Well that was better wasn't it. The game was over at half time and it was much more like the Chelsea performance we should be seeing week in, week out. Whether or not other sides would be as generous as Wolves were is another thing, but for once Chelsea took full advantage.

AVB had said prior to the game that there would be no dramatic changes to the side from Leverkusen and he made just two changes. Ashley Cole came back into the side in the place of Bosingwa and Oriol Romeu came into midfield in the place of Frank Lampard. It's the inclusion of Romeu that makes headlines this morning for two reasons. First of all because Lampard was on the bench (AVB revealed Lamps is on four yellows and needed him for Liverpool this week) and second of all because of the performance of Romeu (more on that coming in a later post).

We all wanted a better performance, an important three points and if possible a clean sheet and to be honest apart from one or two moments in the game, we never looked like conceding.

Chelsea got their first goal as the impressive once again Ramires, stole the ball off Wolves and moved forward to the edge of the box and fired low towards the bottom corner. Only a great save from Hennessey in goal denied the Brazilian as he pushed the ball wide for a corner. John Terry headed home from the resulting corner to make it 1-0 Chelsea.

Chelsea we well on top and made it 2-0 with a great flowing move. Raul Meireles laid the ball off to Ashley Cole and made a run forward into the Wolves half. Cole played the ball forward into his run and Meireles took a touch to control the ball, then a second to flick it past the defender out to Juan Mata wide on the left wing. Mata then took on his man and beat him to the byline, looked up and drilled a cross into Danny Sturridge 6 yards out who beat the defender to knock the ball home. 2-0 Chelsea.

We wrapped up the game right on half time. A high ball was played over to Drogba wide left on halfway. His touch to bring the ball under control turned the defender and he was off towards goal. He moved forward to the edge of the box and his attempt on target was blocked. Drogba under no pressure, had time and space to fetch the ball wide left and he played the ball back to Cole. Cole again with time to bring the ball under control, looked up and spotted Juan Mata on the penalty spot unmarked and played a cross onto Mata's left foot. Mata first time, caught the ball great and volleyed the ball high into the roof of the net giving the keeper no chance. 3-0 Chelsea.

It really was a better performance and nice to see Chelsea taking their chances. The second half was pretty much a non event and you have to hold your hands up and admit that Wolves came out and played much better. They still didn't create any real clear cut chances but we making much more of a game of it now.

Our second half performance wasn't as good as the first half and if anything, I would like to have seen Fernando Torres on a half time so we could continue taking the game to the opposition. Torres did come on for Drogba with just under 15 mins to go and Lampard with 20 mins to go but like I said the game was done and dusted by then.

Torres tried to get on the score sheet and created himself a half chance as he took on the defenders, got passed them to the right of centre of the pitch 20 yards out and tried to chip Hennessey but couldn't quite manage to get it high enough.

Danny Sturridge had another half chance as he took on his man and got to the byline 6 yards from the near post but, rather than flick the ball goalwards, he decided to cross the ball but there was no one there to flick it home.

Chelsea can be forgiven for taking it easy in the second half, but again alot of that is to do with how Wolves came out. They didn't want to concede any more goals.

If we want to be critical, we could say that Chelsea should have played with the same drive and intensity as the first half but they can be forgiven because we won an important game and with that a massive three points.
