on Saturday.

The Blues took the lead twice in the first half courtesy of Thiago Silva and Mason Mount’s goals; however, Manuel Lanzini and Bowen equalized the game before Arthur Masuaku sealed his side’s victory.

According to Bowen, West Ham are proud of their spirit and attitude that guided them to be fourth on the table this season.

"

That is what we are about as a team, the character, the belief,"

Bowen said to

BT Sport

after the game. 

"We hung in sometimes when it was difficult. 

"We never know when we are beaten, we went behind twice but showed that reaction and a lot better performance. 

"We wanted to be on the front foot and press them aggressively and not let them play, which they are good at. We wanted to limit what their game plan was. 

"We haven't won in a few games and have been disappointed in ourselves, but to come back and beat Chelsea, what a performance." 

Notwithstanding the good result, David Moyes criticized his side’s performance; however, he was pleased with the finishing as they netted three of the five shots on target.

"

Truthfully, I didn't think we played that well today,"

Moyes said. 

"But we got the goals and in other games I don't think we played any worse or any better but we haven't got the goals. 

"Today we got the goals to go with it, and to get them against a team that don't concede many is a great credit to the lads. 

"We were much better [in the second half]. We were too passive and submissive in the first half. 

"They are quality, that is why they are European champions because of the level they can play at. Whether you press them or stay off them, they are very good at both." 

The West Ham boss believes Masuaku got lucky in his first Premier League goal of his career.

"

I said to [Masuaku] that I thought it was a great cross,"

Moyes added. 

"It was very fortunate, the goal, but in football you need a bit of fortune sometimes. In the last few games we have lost it a little bit, but today we got it back."
