“Blues were looking effortlessly on their way to securing their second league win of the season.
On Monday, Chelsea secured a crucial and well-deserved 2-0 victory against Fulham, thanks to goals from Michailo Mudrik and Armando Broja.
Mauricio Pochettino’s lineup didn’t hesitate, netting two rapid goals during the initial half at Craven Cottage, presenting the opposing side with a daunting task, and Chelsea successfully clinched their second Premier League win of the season.
For the London side, scoring their first goal would be particularly pleasing as they skillfully finished off a Levi Colville cross. However, there is some concern about the Ukrainian star as he went off injured with a clear knock during halftime.
Just seconds after the salami batsman’s substitution, Broja made an easy start in his debut and capitalized on a Tim Ream mistake to score a second goal for his team.
Chelsea looked impressive from the start, creating problems for Fulham with their pressure and quick passing.Although the host team displayed glimpses of a potential comeback during the latter part of the match, Pochettino’s squad observed the outcome and will be aiming for further encouraging performances in the future
Goalkeeper and Defense
Robert Sanchez (6/10):
Made an excellent save with his feet after 77 minutes and commanded his penalty area well.

The right-back was once again full of energy as he successfully dealt with any threats coming his way.

Read the game well and distributed the ball effectively.

Delivered a fantastic cross for Mudrik’s salami batsman and put the ball inside with some tackles on the other end.

Michailo Mudrik (8/10):
Fully chested the ball and scored his first goal neatly between the goalkeeper’s legs. It’s unfortunate that he had to be substituted at halftime due to an injury.
Substitutes and Manager
Ian Matteson (6/10):
Looked comfortable coming in for Mudrik at halftime and hitting the post on the other end. However, his performance wasn’t as impactful as last week against Brighton.
Raheem Sterling (5/10):
Made an effort to create some fantastic runs in the last 25 minutes to seize his opportunity.
Leslie Ugochukwu (5/10):
Didn’t get much chance to make an impact on the game after coming on the field in the final 12 minutes.
Alex Matos (N/A):
Came on for his cameo, but only for the last few seconds.
Noni Maduke (N/A):
Took Kasedo’s place in the end.
Mauricio Pochettino (8/10):
Had to contend with multiple injuries and setbacks, but he fielded a team that fought from the beginning and fulfilled their promise. Watching Mudrik and Broja score will be a big motivation, showing that he has players available to pose a threat.”
Chelsea FC, recognized as Chelsea Football Club, stands as a prominent football (soccer) team rooted in the heart of London, England.
This renowned football club, often referred to as Chelsea Football Club (FC) and fondly nicknamed ‘The Blues,’ holds a prominent position as one of the globe’s most affluent, expansive, and accomplished football organizations. It is known for its star players and aggressive style of play.
Chelsea Football Club was established in 1905 under the leadership of Henry Augustus Mears. They play their home games at Stamford Bridge Stadium, which was originally chosen by Mears for the club.
In recent times, the team’s fortunes have seen a mix of successes and challenges. Up until the 1950s, the club struggled to secure major trophies and often experienced fluctuating performances across different divisions. Yet, in the 1990s and the early years of the 21st century, Chelsea experienced a remarkable resurgence, establishing themselves as one of the most successful clubs in English football.
They secured the English Premier League title in both the 2004-05 and 2005-06 seasons, building upon their earlier league triumph in 1954-55 (when it was known as the Football League First Division), thereby becoming the second English team to attain consecutive championship victories. The inception of the Premier League occurred in 1992.
Chelsea bolstered their position by securing a fourth league title during the 2009-10 season, setting a remarkable new benchmark in the Premier League with a total of 103 goals scored during that campaign.
Additionally, they claimed league championships in both the 2014-15 and 2016-17 seasons. In 2012, the club celebrated their maiden UEFA Champions League title triumph.”
Chelsea FC has also won the Football Association Challenge Cup (FA Cup) eight times.
