Chelsea manager makes worrying admission following West Ham loss

Chelsea manager makes worrying admission following West Ham loss

It means they could now fall 14 points behind leaders Manchester City if Pep Guardiola's side win away at Manchester United today.

"To speak about the title race after a defeat is a bit odd, especially if this is the fourth defeat of the season, after 16 games".

It's fair to say that one of the reasons behind our title triumph last season was down to playing fewer games than our rivals. If you want to stay in the title race, you must give continuity - continuity in the result. We still had plenty time, but that laboured start carried on throughout the game. He has taken a strict approach, beginning when he told the players that they needed to shape up or ship out and he singled out Marko Arnautovic, their record signing, as an issue.

In-form Leicester City climbed to eighth after a luckless 86th-minute own goal by Ayoze Perez - who prodded the ball into his own net as he attempted a tackle - earned them a 3-2 win at Newcastle United.

Chelsea is developing a bad habit of allowing opponents to end winless runs.




Chelsea tried to respond but were unable to break down a resilient West Ham team despite registering 19 shots.

"We won against one of the best teams in the league and we hope we can play like that for the rest of the season". Its last three defeats to Tottenham were all 4-0. Arnautovic has taken it on board and scored Saturday's victor.

"It wasn't an altercation, the guy was only asking a question", said Hodgson about a conversation with a supporter at full time.

Wilfried Bony scored for the second game running to lift Swansea off the foot of the table.

"I saw their game against Manchester City, when City attacked for the whole game against 11 defenders but they found a way to score, we created chances but didn't take them and so we are talking about a defeat".
