Chelsea captain Gary Cahill has praised the character which his side showed this weekend as they completed a 4-0 thrashing of West Brom.
Goals from Alvaro Morata, a brace from Eden Hazard, as well as a strike from Marcos Alonso, were enough for the Blues to claim all three points.
“I have to admit it was a superb performance from us, from every single player, and collectively we are very happy,” said the Blues skipper.
“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.”
