After the 1-0 win over Chelsea last night, Manuel Pellegrini believes that his team fully supports him, even though the West Ham had a rough start this year.
Even though Chelsea had better chances of winning, the Hammers still gained the winning three points when Aaron Cresswell scored a goal in the second half.
“I think it was a really important win,” he disclosed to West Ham TV.
“We know the results recently are not what we expected of this team, but football is like that. You must understand that you must be solid and consistent in the Premier League through the whole game. I think that was the major change [from the last few games].
“That allowed us to keep a clean sheet and beat a team like Chelsea who are in a good moment.
“I think the players are convinced in what we are doing. It’s difficult when you aren’t getting the results you expect to continue working in the same way, but we didn’t concede easy goals [today].
“When you concede goals that you can do better with of course it’s very difficult to win. Today we were concentrated all over and that showed in our performance.”
