Chelsea played out a goalless draw against West Ham at the London Stadium on Sunday.
The Blues put up a sluggish performance in the game and there were thoughts that it was likely due to their exertions in the Europa League on Thursday.
West Ham missed some glorious chances in the course of the game as well as the Blues, although the Blues can count themselves lucky to take at least a point back to Stamford Bridge.
Regardless, Maurizio Sarri has insisted that the goalless draw had nothing to do with their exertions in the Europa League on Thursday.

The Blues couldn’t return from their trip to Greece till Friday afternoon after a flight was canceled.
This means that they arrived just 48 hours before the game against Pellegrini’s Hammers away from home.
When questions were raised about the possibility of the side suffering a hangover due to the Europa League, Sarri responded:
“No, because we have played better in the second-half than the first-half. So in this period of the season, I don’t think so.
“We knew today was a very difficult match. They are a very good team.
“So I am not disappointed but I think we could have done better, especially in the last 25 minutes of the first-half. We played well in the second-half, very well in the last 25 minutes.
“In the first-half we move the ball very slowly and there was little movement without the ball.”
