West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce concedes that his team deserved their 2-0 defeat at Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday.

West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has admitted that his side deserved their 2-0 defeat at Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday.

Frank Lampard and Eden Hazard were on target at Stamford Bridge as the Hammers slumped to their third loss in four matches.

"They deserved to win and we have to accept that," Allardyce told BBC Sport. "It is not going to define our season, beating them once is enough, beating them again would just be greedy.

"We would like six points and get to 39 points as quick as we can."

The loss has seen West Ham slip down to 14th place in the Premier League table.
