Chelsea returned to winning ways on Monday, as the Blues defeated West Ham 3-0 at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

Goals from Thiago Silva and Tammy Abraham sealed a 3-0 victory for the Blues, as Chelsea climbed up to fifth place in the Premier League standings.

Despite the massive victory, only one Chelsea player made the list of BBC Premier League team of the week, with Garth Crooks singling out Thiago Silva from the entire Chelsea squad.

Crooks was pleased with the display of the Brazilian and especially his headed goal as he explained his choice of the Chelsea centre-back: “So Chelsea have put a stop to the back-to-back defeats they suffered recently.

“West Ham were no pushovers on the night, regardless of what the scoreline suggests. However, it was the headed goal by Silva that blew me away.

“The way Silva attacked the ball was ferocious and the header flew into the back of the net like a bullet.

“He looks so assured in defence and seems to have adapted to the new handball rules especially well, taking a driven shot at the Chelsea goal in the stomach with his hands firmly behind his back. There was no way he was going to give a penalty away. Now that’s defending.”
