Chelsea's title hopes were shattered yesterday after losing a London Derby against West Ham United at the London Stadium. Antonio Rudiger, Thiago Silva, Andreas Christensen, Marcos Alonso, Jorginho, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Reece James, Mason Mount, Hakim Ziyech, and Kai Havertz all started for Chelsea in their normal 3-4-2-1 configuration.
Thiago Silva scored in the 28th minute, Manuel Lanzini scored in the 40th minute (penalty), Mason Mount scored in the 44th minute, Jarrod Bowen scored in the 56th minute, and Arthur Masuaku scored in the 87th minute.
Although Chelsea was able to control possession as expected, West Ham's counterattack, led by English winger Jarrod Bowen, was extremely dangerous.
Squawka Football has offered the following statistics breakdown of the Englishman's performance:
Jarrod Bowen's full name is Jarrod Bowen.
1. Touches: 42
2. There were 11 duels attempted.
3. Won ten possessions (most)
4. 7 touches in the opposition's box (Chelsea)
5. 6 victories in duels (most)
6. 4 bullets (most)
7.4 fouls were won (most)
8. a single goal
Jarrod Bowen had a vintage all-around performance, according to these numbers. He was a constant threat to Chelsea's defense throughout the game, and he also contributed to the team's defensive efforts.
His presence aided in keeping Chelsea at bay while also posing a greater threat to them. Jarrod Bowen is an English winger who was signed by West Ham United for a fee of around 17 million pounds. He is known for his trademark move of cutting onto his left foot to get a shot on goal.
It is unknown whether Chelsea would have won the game if Jarrod Bowen had not played, but it is safe to say that if he (Jarrod Bowen) had not played, Chelsea would have had a much easier time. Starting with their UEFA Champions League match against Zenit St Petersburg, the blues will be trying to get back on track.
