Captain Cahill says captainy things after Chelsea capitulation against West Ham

Gary Cahill did not think Chelsea were on the ball at the London Stadium

A bad start to the game at West Ham condemned Conte's side to defeat as Marko Arnautovic's sixth-minute goal proved enough to give the hosts the three points.

While Manchester United are still hopeful of reeling in leaders Manchester City, many have already crowned Pep Guardiola's men champions elect.

Conte will be without David Luiz, Charly Musonda and Kenedy for the game; whilst Danny Drinkwater is a doubt after missing the West Ham game through illness.

The clash against Chelsea marks the 41st consecutive time in which Moyes has begun a matchday as manager of a side in the relegation zone, breaking John Gorman's record of 40 games as manager of a bottom-three side back in 1993-94.

Saturday's defeat is the fourth of the season in the league for Chelsea and the chances of them retaining the title they won past year is shrinking with each passing week.

Tottenham Hotspur returned to form with a first win in five league games, thrashing Stoke City 5-1 with Harry Kane scoring twice as Spurs moved back into fifth place. When you have this task, it is impossible to think that you are in the title race.

Spurs claimed a fourth successive four-goal win over Stoke, making Mauricio Pochettino's side the first team to have won by four goals in four consecutive English top-flight meetings with the same opponents.

Having previously been beaten by Burnley, Manchester City and Crystal Palace, Chelsea have lost just one fewer game than in the entirety of their triumphant 2016-17 campaign.

There wasn't much positive spin to be found after the game; unlike previous draws against Liverpool and Atl├ętico Madrid and even the first half of the 3-0 loss to Roma, Chelsea couldn't even claim the better of play on what was a listless and uninspiring 90 minutes at the London Stadium.

"The win, the spirit of the team, how they stuck together and more importantly a lot of the basics were done well today", said Moyes.

"We need our season to turn now".

"Our priority is to play the league", Conte said.
