Back-to-back defeats had seen the Blues slip down the table but they returned to winning ways again.

Tammy Abraham expressed his delight after scoring twice as Chelsea bounced back to winning ways on Monday night.

Following back-to-back defeats to Everton and Wolves respectively, the Blues put in a proper display as they beat West Ham 3-0 to move up to fifth in the Premier League table, although, the Hammers created chances but failed to convert them.

Thiago Silva broke the deadlock 10 minutes into the clash at Stamford Bridge as he headed home a corner kick from England international Mason Mount.

Then Abraham scored a double [in the 78th and 80th minute] to compound West Ham’s woes on the day.

And, after the victory over the east London club that failed to register a shot on target, the Chelsea striker told Sky Sports: "The boys said we needed a performance and that's what we did today. As a striker, scoring goals gives you confidence, my team-mates created a lot of chances and we defended well as a team."

Speaking on his brace, the 23-year-old replied: "Something you do in the park, get in the right areas and be ready when the ball lands.

"West Ham are a great side, they gave been great this year and we had to be patient for the second and third goals."

While speaking to BBC Sport, Abraham said: "We needed a performance, I need to be in the right places at the right times, we had to stay patient but luckily we got the three points.

"I need to help the team with either goals or assists or just being a threat. It's about keep getting goals, keep being in the right place.

"It's still early doors to be looking at the table, we have to just keep picking up three points."
