Victor Moses Scores As Chelsea Defeat West Brom


Giroud was handed his first starting appearance since his January arrival from Arsenal and created Eden Hazard's opening goal.

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

"It's important that they play games to find their best physical condition", Conte said.

Morata had missed Chelsea's previous four games due to a back injury and Conte suggested on Friday [9 February] that the Spaniard was going to remain on the sidelines for West Brom's visit with club doctors struggling to get to the bottom of the issue.

Moses added Chelsea's second after sprinting down the wing and laying the ball off to Cesc Fabregas, whose flick was deflected back into the Nigerian's path.

"We are the champions and we need to give everything".

"For sure, for me it's important".

"In many ways, we've done a decent job tonight, but the scoreline reflects the season - there's been games we've had great control over, we didn't here but we have in other games, but we can't just seem to get the goals to give us the win". I couldn't feel better so I only have in mind the idea of training with my team and helping us achieve success. "We'll have to nurse him". It's a really attractive game over here and it's going to be even more handsome to play it.

"We must be pleased with Giroud's performance", Conte said of the Frenchman, who was replaced by Morata on the hour after a battling display in which he had his head bandaged and took a blow to the ankle. He's been performing well from the start of the season.

Eden Hazard moves back into a wide position after playing the last two games in the central striker role.

London:Chelsea manager Antonio Conte believes he needs to be more persuasive when asking the club to sign new players, saying that his efforts to convince his board to spend big in the transfer window were "a bit of a disaster". Daniel's injury will be important now - getting him back.

They face Hull City in the FA Cup fifth round on Friday before meeting FC Barcelona in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League on February 20.

That title has been held by two Chelsea players in the past - Peter Osgood and Didier Drogba.
