Chelsea beat West Ham by five goals to zero, with Cole, Palmer, Conor Gallagher and Noni Madueke all scoring and Nicolas Jackson scoring twice.

With this win, Chelsea are now seventh in the Premier League, which will allow the team to participate in the Europa League next season.

“I’m so happy for the players and staff,” Pochettino told Sky Sports after the final whistle.

“After the victory against Tottenham and to come back again after a few days is very good.

“It was a brilliant game, it was amazing. They reacted in the right way. I was so happy how we competed on Thursday and we have talented players to create chances and score goals.

“I wasn’t relaxed in the dugout, I wanted to keep a clean sheet. West Ham are a powerful team on set-pieces and we needed some luck. It was important not just to win the game but also get the clean sheet.”

The Blues are unbeaten at home since early February, a reflection of the team’s recent development.

“It’s true last season was tough for everyone here and to turn the feelings and performance this season is difficult,” he said.

“We needed time for everyone to trust in the process and we have recovered good feelings at Stamford Bridge.”
