West Ham midfielder Lanzini delighted being part of victory over Chelsea

West Ham midfielder Manuel Lanzini was delighted to be part of victory over Chelsea.

Lanzini was pleased that his team could over the line in what was a superb battle from start to finish in east London.

“It's a great win for us," the Argentine midfielder said. “Chelsea are one of the best teams in the Premier League and in the world. But we know that we're going well this season and we have confidence in each other and for the whole team.

“It's very important to be back to winning ways because we're fighting at the top of the Premier League. The last three games were disappointing for us, but we need to continue like this because we have a good team, and we have confidence in each other."

The 28-year-old was making his first Premier League start of the campaign and took on the responsibility of the penalty when he was called upon, dispatching with precision from 12 yards.

“I just used my concentration for the penalty," Lanzini admits. “I knew where I wanted to put the ball and I managed to do that.

“I had confidence in myself to put the ball in the back of the net and I'm glad that I could do that to help the team win today."
