Chelsea Vs WestHam – Match day 1 match report
It was a win for Chelsea against London Rivals Westham united as Antonio Conte’s men had to really fight hard to grind that first victory of the 2016/17 season considering all the drama of last season..
The last time these two side met on Match day one of a new season was in the year 2000..Chelsea ran away with a 4-2 victory as debutants Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Mario Stanic were both on the score sheet.
Although debutants..Ngolo Kante and young Belgium striker Michy Bashuayi didn’t score on the night but they both kpefed themselves especially the Belgium who rose above the Westham defenders to set up Diego Costa for the winning goal in 89mins.Eden Hazard had put Chelsea ahead converting from the spotkick in the 47mins..his 10th penalty in 11 in Premiership games for Chelsea..Welsh centre half Collins got the only Westham goal, as Chelsea failed to clear a corner.
Now the floggings don start.
The defence line still needs more work.Experienced JT (John Terry) held forth but him don dey old so Conte still needs one more defender to act as backup because Kurt Zouma is still out..so my player Ratings are as follows JT,Cahill and the wingbacks 6/10
Kante and Matic pairing still lacked ginger but in all i give them 6/10
Diego Costa suppose chop cane for my hand..all the power wey him take dey fight, he needs to just channel it more into scoring goals!..he’s still far from the clinical striker we saw in his first season with Chelsea..even if na him score one of the goals na 5/10 i give am
Hazard and Willian 6/10..
The thing wey kpef me pass na say Chelsea has a strong bench In Victor Moses,Pedro and Bashuayi. Their introduction later on changed the game tonight..Congratulations to my Chelsea fans..but Conte come celebrate pass who score goal sef..The man celebrations are something else,
The sky remains blue..
