Sam Allardyce admitted Chelsea were too good for West Ham United after the Premier League leaders were comfortable winners at Stamford Bridge.

John Terry opened the scoring in the 31st minute as the Chelsea captain scored for the second time in five days following his header at Britannia Stadium on Monday night.

I am not saying we deserved anything, Chelsea were the better team but when we carved out a few chances

Jose Mourinho’s men wrapped up another three points in the Premier League title race as Diego Costa scored his 13th top-flight strike of the season.

And West Ham manager Allardyce had no complaints about the 2-0 defeat, accepting Chelsea were superior to his east London side.

“Up to 2-0 yes [they were too good],” Allardyce told Sky Sports.

“We did not do enough to affect them today because of the quality they have. I said if we were going to get anything against Chelsea you have to play your best but even then that might not be good enough.

“We created some very good chances late on and did not give up. The best part of our game came from when we went 2-0 down.

“I am not saying we deserved anything, Chelsea were the better team but when we carved out a few chances in the last 20 minutes, you stick one in and it can make things a bit nervous for them.”
