After watching his West Ham team lose 2-1 to Chelsea at the London Stadium, Slaven Bilic admits he’s impressed with Chelsea and can’t see Chelsea losing our advantage in the title race.
Goals from Eden Hazard and Diego Costa gave Chelsea a 2-0 lead before Manuel Lanzini’s 92nd-minute consolation goal. Our 2-1 victory over West Ham means our lead at the top is now 10 points.
“This is the Premier League and they have enough points if they slip up,” Bilic said following the match. “They are not going to lose. They won’t be casual.
“They look very serious and I can see them staying on top because of the quality they have and how solid and concentrated they are. And most of all how physically good their shape is.
“They always defend with a minimum five [players]. I’m impressed with them because they are 10 points clear.”
