Chelsea 6-0 Wolves

25 September 2012

Blues cruise to Wolves win

Chelsea romped into the fourth round of the Capital One Cup by blitzing Wolverhampton Wanderers 6-0. 

The Blues picked up their biggest win for almost 21 months thanks to goals from Gary Cahill, Ryan Bertrand, Juan Mata, Oriol Romeu, Fernando Torres and Victor Moses. 

Ronald Zubar set the tone, tripping Moses for a right-wing free-kick Mata crossed to the far post, Cahill doing his hopes of succeeding John Terry in the England defence no harm by stooping to head home in his best impression of his skipper. 

Chelsea's fringe men and youngsters, who looked really lively, then combined for the second goal in the seventh minute. 

Romeu's shot was saved by Dorus De Vries but Lucas Piazon kept the ball in and turned it back for an unmarked Bertrand to blast home. 

The third goal was an exhibition from the established stars in the team, Mata starting and finishing a flowing move, exchanging passes with both Ramires and Torres before finishing expertly. 

The home side struck quickly again when Moses drew De Vries into bringing him down and they were finally awarded a penalty after several recent snubs. 

Romeu made no mistake from the spot for his first Chelsea goal. 

Peszko fluffed another finish from 12 yards not long after the restart and Torres' travails continued when his latest shot was deflected behind. 

But they finally ended when he powered home a 58th-minute header from Mata's resultant corner. 

That was the cue for a raft of changes, with new arrival Oscar crossing for Moses to power home for his first Chelsea goal, in what was his full debut, with 19 minutes remaining to complete the scoring.
