West Ham United striker Carlton Cole hailed gaffer Sam Allardyce after their shock win over Chelsea.

Cole credited Allardyce for turning the match on its head.

"I've got to put it down to the gaffer's tactics, we were a bit defensive in the first half," Cole told Sky Sports.

"We switched it around and put on some attacking players. Momo came on and did brilliantly and changed the game for us."
