West Ham win leaves Fabregas smiling

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has revealed that West Ham weren't the only team in London celebrating the Hammers' win against Tottenham on Friday evening.

West Ham's 1-0 win in their final London derby of the season secured West Ham's Premier League status whilst almost certainly ending Tottenham's title hopes.

And that, naturally, was sweet music to the ears of Fabregas and his Chelsea team mates - who now need to win just two of their final four matches to guarantee the Premier League title.

"We cannot deny that a smile came onto our face," he told Sky Sports, when asked how he reacted to the result. "The more points that they drop, the better for us and the closer to the title we are with less games.

"Now today it's all about us, we have to do our job. Today is that game that winning would mean a lot to the team and the club, so hopefully we can do that."

The win took West Ham to 42 points for the season, guaranteeing them at least a 16th-place finish - although the defeat of Spurs leaves them 12th in the table, level on points with Southampton and Bournemouth and just one behind reigning champions Leicester City.
