Chelsea dropped their first Premier League point of the season following a 0-0 draw with West Ham at the Wembley Stadium.

Maurizio Sarri's side came into the match with a 100 per cent record but could not deliver the goods against their stubborn London neighbours.

The London derby was somewhat a cagey affair in the opening exchanges of the match as the Blues dominated possession while the Hammers depended on the counter attack.

Mikhail Antonio got the best chance of the first half as he forced a fine save from young goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Chances were few and far between in the second 45 minutes of the contest as there just a few openings in the final third.

Substitute Alvaro Morata who came on for Olivier Giroud in the 65th minute pulled a fine save from Lukas Fabianski as both sides still searched for a goal.

Andriy Yamalenko should have scored as he headed a delightful cross from Robert Snodgrass wide.

As the match headed in the last ten minutes of regulation time, it was certain that any goal from either side would win the match.
