Steven Bisig-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire
Chelsea are not being gracious hosts today as they quickly turned a Wolves visit into a glorified training session. The European champions lead 3-0 at the half.
There are still 45 minutes to go, but the result of Chelsea's League Cup tie appears to be all but a formality at this point. Gary Cahill opened the scoring only minutes into the game, and inside of ten minutes Chelsea had doubled the lead when Ryan Bertrand found the back of the net. Bertrand's tally was his first official goal for Chelsea (the community shield is a friendly after all), and it also marked the first assist in the career of one Lucas Piazon.
Chelsea wouldn't be done yet though, as Fernando Torres and Juan Mata would combine on some lovely sounding one-touch football to push the lead to three. Chelsea would allow Wolves a golden sounding opportunity when they Championship side managed to get an attacker around Ross Turnbull, but the Wolves attacker would harmlessly find the side of the net to keep it 3-0.
Chelsea should be able to comfortably see this one out now, the only questions really being who the three Chelsea subs will be and how ugly the final score ends up. I certainly hope Marko Marin gets his first official appearance for the club, and I wouldn't be upset to see Fernando Torres come off and push Victor Moses or Piazon into the center of the line. Maybe we'll even
see hear a new formation as Chelsea look to see this one out. Stay tuned, if you walk away from the speakers you may miss another goal.
