Chelsea returned to winning ways in the Premier League with a 2-0 victory over Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.
Chelsea were looking to bounce back from their poor form before the World Cup break and a game against Bournemouth at home was the perfect chance.
Chelsea vs Bournemouth first half
Chelsea began the game on the front foot, pinning Bournemouth back into their own box and looking for openings. Graham Potter started with Havertz, Raheem Sterling and Christian Pulisic in attack.
That attacking prowess paid off as early as the 16th minute for Chelsea as Havertz opened the scoring. He instinctively put the finishing touch to a quick move, arriving late in the box to slide home a pass by Raheem Sterling.
Chelsea doubled their lead soon after. This time, a scrap just inside the penalty area saw the ball fall to Havertz who set up Mason Mount to curl home a pinpoint effort into the corner to give the home side a healthy advantage.
Bournemouth keeper, Mark Travers, made two good saves from Reece James and Sterling before the interval to keep his team in the game.
Chelsea vs Bournemouth second half
The second half started with a bit of misfortune for Chelsea as Reece James went down injured and had to be replaced by Cesar Azpilicueta.
Chelsea were denied a third goal on several occasions. Travers denied Mount from close range before Kalidou Koulibaly headed narrowly wide.
Despite being unable to increase their lead it was a good day at the office for Graham Potter and his side and they will now look to build momentum.
