Wolverhampton Goal Scorers
It was Jimenez that drew the team level when the Mexican did brilliantly to shoot a low short pass Kepa Arrizapalaga in the 59th minute. England under 17 world cup winner Gibbs White did well to release Raul Jimenez before firing home.
Wolverhampton took the lead after just four minutes from when they were level. Jota is the man that converted well a chance to seal the win for his side.
Chelsea who had a penalty appeal waved off after Loftus Cheek did well to find Alvaro Morata. But the Spaniard was fouled by Conor Coady who captain Wolves. The referee waved play on but in all opinion, it should have been a foul.
Sarri handed Cesc Fabregas and Andres Christensen their first start of the season. It did not pay off considering they went on to lose a match that could have kept their 3rd Position on the League table.
Man of the match – Ruben Loftus-Cheek
Here is what he had to say after the match:
We had to [defend well] with the quality they have. We have a determination and want to win. But we need to show that in all our games, not just against the big teams.
We felt in control in the first half. We felt comfortable and were playing good football. They came out fast in the second half and we were sloppy as a team. If you’re sloppy you pay for it in the Premier League.
We should expect to play well whoever plays. We need to turn this around quickly because we have a tough game at the weekend [Manchester City]. We’re very disappointed. We pick our heads up and go again.
Wolverhampton vs Chelsea match result was quite the unexpected but it is football. One should always expect the unexpected. Chelsea would be taking on Man City this weekend. With Manchester City sitting top comfortable with a 10 point difference, Chelsea may have another mountain to climb.
