Will this factor cost Chelsea points vs West Ham United on Saturday?

It was West Ham's first victory at Stamford Bridge in 14 visits dating back to 2002.

"We were consistent and consistent throughout the game, but we didn't come here to try to design, so this team has to play".

"I've not had to sit here many times and say "we were below par today".

"I wanted them to enjoy playing".

He reflected on a hard two months, saying: "When you don't win, you are a beast, and when you do, you are a genius".

Martin, who previously represented teams such as Leicester City, Milton Keynes Dons and Millwall, joined the Hammers in June as cover for Lukasz Fabianski and Roberto.

But Pellegrini was sure he would rise to the occasion in his long-awaited top-flight debut.

"Yes of course I know his family is linked with this club".

"Shocked isn't the word; the Premier League is what it is", Lampard said after the game.

"But when I spoke with him in the week I could see he was prepared".

"Especially before the game he was very quiet but he demonstrated what he needed throughout the 95 minutes".

"It still doesn't feel real".

Wolves progress after thrilling draw with Braga
That was far from the end of the story, though, as Paulinho cut the gap and Fransergio grabbed a late equaliser to keep Braga top. Raul Jimenez , Matt Doherty and Adama Traore had put them 3-1 ahead after Andre Horta's opener.


"I got in and was able to walk again, move about, so I'm thankful and hopefully it's not too long".

"Those will be questions that are asked of us from the outside and questions I'll want to ask for myself".

Goalkeeper David Martin made his Premier League debut in goal for West Ham and Michail Antonio, Fabian Balbuena and Pablo Fornals were recalled as the Hammers made four changes from the defeat to Tottenham.

However, the West Ham boss insists he needs the whole side to step up against Chelsea and not just one player.

"We arrived late (from Valencia) and had to think about how I was going to proceed".

"I'm delighted for Dave", said Cresswell.

Chelsea didn't concede a single foul in this game, the first time they've ever done so in an entire Premier League game since we have this data recorded (2003-04). That has been a theme of our games in the last week.

"We run more and maybe we create more chances so that's the difference".

"The transfer ban has been well spoken about".

"I don't think it's time for harsh reactions and judgements, it is time for a look at a bit of character to see our reaction".

"I do believe in the squad and I think we've shown some great stuff this season".
