Before Mudryk’s opener against Fulham, Chelsea had failed to convert any of their previous 47 goal attempts in the Premier League.

Remarkably, only 82 seconds elapsed between Mudryk’s goal and Armando Broja’s strike.

Pochettino will undoubtedly be thrilled to witness two of his struggling players propel the Blues to a crucial away victory.

The victory was a crucial one for Chelsea, who had failed to win any of their previous three Premier League matches.

It also provided Mauricio Pochettino with a much-needed boost as he looks to turn things around at Stamford Bridge.

My analysis of the event is as follows:

I was impressed by Chelsea’s performance in the first half. They were well-organized and clinical, and they took their chances well.

Mudryk’s goal was particularly impressive, as he showed great skill and composure to finish past Leno.

Fulham improved in the second half, but they were unable to find a way back into the game. Chelsea defended well and limited Fulham’s chances.

Overall, it was a good performance from Chelsea and a deserved victory. I am particularly pleased to see Mudryk and Broja score their first goals for the club.

Hopefully, this victory will give Chelsea the confidence to kick on and start winning games more consistently.
