There had been a wait for a place in the first team due to the upturn in form for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Nevertheless, getting off the mark in Blue will no doubt do wonders for his confidence and chances of getting more gametime.

Rice is still very much linked with a return to Stamford Bridge. The interest in him has seemingly not disappeared despite the departure of Thomas Tuchel.

The move would see him unite forces with good friend Mount, with the pair frequently being teammates with England.

The Chelsea man meanwhile is reportedly in discussions over signing a new contract. The Blues are looking to follow the situation they managed to secure with Reece James.

Mount’s form this season has picked up drastically since the hiring of Graham Potter, with him being a near ever-present since his introduction.

A couple of assists against Wolves will no doubt do his confidence the world of good, and he will be likely to feature in the crucial Champions League match at the San Siro against AC Milan tomorrow.

Broja will also be hoping that his cameo at the weekend will be enough to see him handed the big opportunity in Italy.
