Chelsea striker Loic Remy has expressed his joy in scoring for the team in their 3-0 win over Tottenham at Stamford Bridge. Remy scored the third goal on the night for Chelsea as the Blues maintained their six point lead at the top of the League.
‘I am really pleased because I am a striker so obviously I want to score every game,’ said the 27-year-old. ‘We deserved to win because we played very well and scored three nice goals and we try to keep this going every game.
‘We knew that Tottenham have a big squad with good quality and they played well. They tried to make some difficulties and had some opportunities but we were strong defensively and offensively we scored good goals. For us the first thing is to be strong and then we know our quality so we know we can score any time against any team.’
It was his first goal for Chelsea following his return from injury. ‘Because I was injured, it was good for the confidence for me to come in and score,’ he said. ‘I was very happy and very proud but it was the work of all the team who made me score.
‘I just feel really proud to be on the bench first but of course I want to play, that is why I work hard during the training sessions. But we have three good strikers and the others show me a good example, they are very professional and for me it is a real pleasure to play with this kind of player.
‘I try to increase my level and improve and it is really good to work with them, and every time the manager wants to use me, I try to do my best. There are a lot of games coming so I am not worried about staying on the bench. We are in all competitions so we need everybody and for me it is important to be ready when the opportunity arises.’
He also spoke on Didier Drogba and Diego Costa.
‘We know the quality of Diego [Costa]. He is a really good striker but Didier [Drogba] and me showed we can be without Diego - but we need everybody. The squad being strong makes the difference between us and other teams.
‘Didier is a legend, everybody knows him here and the way he is playing at the minute is very good. He helps the team, he is not selfish, and he scores some goals. He is amazing so I have to take the example from him.’
