Madueke backing Chelsea for Europe after West Ham thumping

-

Noni Madueke is backing Chelsea to finish as high as possible after the Blues thrashed West Ham 5-0 in the Premier League.

First-half goals from Cole Palmer, Conor Gallagher and Madueke put the West London side in firm control at Stamford Bridge before a brace from Nicolas Jackson compounded the misery on David Moyes and his players.

It was another impressive performance from Madueke, who was heavily involved throughout as well as in the 2-0 win against Tottenham on Thursday.

The win puts Chelsea within touching distance of the European places and only six points behind fifth-placed Tottenham with three games to go.

Speaking after the match, Madueke said: “I feel credit has to be given to us, we dominated in all phases.

“We know they are strong on the counter and physical but we tried to limit that.

“We have been confident but now we’re starting to put everything together, being unselfish and working as a collective.

“The last two games have shown that. Two clean sheets and seven goals. It’s a credit to the whole club.

“The chips fall how they are meant to fall.

“We will do our best to finish as high as possible to try and qualify for Europe.

“We know what we can do now and next season we can put everything into it.

“When you play for one of the biggest clubs in the world you have to be in Europe. It has been disappointing this season but we have to go and get it next season.”
