Chelsea played out a frustrating 1-1 draw with West Ham at Stamford Bridge on Sunday in a game the Blues should easily have won.

Antonio Conte’s men missed a lot of chances, only for Chelsea nemesis Chicarito to come on from the bench and send a powerful shot past Thibaut Courtois after some poor defending.

Conte admitted that he’s feeling frustrated with the results from the game and wants his players to feel same as well.

Conte said: “It’s another result which isn’t positive because we are talking about a draw. You must win this game. I’m very frustrated and I hope all my players go home and are frustrated as well. You have to have the right mentality. If we accept this result and say today we were unlucky, we are not building anything positive for the future.

“When I say I’m frustrated I mean for everyone – myself, the players. We win, lose and draw together. When we have this type of result we have to share the responsibility together. It’s very difficult for me to explain this game. We are talking about a draw after we have dominated the game. We created a lot of opportunities to score a second or third goal and then we conceded, that’s frustrating.”
