Chelsea lost 2-1 at Wolves on Tuesday night thanks a stoppage time goal from Wolves forward Pedro Neto.

Chelsea legend Frank Leboeuf has blamed Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic for the loss to Wolves.

According to Leboeuf, Chelsea was having a bad day and should have held on for a draw but instead Kovacic committed too much in search of Chelsea’s winner, leaving too much space for Wolves to score their winner from a counterattack.

“If at least you’re having a bad day and you think you cannot win, please try not to lose the game,” Leboeuf told ESPN.

“We saw that Liverpool didn’t lose, the two Manchester clubs drew so they share points but Chelsea lost because they wanted to win the last game and they lost again today because they tried to win in the last minute.

“I want to see players like Thiago Silva, N’Golo Kante, Kovacic – players who have experience – to say, “Okay, we can’t win today so we don’t lose that’s the main thing we have to do”.

“The last minute, I saw Kovacic going forward and being too far away, therefore the counterattack – I don’t know if it’s Podence who got the ball and gave it to Neto – but he wasn’t in position, he should have stayed there.”
