Chelsea Cruise Past Wolves In Costa’s Return To Stamford Bridge
Chelsea again put up another assured performance for their new manager, Graham Potter, with a comfortable victory at home.
The Blues had just defeated the Italian giant, AC Milan by a score of 3-0 in the Champions League the previous Wednesday, which fed their confidence more in the tie against wolves in the domestic league.
In the final seconds of the first half, Kai Havertz’s looping header gave Chelsea the momentum they needed to win. To the great annoyance of the Wolves, the goal was actually scored after the allotted extra time.
In the 54th minute, Christian Pulisic sunk the second goal, his first of the season and one that will undoubtedly boost his confidence.
Costa grinned and gave a few fans high fives, but it’s unclear what the visitors’ enclosure thought of the situation.
His place in the hearts of the fans is secure after two Premier League championships and 52 goals in 89 league appearances for Chelsea.
When Costa saw his number go up on the computer after 56 minutes, Wolves was already down 2-0 and on the verge of another defeat. Costa’s full debut for the Wolves had little impact.
The play was completed by substitute Armando Borja, who obtained the ball on the left, cut inside, and curled the ball into the farthest corner for his first goal for the team.
Now that Graham has won twice in the Premier League, his team is in fourth place in the standings.
