Chelsea boss Antonio Conte resigned to missing out on Champions League football after West Ham draw

Antonio Conte felt Chelsea's 1-1 draw with West Ham summed up their frustrating season.The Blues dominated the match at Stamford Bridge but only had Cesar Azpilicueta's first-half goal to show for it.Alvaro Morata had two goals disallowed for offside while West Ham keeper Joe Hart suddenly began to display the sort of form which not so long ago made him England's undisputed number one.And within three minutes of coming on as a second-half substitute Javier Hernandez swept in an equaliser to snatch a point for West Ham.The stuttering champions are now 10 points behind Tottenham and Blues boss Conte admits a top-four finish looks an increasingly forlorn hope."We must be realistic," he said.
