Antonio Conte: This is why I'm happy after victory against West Ham United


Chelsea manager Antonio Conte was delighted after his side's 2-1 home win against West Ham United.

With the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool all kicking off their campaigns with a win, the Blues needed to respond in style.

They produced a very convincing performance at Stamford Bridge with Diego Costa the hero for his side after scoring in the final stages of the game.

"I'm delighted with the performance because I saw a lot of good things," Conte told reporters.

"There was great intensity and possession. We know we can improve through our work but tonight it was very important to start with a victory against a strong side like West Ham. We deserved the victory because we created a lot of chances.

"Every manager when they arrive at a new club tries to bring their philosophy and we have only been working with the players for one month, but I'm pleased.

"Tonight I saw the right intensity and the players always tried to find the situation we did in the training sessions.

"It's important to bring something different from last season. I'm very happy with the attitude and behaviour of the players and to have a great team it's important to have the right spirit."
