Wolves vs Chelsea (PL) Sat 14th Sep 15:00 GMT

Recommended Posts


5 goals away to wolves is outstanding by any team, 5 goals by academy graduates is almost unthinkable. This is a massive day for Chelsea fc, hopefully it gets the recognition it deserves by the club. Also the reaction in the media will be very Interesting, imagine of this had been done by one of there darlings. 

Oh and still 3 more young uns to come.... Fantastic.

Listened to commentary of the game, pity we did not keep a clean sheet. It just not appear in the team’s DNA to play defensive. 4.2 up with 6 minutes to go and Chelsea defenders still pushing forward. Chelsea without doubt most exciting team in the PL (okay I maybe be bias).

Playing such open football might punish us against better opposition. 

Wish I had been there, went there last season. Fantastic result UTC.

WELL DONE BOYS! FANTASTIC RESULT.

Last time we scored five goals away from home in the PL was against Swansea City in early 2015.

Couldn’t have come at a better time. Massive win to build momentum.

This side ATM feels like a cross between a stereotypical Zeman and Bielsa side.

When we get it right we can cut through opponents, but we are just as likely to be cut through ourselves.

Frank switching to a 3-4-2-1 formation at the last minute worked very well because it meant that we could outnumber Wolves in midfield when necessary (as Willian and Mount could track back to create a 4-man midfield) and create a 3 vs 3 situation against their defensive line whenever Willian and Mount advanced forward. Additionally, our 3 CB's were able to smother their two strikers - obviously that would not have been so easy if we retained 2 CB's at the back. Plus, Alonso is definitely more suited to a LWB position than an LB position, even though Troare could and did scorch him.

Other thoughts:

1) That goal from Tomori was a bit of improvisational brilliance that could put Luiz to shame. An absolute belter. Nice run into the box to set up Tammy's first as well.

2) Tammy Abraham again chewing a lesser-ranked opponent up, He didn't really strike me as anything special in the air last season, but this season he's been a real aerial presence. His headers, here and against Sheffield United, were accurately targeted towards the corner. We did know, however, that he was quite strong and he proved it again when he shrugged off Coady before slotting it in the corner. It's not yet clear whether or not his movement/ball control is good enough against the very best defences, but we've been crying out for a striker than can put away goals against the lesser sides, and it seems that Tammy is that man. Great to see.

3) I knew that Jorginho had those Xabi Alonso-style long passes in him; I just wish he would unfurl them more often. His long ball to Tammy for his hat-trick was spot on.

4) Mason Mount proves yet again that he's a real offensive threat, what with his movement and his bombing runs into the box. His goal was a dead-ringer for the one that Hazard scored against Man U back in October 2016 - one-on-one with the opposition center-back, completely wrong-foots him, and then slots the ball into the right-corner. Brilliant.

5) Again individual defensive lapses cost us. It appears that Saiss wasn't man-marked properly for the first goal, For the second goal, it seems that our defence over-committed, and Kepa not properly deflecting the ball did the rest.

Still, a very good win against a side that could have caused us a lot of problems (and did last season). I hope to god that Kante is right for Liverpool, though.

Keep the blue flag flying high, and all that. ::ChElSeaFLag::

What are your ratings for Jorginho please from 1 to 10?

1= Dogsh*t

10=Dopesh*t

your thoughts please?

never been overly impressed with him, very poor the first half with so many poor passes, didn't offer much in the 2nd IMO..'5' for finding his way to the ground...

if today was his first assist then that tells you everything you need to know for someone playing in this position for a year now...despite his slowing down Cesc would offer much more with these kids and chip in with a few goals himself..

Fantastic win. Great time to be a chelsea fan at the moment. 

Defence was shaky withouy zouma, but we look so exciting going forward, and finally have a striker that puts the ball in the net for fun.

Look forward to being 4th on motd tonight 😂

Excluding own-goals, Chelsea have become the first team in Premier League history to have 11 consecutive Premier League goals scored by players aged 21 or younger. Zest.

Tammy Abraham is the first player in Premier League history to score a hat-trick and an own goal in the same game. Involved.

 Tammy Abraham (21y 347d) has become the youngest ever Chelsea player to score a Premier League hat-trick, and is the youngest Englishman to do so in the competition since Raheem Sterling (v Bournemouth) in October 2015. Outstanding.

 Tammy Abraham is the third player in Premier League history to score 2+ goals in three consecutive appearances aged 21 or younger, after Cristiano Ronaldo in December 2006 and Dele Alli in January 2017. Shining.


Tammy Abraham is the first English player in Chelsea to score a hat-trick in Premier League since legend Frank Lampard in 2011 against Bolton

Every goal from an academy player feels double sweet.

We've still got Reece, CHO, RLC to come back as well, this guys are going to gain so much from this coming season.

I only remember him playing when he gave the ball away or pass was too far over the top. Other than those moments, was he on the pitch?
