Chelsea’s woes continued as they were on Sunday beaten by Wolves barely days after advancing into the League Cup semi-finals.
In what was their fourth consecutive away defeat of the season, Chelsea just live Wolves failed to assert their dominance in the clash with very few shorts recorded by both sides in the first few minutes after kick off.
It was up to the half hour mark when Raheem Stirling picked the ball from Joao Gomes but instead of passing it to Cole Palmer and Nicholas Jackson, he opted to go alone before his short was saved by Jose Sa.

Even though the host had fewer chances, Hwang Hee-chan pulled a surprise move but the ball went above the bar sending both sides without any goal at the break.
In the second half Wolves stepped up their efforts and it paid off when Sarabia’s corner was guided behind Chelsea net by Mario Lemina.
The results forced Mauricio Pochettino to make a double change brining in Christopher Nkuku who combination with Sterling caused problem for the Wolves defense who responded 11 minutes to the end of the clash through Matt Doherty.
Nkuku pulled one for the visitors but it was too late for a comeback or an equalizer. The results leaves Chelsea in 10th position with 22 points from 18 matches played and 18 points behind league leaders Arsenal.
