Chelsea beat struggling Wolves at Stamford Bridge

Havertz's first-half goal was his 14th league goal for Chelsea and Mount's second assist of the season

Armando Broja scored his first Chelsea goal in a dominant victory over a lacklustre Wolves, who remain without a permanent manager.

Kai Havertz opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time but the Blues could have put the game out of sight long before then.

Christian Pulisic doubled the lead, playing a one-two with Mason Mount and sending the ball sailing past goalkeeper Jose Sa before Armando Broja hammered into the bottom corner with his left foot late on.

The game marked Graham Potter’s first home Premier League victory as Chelsea boss.

Potter made wholesale changes from his side’s 2-1 win over Crystal Palace last weekend, swapping seven players and showcasing the depth in his side, with Conor Gallagher earning a start after scoring the winner last time out and Reece James and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the bench.

Wolves, playing their first match since sacking manager Bruno Lage last weekend, were unorganised and Diego Costa, making his first start for the Midlands club against his former side, struggled to get in the game with the team hemmed in their own half.

They remain stuck in the relegation zone having lost their last three matches, while Chelsea move to fourth.
