West Ham United vs Chelsea: Willian reveals what Blues must do now after ‘disappointing’ defeat.
Chelsea winger, Willian, has urged Frank Lampard’s men to remain united and move forward following their ‘disappointing’ Premier League 3-2 defeat to West Ham United on Wednesday night.
Chelsea had taken the lead through Willian’s penalty before West Ham United struck back twice to take the lead at the London Stadium.
Willian’s free-kick made it 2-2 for the Blues, but Andriy Yarmolenko’s late counter-attack goal earned David Moyes’ side all three points against the visitors.
The Brazilian international, who made history after the match, wants the Blues to win their next fixture against Watford at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, adding that they have to play their remaining games like a final in order to qualify for the Champions League.
“It’s very disappointing,” Willian said as quoted by Chelsea’s official website. “The plan was to win the game, and we missed a chance to go third [on the Premier League table].
“At least we have a game on Saturday to win at home. It is not a time to complain. We have to win on Saturday.”
”We have to play every game as a final, and fight to get into the Champions League places.”
“We deserve to finish in the Premier League top four. Sometimes we have gone up and down, but I think we deserve to be there, and we have to keep that position.”
