Wolves come from behind to beat wasteful Chelsea

Wolves come from behind to beat wasteful Chelsea

Chelsea take on Wolves in the Premier League on Wednesday and Maurizio Sarri will surely be resting a couple of his first-team players.

Chelsea lost more ground in the Premier League title race, and left its coach "really very worried", after squandering an early lead to go down 2-1 at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday.

The result sees Chelsea drop to fourth in the Premier League after 15 matches, and they trail leaders Manchester City by 10 points ahead of Saturday's meeting between the two clubs at Stamford Bridge. We have had a block of games with mistakes, from a team which is still growing.

"I think we played very well for 55 minutes", Sarri said. I think there is no chance, ... it's very hard to find a central midfielder technically like Fabregas.

"It depends on the mentality of the team, I think".

"I am really very anxious, not for the result, but for the fact we did not respond to the first goal", the Chelsea boss added.




The Mirror reports that the player's immediate future is still unclear as we approach the January transfer window.

Maurizio Sarri, however, made it clear that there was no chance of Loftus-Cheek leaving the Londoners. "He has played in the Europa League and League Cup, some in the Premier League but not starting".

Raul Jimenez brought the scores level, his rasping finish from a narrow angle proving too hot for Kepa Arrizabalaga and the comeback was complete when Matt Doherty's low cross to the far post found Diogo Jota unmarked to tap home.

Ryan Bennett and Willy Boly produced similarly heroic last-ditch challenges to deny Willian and Alvaro Morata either side of the break, and those interventions took on added importance as Wolves struck twice in quick succession around the hour through Jimenez and Jota.

"Of course I am disappointed", Sarri said.

The young midfielder could develop his game with a ball-playing team like Wolves and he would bolster Nuno's squad in the short-term.
