It was a heartbreaking defeat at the Molineux Stadium on Tuesday night, as Wolves came from behind to beat Chelsea 2-1.

The Blues had gone up through Olivier Giroud shortly after the restart, before Daniel Podence levelled things up.

The game was looking like an end to end encounter towards the end, as both teams pressed for the winner. However, Wolves seemed the more likely side to score as they worked very hard, formed a good defensive block and pressed on the counter.

A 95th minute goal gave Wolves the winner, much to the dismay of Frank Lampard.

Former Chelsea star Joe Cole, questioned the fitness of the Chelsea players after the loss.

Joe Cole told Amazon Prime Video: “I think Frank might have to take a view on a few players who looked a little bit leggy, they’ve got the squad.

“Everton was a bump in the road, this is a little bit of a bigger bump. I don’t think you change too much, maybe just tweak a few players here and there. In this game they just looked a little bit jaded.”

The good news is that Chelsea will have enough rest until next week Monday to refresh themselves and try to return to winning ways.
