Chelsea registered another victory at Stamford Bridge, and they are now on a three-match winning streak. Graham Potter made seven changes to his starting lineup and only Mount, Kepa, Loftus-Cheek and Chalobah retained their places on the team sheet.
The Blues had a fantastic performance and Havertz, Pulisic, and Broja were on the scoresheet in the 3-0 victory. Below are the talking points from the match:
1. Diego Costa's standing ovation
The ex-Chelsea forward won two EPL titles with the Blues in West London. Costa made a return to Stamford Bridge and was spearheading Wolverhampton's attacking line. The veteran forward was replaced a few minutes into the second half, and on his way to the bench, he was applauded by Chelsea fans at Stamford Bridge.
2. Magical Mount
The English playmaker was the architect behind Chelsea's two goals. He was very creative. The Englishman had a talismanic performance and he occupied the pockets of space in the attacking line to influence the play. Mount got two assists to himself after setting up Havertz's opening goal and setting up Pulisic in the second half.
3. Kepa Back to-back clean sheets
The Spaniard started in between the lines against the wolves and he registered another clean sheet after a victory against AC Milan. Despite not being tested enough, he produced a brilliant save to deny the wolves a consolation.
4. Firing on all cylinders.
Chelsea's attackers are getting better and better after every game. Last Wednesday, Aubumayeng scored, and on Saturday evening, Havertz, Pulisic, and Broja scored. This shows that there is healthy competition in the Chelsea forward line and this could elevate the Blues to another level.
