Wolves two goals were not enough as Chelsea score five past Nuno Santo’s side.
Chelsea won the second game under Frank Lampard with a 5-0 victory over Wolves at Molineux. The Blues opened the scoring through a spectacular 35-yard strike from the centre-back Fikayo Tomori in the 31st minute.
It was followed by another two goals before the half-time by the striker Tammy Abraham, who gave defenders run for the money. He tapped the ball in to secure his first goal of the evening, while the English International struck a firm header to extend the lead to three goals before the half-time whistle.
The Blues set the same tone for the second half. When Abraham received a long ball from the Blues defender, he controlled the ball and his movement took the defender way from him. He was clear on goal and scored his first hat-trick for the English side.
Wolves tried to script a comeback in the second half, but it didn’t prove sufficient. They scored through Saiss and Cutrone to put pressure on Frank Lampard’s side. However, Mason Mount’s strike in the final minute completed a resounding scoreline for this young Chelsea side.
We shall look at five talking points between Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
#1 Tammy Abraham continues to thrive
Tammy Abraham is Premier League’s top scorer currently. The young striker, who found the back of the net thrice today, has a total tally of seven goals this season. The English International has not been underwhelming when provided with the much-needed service.
The Chelsea graduate was in an on-side position when Mason Mount’s shot was blocked by Conor Coady. In the rebound, Abraham had his say and saw the net bulge. He also found himself in a position as Marcos Alonso produced an exceptional delivery to pick out the striker inside the six-yard box. Abraham used his aerial prowess to divert the ball into the back of the net.
His technique spoke volumes during the third goal. Control, technique, and shooting – it had it all. He controlled the ball and dragged the defender out of his path in a spectacular way to slot the ball past Rui Patricio. Apart from goalscoring, his overall game was top-notch and won the man of the match award deservingly.
