Man City 4-0 Southampton: Haaland on target as Cityzens sweep pass Saints; Chelsea 3-0 Wolves: Broja bags first Chelsea goal >>>

Erling Haaland was on the scoresheet again as Manchester City decimated Southampton by 4-0. The Norwegian completed the scoring in the 65th minutes after a delightful ball from Joao Cancelo. Cancelo was the one that started the goal spree in the first half. Foden and Mahrez were also on target for the Cityzens.

Meanwhile, at Stamford Bridge, Diego Costa’s homecoming did not end well for him and his new team as Chelsea defeated them by 3-0. Kai Havertz opened the scoring in the first half before Christian Pulisic doubled the scoreline after the restart. Armando Broja bagged his first Chelsea goal in the 90th minute with a sublime effort!

Chelsea vs Wolves – Starting XI

Well that’s a heavily-rotated Chelsea side! Seven changes from the side that beat Crystal Palace last week.

Silva is not in the squad at all, presumably rested ahead of the trip to face AC Milan in midweek, while Sterling, James and Aubameyang are among those on the bench. It means chances for Gallagher, Loftus-Cheek, Havertz and Pulisic.

As for Wolves, Costa leads the line for them as expected. No Neto, who is out with injury, so Traore, Podence and Guedes are the three behind the striker.
