We create a lot of chances but we can not take them.

"When this happens regularly and you stay in this position, it means you have problems".

'We have young players here that have come through the academy that knew him very well and even though I didn't get to meet him personally, I am fully aware of what he did for this football club. "We have to improve".

Wilkins died at the age of 61 after a cardiac arrest earlier this week and Chelsea fans stood to applaud the life of their former No. 8 in the 8th minute at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea were hoping to beat West Ham to cut the gap to Liverpool, in third, to eight points, with Jurgen Klopp's team still to visit Stamford Bridge this season, meaning the gap could have effectively been shrunk to five points.

Chelsea have now won only three Premier League games in 2018 and have just seven wins from their past 20 games in all competitions.

He sought treatment, and then perhaps the best therapy was being among players as an assistant captain at the Presidents Cup. A wayward drive on the 11th cost him another dropped shot, while his tee shot on the short 12th found Rae's Creek.

Super Eagles forward Victor Moses featured for Chelsea and went close on a few occasions before he was replaced by Pedro Rodriguez on 77 minutes.

Chelsea were in control but when Alvaro Morata found the back of the net from Hazard's pass, the Spain striker's effort was ruled out for offside.

West Ham were nearly pegged back again on 79 minutes as Marcos Alonso fired a long range effort but Joe Hart produced a brilliant save to deny the Spanish defender.

Morata has endured a hard first year with Chelsea and his fortunes weren't improving as he headed over from a corner before having another effort disallowed for offside.

Mark Noble pumped a long ball into the Chelsea area and Blues captain Gary Cahill responded with a mistimed header that dropped for Marko Arnautovic.

But the Hammers still needed Joe Hart to make fine saves from Marcos Alonso and Olivier Giroud to secure a precious point in their battle against relegation.
