Chelsea will be full of confidence after their triumph in the Capital One CupReuters

Chelsea resume the hunt for their first Premier League title since 2010 with a midweek clash against London rivals West Ham United at Upton Park on Wednesday.

The Blues claimed their first piece of major silverware under Jose Mourinho's second spell by beating Tottenham Hotspur in the final of the Capital One Cup.

This trophy is also their first since their triumph in the Europa League under interim manager Rafa Benitez in 2013.

Mourinho, despite admitting that he as well as the rest of the squad are happy after winning the League Cup, insists that they still have a lot of "difficult games" to play.

"We are just happy," Mourinho told Chelsea's official website. "Everybody likes to win competitions. I feel the players are very happy but a normal happiness, no more than that."

"I don't think this victory brings us to paradise and everything is now beautiful for us. We have a big, difficult game tomorrow, and we have a big, difficult game next week in the Champions League."

The Portuguese also played down suggestions that Chelsea are now the favourites to win the Premier League due to their five point advantage over Manchester City.

"We have five points advantage which in this league is not a lot because every game is very difficult. Leagues are competitions where not just your results count."

Mourinho went on to say that he is expecting a tough match against West Ham United on Wednesday.

"West Ham are a good team," he added. "They can be everything: defensively very strong, very dangerous in attack, very dangerous playing direct football with long balls to target men, and also very dangerous attacking spaces and trying to play on the counter-attack with fast people like [Diafra] Sakho and [Enner] Valencia."

"They have in their hands different ways of playing football and thinking about the game. With a very good coach like Sam it's always difficult to play them."

Meanwhile, West Ham will also be hoping to pick up some points against Chelsea despite them being the underdogs in this fixture.

The Hammers started the 2014/15 campaign on a very positive note, rising to as high as the third position in the Premier League in December.

However, they have not been in good form of late, managing to record only a single win in their last five Premier League fixtures.

And West Ham boss Sam Allardyce claims that his side have been unlucky to drop points in many games that they should have easily won.

"It's not been anywhere near as good as it should have been," said Allardyce, according to ESPN. "The fact we've been in the lead so many times and not won the game has been the huge disappointment."

"It wasn't just we weren't able to beat Man United and Tottenham, we were also up against Swansea, West Brom -- if we had converted even three of those into victories we'd still be talking about the Europa League places."

The 60-year-old boss says that his side are again looking to get on a "winning streak" so that they can again climb up in the Premier League table.

"With 11 games still to go it still has to be our goal that we will get on a winning streak and instead of drawing games we'll win them. If we can do that until the end of the season we might get around there again."

West Ham: Adrian, Jenkinson, Reid, Tomkins, Cresswell, Song, Noble, Kouyate, Downing, Nolan, Valencia
