Chelsea’s first-half blitz overwhelmed Wolverhampton Wanderers and put their Barclays Premier League campaign back on track.

Captain John Terry headed home an early corner, Daniel Sturridge tapped home and Juan Mata struck in the twilight of a first half where Wolves were outplayed at Stamford Bridge

It took just seven minutes for The Blues to score the opener, as Terry headed home Mata’s corner after Wayne Hennessey denied Ramires.

Before the half-hour Sturrdige, who like in mid-week, consigned Fernando Torres to a place on the bench, knocked in the second following Mata teasing cross.

The Spaniard crowned a dominating performance at the end of the first-half after he fired in the roof of the away side’s net after Ashley Cole’s cross.

The result keeps Mick McCarthy’s side two-points above the drop zone, while Andre Villas-Boas’ side have closed the gap to Newcastle United to one-point.
