[Video]: Wolverhampton Wanderers 2 – 1 Chelsea


Wolverhampton Wanderers 2 – 1 Chelsea – Wolves fought back from a goal down to stun Chelsea and gain their first victory in seven Premier League matches.

The visitors went ahead when Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s 25-yard effort was headed into his own net by Wolves captain Conor Coady.

Chelsea had chances to extend their lead but Willian had a free-kick tipped over, Antonio Rudiger shot off target and N’Golo Kante fired just wide.

Those misses proved costly as Raul Jimenez’s low strike, following a fine run from 18-year-old midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White, made it level.

Wolves scored what proved to be the winner four minutes later as Matt Doherty’s cross was finished at the back post by Diogo Jota for his first Premier League goal.

It is now back-to-back away league defeats for Maurizio Sarri’s side, who drop down to fourth below Tottenham and remain 10 points behind leaders Manchester City, who they play at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Wolverhampton Wanderers 2 – 1 Chelsea | English Premier League – Match Highlights

18′ 0 – 1 Ruben Loftus-Cheek shot is deflected into the net by Conor Coady! Chelsea take the lead as Ruben Loftus-Cheek fires a shot in from just outside the box. Conor Coady tries to clear but instead heads the ball past his keeper. For now it’s been awarded as a Loftus-Cheek goal but don’t be surprised if it ends up being classed as a Coady own goal.
59′ 1 – 1 Raul Jiménez levels! Scenes. Wolves are level with their first shot on target. Morgan Gibbs-White plays the ball through to Raul Jimenez, who is at a tight angle. I don’t know how he’s going to score from there. But he just blasts the ball at Kepa Arrizabalaga and it somehow goes through the keeper as if he was a ghost or a hologram.

63′ 2 – 1 Diogo Jota gives Wolves the lead! Wow. Wolves have turned this round in a couple of minutes. Chelsea think Willian is bundled off the ball by Joao Moutinho, but he won the ball fairly. The Portuguese plays the ball to Matt Doherty, whose low cross is tapped in at the back post by Diogo Jota – his first Premier League goal.
