Antonio Conte predicts Chelsea FC v West Ham

09 April 2018

CHELSEA stars donned black No8 shirts ahead of Sunday's clash with West Ham, as fans laid flowers outside Stamford Bridge to remember Ray Wilkins.

There was a black top with the number eight on and a posey of flowers on the assistant manager's seat in the dugout.

Outside the ground, fans flocked to a memorial wall behind the Shed End, laying flowers and scarves with hundreds of fans also queuing to sign a book of condolence.

On the pitch though, it all went a bit pear-shaped.

Moses had another chance on 69 minutes to get on the score sheet after cutting inside only to see his curler fly just past the post.

Conte said: "This game describes our season". A good performance, yes, but many times we have had a good performance and lost the game, or drew the game, many times we've had a good performance but not won the game. And then, one chance for West Ham, we concede a goal. "I am very sad for this situation", he said at his weekly news conference today. "If we accept this result and say we were unlucky, we are not building anything positive".

"We could have done better, of course, we gave them a gift, it was the first clear chance they had and they scored".
