Victor Moses Scores As Chelsea Defeat West Brom

Vital West Brom win saves Conte and Chelsea's season — for now

West Brom lost 3-0 to Chelsea and with the Baggies favourites now for relegation should they genuinely consider sacking manager Alan Pardew?

Eden Hazard's brace either side of Victor Moses' goal saw the Blues comfortably beat bottom-placed West Brom on Tuesday morning.

Securing Champions League qualification is now the priority for Chelsea with any prospect of successfully defending the title evaporating long ago with leader Manchester City 19 points ahead of the champions. After the match, the Italian attributed his team's early struggles to the scars of recent setbacks.

The unfortunate striker had to go off injured after just two minutes and 57 seconds of his new team's 3-0 defeat away to champions Chelsea.

"At the same time I think I had a good answer with Morata when he came on, for this we must be happy".

"When you lose two games in a bad way the confidence goes down. We need to give everything". I think until the end we continue to live with this speculation. If I have a player who is 8/10, I take him to 10/10. It was very important to keep another clean sheet.

The Blues completed the signing of Olivier Giroud in the eleventh hour of the January transfer window for a reported £18million fee and the Frenchman was given his first Chelsea start since his move against West Brom.

Now, pressure relieved a little, he could turn his attention to the FA Cup against Hull on Friday and an enticing Champions League encounter with Barcelona next week.

Sturridge was hoping to get more time on the pitch at West Brom as he bids to win a place in Gareth Southgate's England squad for the World Cup but this latest injury hurts his chances and damages West Brom's survival hopes.

"We must be pleased because in the same night we found also Morata". We missed a great chance and five minutes later we were 1-0 down. "It will be important to find the right confidence". "The first goal was a clear example of our idea", Conte added.

Chants of "Antonio, Antonio" rang around Stamford Bridge, reflecting a desire from sections of the fan base for Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich to resist dismissing Conte.

"So I must thank them for that. We have great players and we need to finish in the top four at the end of the season, that's our target", Hazard told the club's website.

Conte's name was sung throughout by the home fans, in an obvious show of support.

"To feel this atmosphere around me is very important". It's very important to feel that people appreciate my work here in Chelsea.

"The players and I are trying to do our best to give them the best satisfaction. Sometimes we can do this, sometimes not, but the will is always present".

"We are all together", Hazard said. "You could see in the 3-0 win over West Brom on Monday that it had benefited us".
