Chelsea surprisingly lost to Wolves 2-1 at the Molineux Stadium on Wednesday night, and it was a game where Maurizio Sarri’s side clearly dominated the first-half.
Momentary lapses in the second half turned the game on its head, and two quick goals from Wolves sealed Chelsea’s second defeat of the season.
14 minutes after the restart, Morgan Gibbs-White fed Raúl Jiménez for Wolves opener, as the striker drilled a low effort beyond Kepa Arrizabalaga to stun Chelsea.
Four minutes after Wolves leveler, Willian lazily lost the ball in front of the defence only for Diogo Jota to tap in the winner.
Although there was a foul on Willian, the Brazilian lazily left the ball, and referee Jonathan Moss waved away Willian’s appeal for a foul.
Sarri was asked if there was a foul in the buildup to the goal, but the Chelsea admitted that he didn’t know and chose to focus on the team’s attitude.
Sarri told the press: “I don’t know, but I think it is more important to talk about our attitude, the first goal. We were not the same team. It was not for me. I have to understand why. Only for a goal. We had to play 35 minutes after that.”
