Chelsea continued their impressive performance under Graham Potter after another emphatic 3-0 win over Wolves at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon. The blues have now made it three wins out of three, scoring eight goals and conceding only one.
Graham Potter made seven changes to the team that won 3-0 against AC Milan in the Champions League. Kai Havertz gave Chelsea the lead before the break after the blues had created many chances and dominated the game.
Christian Pulisic and Armando Broja scored Chelsea’s second and third goals respectively to earn the blues the maximum points.
Former Liverpool star Steve Nicol has revealed he was impressed with Chelsea and added that Christian Pulisic’s performance has given Graham Potter something to think about.
What did Steve Nicol say about Chelsea’s win over Wolves?
The former Liverpool defender said on ESPN: “It’s difficult to put your finger on the changes Graham Potter has made [since Thomas Tuchel’s sacking], but it’s probably that every Chelsea player has a little skip in their step.
“When you get a new manager it’s almost like a new start and all the players are desperate to make Potter happy and show what they can do.
“I guess today, someone like Pulisic absolutely did that. He could’ve scored in the first half but he made up for it with his goal after half-time.
“If you’re Pulisic, you’re going home happy because you’ve given Potter something to think about.”
On changes Graham Potter had brought to Chelsea, He added: “Every manager – especially a new manager – wants to get some wins on the board and that’s three from three now.
“At Chelsea, you’re expected to win but you’re also expected to play good football. That’s why Potter will be delighted because they’re playing nice football and winning games.
“You can’t ask for more than that. He made lots of changes but they still won very comfortably. As well as they played, you have to say Wolves were so poor and it’s worrying times for them.”
Meanwhile, Graham Potter was a delight with his side’s performance, especially in the first half.
Reacting to Chelsea’s performance, Graham Potter said: “It wasn’t easy, that is for sure. They never are these Premier League games, especially as we played on Wednesday in a big game.
“To recover and prepare isn’t straightforward, but we have a good group that are committed, that are together, that are fighting for each other, so that is positive. I thought we played well in the first half; disappointed not to score earlier than we did.
“The goal was important when it came, and then credit to Wolves. They started the second half well. We had to adjust a little bit and then scored again at a good time.
“Maybe that was the breathing space we needed in the game and for Armando [Broja] to finish it off was great for us. It’s not a straightforward game. We had to fight for it and credit the boys because they did that.”
