Chelsea captain Gary Cahill was delighted with Chelsea’s performance against West Brom at the Hawthorns on Saturday.
Three first-half goals from Alvaro Morata, Eden Hazard and Marcos Alonso and another by Hazard after the interval rounded off a convincing victory over West Brom on Saturday.
“I have to admit it was a superb performance from us, from every single player, and collectively we are very happy,” said Cahill as quoted on Chelsea’s official website.
“I felt we played some good football, we kept the ball when we needed to and we scored goals. We saw a bit of everything from us, so performance-wise it was very, very good.
“We were away from home so we expected to be under a bit of pressure, especially early on, and they did come out of the traps pretty quick. We had five or 10 minutes where we had to get hold of the game, but I thought we dealt with that very quickly and once we had control of the game, we went from strength to strength.
“I’m sure they found it very difficult to play against us, we always seemed to have an option to get out of trouble and there was a lot of composure on the ball, which allowed us to keep it for long periods.
“So it was a great team performance, one we have kind of been waiting for, and the scoreline we have been kind of waiting for, so we’re delighted.”
