Three things we learned from West Ham vs Chelsea

1. West Ham around to stay in top 4 battle: They weren’t at their best and missed Ogbonna and Cresswell, but this West Ham side are up for the fight and in the second half they were superb. The way they battled back twice was impressive and they made Chelsea commit errors. David Moyes’ side will be right around the top four all season long and maybe, just maybe, they could be in the title race?

2. Jorginho, Mendy rattled: Two of Chelsea’s best players since Tuchel arrived had very poor outings. Jorginho was bullied by Rice and his poor back pass to Mendy led to a penalty being conceded by the Chelsea goalkeeper, who had a sloppy first touch. Mendy was then caught out by Masuaku on the winner. Chelsea’s usually unflappable defense and midfield looked rattled all game long. This was very un-Chelsea under Tuchel.

3. Title race wide open: This result blows the title race wide open. With Liverpool and Man City hot on their heels, Chelsea have shown some poor form in recent weeks and there are weakness there to exploit, especially on the counter. All of a sudden the Blues look unsure of themselves. The reigning European champions looked anything but that against West Ham.

Man of the Match: Jarrod Bowen – Buzzed around everywhere for West Ham and won the penalty for the first goal and slammed home the second. Superb display.

Blues start well

Chelsea started the game well and Hakim Ziyech almost finished from close range. Jarrod Bowen then went on a mazy run and that ended with him flashing a shot just wide from distance.

Tomas Soucek flicked a header wide, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek did well to defend a dangerous set piece as West Ham grew into the game.

Jorginho was then booked after going down, not getting a free kick, then holding onto the ball and throwing it away petulantly. Declan Rice and the other West Ham midfielders got in Jorginho’s face as things heated up.

Chelsea finally go ahead

Havertz headed a Reece James cross into the hands of Fabianski, then moments later Chelsea took the lead. A Mason Mount corner found Thiago Silva unmarked and his low header was tipped onto the post by Fabianski, but it went in.

Moments later West Ham thought they had equalized as Vladimir Coufal’s low shot was going in, but Silva was the hero at both ends as he cleared off his own line.

Bowen then won a penalty kick as Jorginho’s short back-pass caught Edouard Mendy out and his poor first touch allowed Bowen to nip in, and Mendy took him down to concede the penalty.

Lanzini made it 1-1 from the spot, but soon Chelsea were 2-1 up.

Declan Rice, of all people, gave the ball away cheaply and Ziyech’s lovely ball found Mount who volleyed home calmly to make it 2-1 right on half time.

Hammers surge back

Chelsea had plenty of the ball at the start of the second half, while Antonio looked to be a threat on the break but Loftus-Cheek arrived to snuff out a chance for a West Ham counter.

Antonio Rudiger surged forward from the back and set up Alonso, but his effort was well wide, and soon after West Ham were level.

A move down the right saw Coufal played in and he nudged the ball to Antonio who found Bowen and the West Ham winger smashed home a beauty to send the London Stadium wild.

Chelsea had a few half chances late on to grab all three points, but after Kurt Zouma went off with an injury West Ham shored things up and then they won it.

Masuaku’s cross from the left flew in at the near post to catch Mendy out, as West Ham stunned Chelsea and the home fans went bonkers.

UEFA Champions League Final: Key battles for Inter Milan vs Manchester City


Manchester City’s quest for the treble hits its final obstacle when Inter Milan goes toe-to-toe with the Premier League and FA Cup champions in Istanbul at Saturday’s UEFA Champions League Final.

Pep Guardiola’s weren’t at their very best against Manchester United in the FA Cup Final and still walked away with its second trophy of the season.

But City’s final two Premier League matches saw dropped points. The stakes were non-existent and the team quite changed by Guardiola, who’s known to fancy a tactical wrinkle. How will things change this weekend?

It would be stunning if Inter boss Simone Inzaghi came out in anything but a 3-5-2, which has been his go-to formation for Inter Milan this season regardless of opponent.

But might Inzaghi have something up his sleeve?

Inter’s only losses in the Champions League came in the group stage versus Bayern Munich. Add in their setbacks in Serie A and there’s still been no standard recipe for beating Inter. There isn’t one for Man City, either, of course.

Kevin De Bruyne vs Marcelo Brozovic

If there’s a single player capable of messing with Pep Guardiola’s plan to control the game and get the ball to his creators in dangerous spots, it’s Croatian veteran Marcelo Brozovic. The 30-year-old is a force who can both be the club’s metronome and break up the opposition’s best attacks. There are few players in the world like De Bruyne, but he needs to be found in space and City needs the ball to do that. Brozovic can be a big part of limiting both of those things.

Erling Haaland vs Francesco Acerbi

Maybe the two names need to be switched in order, because Acerbi is going to have his hands full with Haaland. The question is whether the 35-year-old Acerbi, still very good but no longer in his prime, can use his nous and vast experience to limit Haaland’s chances to do the exceptional. Haaland, meanwhile, just has to be himself. Ask yourself who’s being asked more.

Andre Onana vs Man City’s attack

Picking one player, even Haaland or De Bruyne, for this battle is unfair to the exercise because let’s be real. There is no chance that Inter Milan wins this game without a supreme moment or two from its goalkeeper. Andre Onana has played every Champions League match for Inter and has had his fair share of outstanding performances. He’s outperformed expected goals on target by 6.7 goals over the course of the tournament.
