Premier League score: West Ham 3-1 Chelsea: reaction and ratings

Recent trips to Olympic Stadium rarely have positive memories for Chelsea. West Ham, who are undoubtedly difficult to play against and defeat in any situation, were able to transform a potential sterile Olympic-ready arena into a legitimate football stadium.

If your team is a top one or you aspire to be one, there are strategies to combat this. One of them is to prevent West Ham from playing traditional "balls to the air" football, where a set-piece expert may place the ball wherever he wants, allowing David Moyes' squad to take advantage of your team's lack of height and aerial prowess.

Easier said than done, as James Ward-Prowse, a former Southampton midfielder, assisted Nayef Aguerd on his debut for West Ham, who easily defeated Carney Chukwuemeka and Conor Gallagher in the box.

Even before the first game, Chelsea felt uneasy, so seeing them lose in such a blatant way seemed to lower our spirits even more. However, the earlier iteration of This version doesn't feel like Chelsea would be able to mount a comeback at all.

The attack and our chances up front were being led by Chukwuemeka, Raheem Sterling, and Nicolas Jackson, who were assisted by sassy Enzo Fernández's defense-slicing passes. After a fantastic solo effort and well-placed shot to beat Alphonse Aréola, it would be Chuk who would score the equalizing goal.

But it also appears that Chelsea's fortune hasn't changed. Tomas Soucek fouled Sterling in the box, and Enzo went up to the spot to take the penalty. His attempt was feeble and low to the ground, just the kind of strike that a goalkeeper like Aréola is most suited to stop and win the game.

Worse things got worse during stoppage time. Chukwuemeka stumbled to the ground after beginning to complain of an injury. Because he couldn't put any pressure on his left foot, he could only leave the field with the medics' assistance.

In his stead, Mykhailo Mudryk on the field, but at least for the first few minutes, he was unable to have the same impact as Chukwuemeka. Though West With the help of a major Axel Disasi error that gave Michail Antonio all the time in the world to give the hosts the lead again, Ham continued to pose a threat to Chelsea with a few loose balls.

In a challenging scenario, Moisés Caicedo was given the opportunity to make his debut on the field. While West Ham just turtled into their defensive third, there was little to no midfield activity for him to participate in, and Mudryk really struggled to have any offensive influence despite Sterling's best efforts. Later on, Madueke was also introduced, but it appeared that he was still holding back after spending some time out of the game due to an injury.

West Ham still had time to add a third goal. After a terrible week for the Brazilian star, Lucas Paquetá was given the opportunity to score from the penalty spot thanks to Caicedo's awful timing on an Emerson foul in the box.


For a battle against the big men in West London, use 3-5-2 or 3-4-3 once more.
Mykhailo Mudryk, Moisés Caicedo, Noni Madueke, Conor Gallagher, and Mason Burstow are the substitutes for Carney Chukwuemeka, Ben Chilwell, and Malo Gusto, respectively.
Conor Gallagher and Carney Chukwuemeka made terrible defensive mistakes that led to West Ham's opening goal. We must put a lot of effort into stopping these plays.
Chukwuemeka more than makes up for it by having fantastic attacking zeal and scoring a goal!
Chuk, get well soon.
debut of Caicedo!
Mason Burstow concurs, too.
The game's turning point will be considered to be the missed penalty. That, together with Chuk's injuries, greatly dimmed our spirits.
Next up is Luton Town's home Premier 
League match.
