|Eden Hazard in action for Chelsea yesterday|
Chelsea’s perfect start to the season came to an end following a 0-0 draw with West Ham at the Olympic stadium.
Maurizio Sarri’s side tried all they could but to no avail even though West Ham could have gone away with all points if not for missing two clear cut chances. Chelsea also had their chances but could not exactly find the back of the net, they stand 3rd with 16 points and their unbeaten run continues in all competitions.
West Ham has failed to lose in their last three Premier League matches against Chelsea, they’ve won one and drawn two.
This is the second time in the last 15 league games that Chelsea would fail to score and this is the second goalless draw Chelsea would play in their last 48 away Premier League matches.
Jorginho made as many as 180 passes in the match, the most of any player since 2003/04 season. He has completed a total of 628 passes in the Premier League this season, more than any other player.
Chelsea have now played 600 London derbies, only Arsenal and Tottenham have played more with 674 and 609 respectively.
Arsenal made it four consecutive Premier League wins of the season thanks to a 2-0 home win over Everton. A brilliant strike from Alexandre Lacazette and a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang goal which should have been ruled out for offside was enough to secure the Gunners the three points and they’ve moved to 6th with 12 points on the log.
Arsenal have now won 97 times against Everton, 11 more than any other side have managed against each other.
Arsenal have now kept a clean sheet for the first time in all competitions this season.
Strike duo Aubameyang and Lacazette have both scored in three of their last five Premier League starts together.
10-man Barcelona had to settle for a 2-2 draw against Girona. Gerard Pique rescued a point for the Catalan after Clement Lenglet was given his march order. Lionel Messi was also on the score sheet.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored a goal to help Juventus to a 2-0 win over Frosinone as their perfect start to the season continues.
