Maurizio Sarri’s side were looking to join Liverpool at the top of the Premier League on 18 points after six games, but they were denied by a resilient and enterprising display from their derby hosts.

“I knew West Ham were a very good team,” he said. “I don’t know why they lost their first four matches, they are really a very good team and now with confidence after they won at Everton.

“I think we have played well in the second half, but it’s impossible to win every match. A point is OK today.”
