Chelsea football club on Monday night secured their second win of the season in the English Premier League after defeating Fulham FC 2-0 away at Craven Cottage courtesy of two quick goals from Mykhailo Mudryk and Armando Broja.
The Ukrainian gave the away side the lead in the 18th minute when he controlled Levi Colwill’s chipped cross with his chest before finishing under Bernd Leno.
Broja netted the second one minute after to register his first goal for the Blues since October, 2022 as Chelsea climbed up from 15th position to 11th on the log.
All efforts by Fulham to score in the game proved abortive as the only serious chance they had fell to Sasa Lukic in the second half when his shot from inside the six-yard box was well saved by Robert Sanchez.
Mudryk was withdrawn at half-time with a quad injury but boss Mauricio Pochettino was hopeful the winger would be fit enough to play at Burnley on Saturday.
Pochettino was pleased to see his side take three points and deserve it.
He said: “We got what we deserved. The first half we were much better than Fulham. The second half we were in control. I’m so happy because the players needed this victory and so did the fans. We now have two victories in less than one week. We needed to feel the taste of victory, and another clean sheet also.”
