    Hunger v smugness0

    West Ham, desperate for points and starved of success, overpowered rivals Chelsea who – to their shame – turned up at the London Stadium for this midweek league derby smugly expecting a simple win. On paper, the Blues should have beaten the Irons. Especially as the vast echoing bowl of a stadium lacked a baying

    Chelsea managed to escape with a 3-0 defeat at the Bridge against a potentially rampant Bayern Munich side who are going to take some stopping if they aren’t going to lift the Champions League trophy this season.

A largely dull surprise, but still a surprise. That Chelsea held on for the whole of normal time and

Morrie Sarri had played down prospects, saying that real synchronicity could be up to three months away. But with N’Golo Kante knocking in a surprise opener, new
