West Ham picked up their fourth point of the season yesterday with a 0-0 draw against Chelsea.
At The London Stadium, West Ham kept Chelsea out and had chances to win it too.
It was the first time that Chelsea had not won a game this season with Manuel Pellegrini sharing the spoils with fellow new manager Maurizio Sarri.
Pellegrini has recently changed the formation. West Ham now deploy a 4-3-3 and this is working to good effect.
In Declan Rice, he has found his new holding midfielder. And Mark Noble and Pedro Obiang have excelled ahead of him in a midfield trio.
Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko have more license going forward as wide men in the front three.
After the game, Pellegrini took to Twitter to share his thoughts with Hammers fans.
The Chilean said: “Congratulations to the players for their great effort and thanks to all the West Ham United fans for the amazing support today. It’s our first clean sheet and against one of the favorite teams of the Premier League.”
Here are how West Ham fans responded to their manager.
Well done Manuel. Keep up the good work.
