West Ham boss Allardyce: Chelsea had too much class
Allardyce admitted the Blues deserved to win yesterday.
He said: "We've got the talent and I want the talent to be maximised every game. I want them to maximise their performances whoever they're playing and if the best isn't quite good enough at the end of the day, then fair enough.
"To ask a team who are newly promoted into the Premier League to beat a top four-team twice is a pretty big ask, isn't it?"
