Chelsea returned to winning ways in the Premier League after defeating visiting AFC Bournemouth 2-0 at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday evening.
The Blues were quick off the blocks as they moved the ball in a fast manner. Graham Potter’s side were duly rewarded as Kai Havertz and Mason Mount both found the back of the net in the opening period to set Chelsea on their way to victory.
The visitors soon regrouped and offered a much more sterner test in the second half, though the Blues held on as they walked away with all three points and snapped a three-match winless run in the Premier League.
