Chelsea fans react on Twitter to performance against West Ham - 'Unlucky' 'We need a striker' 'Toni Kroos!'

Mourinho Dugout

Chelsea dominated the stats as they were held to a 0-0 draw by West Ham last night.

Jose Mourinho launched a critical attack against West Ham United after the Hammers held Chelsea to a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League last night.

The result saw the Blues drop points to Arsenal and Manchester City, with City moving to the top on 53 points, Arsenal second on 52 points and Chelsea third with 50 points.

It was a frustrating evening for Chelsea in a match they dominated and really should have won.

“This is not the best league in the world, this is football from the 19th century. The only [other] thing I could bring was a Black and Decker [tool] to destroy the wall. It's very difficult to play a football match where only one team wants to play. It's very difficult,” said Mourinho after the game.

Chelsea dominated the stats with a staggering 72% of the ball throughout the game and an even more astonishing 39 shots on goal, with nine of those efforts on target.

It’s not a disastrous result for Chelsea by any means and they are still right in the title hunt ahead of the second part of the season.

The problem for Chelsea is that the two teams above them, in particular Manchester City, are building momentum and don’t look as though they are going to drop many points over the rest of the campaign.

Chelsea now head into a very important Monday night game against City, where they are unlikely to enjoy so much of the game in their favour.

That’s a game where Chelsea will have to replicate some of the qualities West Ham showed last night, digging in but showing a greater urgency to take more than just a point away from the Etihad Stadium.

Here’s what Chelsea fans made of their side’s performance last night via Twitter.
