The Hammers lost to the Blues at the London Stadium 1-0 yesterday.
And that result could have huge ramifications with regards to the race for the Champions League spots.
Chelsea certainly hold the advantage now in the race for the top four.
David Moyes demands more from West Ham players in the final third
The Hammers huffed and puffed and didn’t stop working. We put up a real fight against Chelsea, but it just wasn’t enough in the end.
Moyes spoke to reporters and shared how he told the West Ham players that they just didn’t work the Chelsea defenders enough, as quoted by Football.London:
“We did not work them hard enough or cause them enough problems, I said that in the dressing room. If there is one thing we have done is looking like we can score but it was tough today and we didn’t really get any breakthroughs. We needed the extra player going into the last ten, fifteen minutes which we did not have.”
Nothing went for us yesterday. We could have been given a penalty in the first-half and the decision to send off Fabian Balbuena was farcical to say the least.
Moyes is right, however.
West Ham just didn’t do enough in the final third to cause Thomas Tuchel’s side any real problems.
Our woeful lack of squad depth is now coming home to roost.
We can all be proud of the boys though. There are still five huge games to go this season. Two wins from Burnley and Everton and our top four dream should be back on.
