Armando Broja impressed on loan last season with Southampton, and Chelsea rewarded the young striker by keeping him at the club.
The 20-year-old scored his first senior team goal for Chelsea, as he came off the bench in the 72nd minute.
Broja scored a fine strike to score Chelsea’s third of the night against Wolves.
Chelsea boss Graham Potter hailed Broja after the game and admitted that his patience paid off.
Potter said: “It’s his first goal and he’s been having an impact off the bench. You can see what he brings to the team.
“Again, he’s having to be patient but he’s working hard in training and I think that goal is a big goal for him.
“The boys from the Academy are vital. They bring an understanding of the culture of the club, demands of the club, what’s required in terms of environment.
“They’ve come from a fantastic education from the Academy so they’re good people and they’re good footballers. Our job now is to maximise their potential, which is really exciting.”
