Chelsea won 3-0 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday thanks to goals from Kai Havertz, Christian Pulisic, and Armando Broja, giving new manager Graham Potter his first Premier League home win.
Before thrashing AC Milan on Wednesday, Chelsea secured a last-second victory at Crystal Palace in Potter’s first league game. They then continued their winning ways against managerless Wolves with a final score that accurately reflected their superiority.
Chelsea had 70% of the first half’s possession with 12 shots on goal, four of which were on target, but they were unable to capitalize on their pressure due to both their own carelessness and a run of excellent saves from Jose Sa.
Just before halftime, Havertz finally made a breakthrough when Sa, who was off his line, was helpless to stop his looping header that matched the equally superb ball from Mason Mount.
In the first half, Pulisic missed some of Chelsea’s finest opportunities and had Sa tip his curling effort away. However, 10 minutes into the second half, he made up for it by playing a quick one-two with Mount and dinking the ball over the advancing goalie.
The visitors were never really in the contest, and Broja hammered home a through ball from Mateo Kovacic to seal a comfortable win and cap a perfect afternoon for Potter.
