by the defenders. We made mistakes in the build up to the goals, not just defenders, which cost us the game.
“I wouldn’t call it a wake up call. Every game is different.

“We have six games ahead of us now and this wasn’t a huge surprise. If you play in the Premier League and make mistakes, if you boss possession but don’t do quite enough with it at the top of the pitch, then it can happen.
“That’s something we already knew.
“We have to accept it, this evening. Now it’s done and we have to move on to the six games ahead of us.”
