Chelsea 3-0 West Ham, a powerful Thiago Silva header put the Blues in front as Tammy Abraham brace help Chelsea to beat West Ham 3-0 at the Stamford Bridge on Sunday night.
Tammy Abraham speaks on SKy Sport, he says: “[The win] is much more like it, the boys said before that we need a performance and we did that today.
“My job is to help the team as much as possible to score goals and get in the right area that’s what I did with my two goals.
“Scoring goals gives you confidence as a striker and credit to my team-mates as a three nil win against West Ham is massive.
“They’re a great side, credit to them they’ve been great this year.
“We had to be patient for the second goal.
“Hopefully we can kick on now.”
West Ham boss David Moyes says: “I didn’t think we deserved that, but obviously we conceded three goals, so it’s the correct score.
“I think we had chances as well, we had a lot of the ball.
“It was a big test and I thought for long spells we did well. But the truth is we didn’t do enough in the box.
“They’re a threat and have some power- we tried to prepare for it, but we got caught out early.
“You’re playing against a good team and you know it’s a tough game. It was difficult to not get anything in our favour tonight, that was unlucky.
“I thought there were a bundle of [decisions] that were wrong tonight.
“I thought it was a big test, while we haven’t got the result, we’ve shown that we can give big sides a game.”
When asked about why Abraham was chosen over Giroud, Lampard says: “The individual form would have been a tough call on Oli as he’s been playing well.
“The pair have different attributes; I just felt with West Ham, where they’re solid and well organised, that Tammy’s natural ability to run behind them would suit us and it did tonight.
“We judged it on the opposition to a degree and Tammy came up trumps, but it’s nothing on Oli as he always turns up and performs so well for us.”
Speaking on Sky, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard says: “The game was hard.
“We started really well, but the period in the second half, we didn’t get much of the ball, but Kovacic got us more on the ball when he came on.
“It felt like West Ham could hurt us at any moment; it certainly wasn’t a vintage performance tonight, but it’s good to get a win after two defeats.
“This season is different to every other season., It’s hard at a club with expectations like we have.
“When you’re winning and unbeaten for a long time things move swimmingly and it’s much easier to manage- but I have to be the one that drives it.
“There was a bit of tension going into the game today, in a good way, which I was happy about., They showed some real grit tonight.”
