Chelsea enjoyed a 2-0 victory against AFC Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday in the Blues’ return from the World Cup break.
Chelsea got on the front foot in the 16th minute when a sweeping move culminated in Kai Havertz converting from Raheem Sterling’s perfectly weighted pass. Eight minutes later, Mason Mount provided a second goal with a superb finish.
Christian Pulisic had a goal ruled out before half-time, but the two early goals decided the result as Chelsea put in a positive display that saw the Blues move up a place to go eighth on the Premier League table.
