Lira—4, December 2021: West Ham United have beaten the Premier League leaders, Chelsea. David Moyes boys were similarly flying like leaders Chelsea in recent months, before going three games without winning.
The two teams met on Saturday afternoon in a derby game
The winning strike from Arthur Masuaku was a tad fortunate, but it proved enough to get the home side over the line after Bowen had equalized for the hosts earlier in the second period, football.london reports.
This is Chelsea’s second defeat of the season.
Hammers has so far beaten Liverpool, Leicester, Manchester United, Tottenham and Manchester City this season, and they look to be focusing on the prestigious crown.
Thomas Tuchel told BT Sports as per The Guardian, “I don’t think we did a bad match. An OK match. But it’s tough to play here, and we did too many individual mistakes, and we got punished for it. We talked about it before, but it obviously did not help, and that’s the story.”
“[Jorginho’s back pass that led to the penalty] is not the best decision to pass the ball back, the decision making from Edouard is not the best in that moment. We had a lot of touches in the box but sometimes you need a bit of luck, and this we did not have.”
“The third goal is a strange one. We could not finish with clear chances and struggled to be ruthless. We made way too many mistakes, you cannot do it at this level. We need to play more accurately, more stable, and reduce big mistakes.”
2021-2022 premier league contests is hotter with teams in the top half of the table all fighting for a top four finish. All are showing positive momentum and energies to play in Europe next season.
