Chelsea thrashed out three points at home, giving Antonio Conte a winning start.

It was billed as a match with huge attacking potential, but ended up one that took its spectators through the grinder. Chelsea set up with a hugely defensive system, with two defensive midfielders, and yet had huge swathes of possession. It was possession they didn’t always find easy and breezy, as West Ham also set up with a defend-first mentality.

It took a second half penalty, offered in appalling fashion by Michail Antonio, to give Chelsea the lead. West Ham equalised via, of all people, James Collins, but Chelsea and Conte had the last euphoric roar, as Diego Costa wrestled back maximum points in the 89th minute.
