Wolves without Ruben Neves and Jonny Otto for Chelsea visit

06 December 2018

However, they have also played down to the level of weaker teams, losing to Huddersfield and Cardiff in their last two games.

The score might've only been 1-0 - thanks to a deflected effort from Ruben Loftus-Cheek - but Chelsea were looking pretty comfortable at the break.

And it looked as though his contribution could prove decisive until the hosts struck twice in four minutes at a raucous Molineux.

The fightback consigned Chelsea to successive Premier League away defeats and left Maurizio Sarri with much to ponder ahead of welcoming leaders Manchester City to Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Wolves then turned the match on its head by scoring a second just four minutes later, with a low cross from Matt Doherty being tapped in at the back post by Diogo Jota.

Loftus-Cheek was given another chance to impress.

What does it mean?

Should his game time not increase, the midfielder is being tipped to leave on loan in the new year in the search of regular Premier League minutes.

With only 15 matches gone, the Blues are 10 points behind City - a gap that could be extended at the weekend.

It lifted Wolves up to 12th and was their first win for two months after five defeats in their previous six games, but Nuno insists his side still have a long way to go.

So will Chelsea supporters get to watch rarely-seen player Ethan Ampadu in the first team?

The Premier League match between Wolves and Chelsea will be broadcast online. The Italian admitted he was "really worried" by what he had seen thereafter as Wolves turned the game on its head through Diogo Jota's victor.

Teenage midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White was impressive for the hosts on his first Premier League start and may have marked it with a goal on 38 minutes had Cesc Fabregas, of all people, not made a vital block as the Wolves youngster ran onto a smart knockdown from Jimenez.
