Chelsea lost 1-0 to West Ham on Saturday at Stamford Bridge.

West Ham striker Michail Antonio has revealed the tactics West Ham used at Stamford Bridge on Saturday to help them secure the win over Chelsea.

According to Antonio, West Ham’s game plan was to send Chelsea wide, force the Blues to cross and limit the wide players’ opportunities to cut in.

“It was to disrupt them, just let them have the ball, don’t let them come through the middle of us because we know they always like to come inside,” Antonio said, according to Football.london.

“So we showed them the outside and got them to cross the ball because we know with Angelo [Ogbonna] and Fabian [Balbuena] at the back, we are going to eat up all the crosses that are going to come in.

“And that’s what we came and did. They didn’t really get in between us at all so the game plan worked.”
