The stats from Chelsea’s defeat to West Ham tell quite a different story from the game we saw.

Chelsea had 66% ball possession, 19 goal attempts and 6 shots on target. This is quite dominant compared to West Ham’s 34% ball possession, 5 goal attempts and 4 shots on target.

Despite the dominant stats, the Blues never really looked like scoring especially in the second half, while Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizabalaga had to make two stunning saves to keep Chelsea in the game.

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has blamed the forward players for not being clinical enough and has urged his side to try and be more clinical when the chances are created.

He told the BBC Sport: “I think we were not clinical, we need to be more clinical when we create the chances.

“We weren’t and then we conceded. Then it is difficult.”

Chelsea’s next game is against Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, and the Blues must return to winning ways in that game.
