Wolves fought back from a goal down to stun Chelsea and gain their first victory in seven English Premier League matches,thanks to a 2-1 win secured at the Molineux Stadium.
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 while Antonio
Rudiger’s shot went off target before N’Golo Kante fired an attempt just wide.
Those misses however 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.
The result of the game marked a 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.
