Chelsea drew first blood in the game against Wolves at the Molineux Stadium courtesy of an Olivier Giroud strike shortly after the restart, but the home side scored twice with a stoppage time goal from Neto sealing a 2-1 victory for Wolves.

See the player ratings below

Mendy: Would be disappointed for being beaten at his near post for the first goal and couldn’t do much for the second. 5/10

Reece James: Didn’t seem at his best with his deliveries tonight and was easily closed down at the right flank. 6/10

Thiago Silva: His clearance header landed at Podence’s feet for the hosts’ goal. Other than that, he did decently at the back. 6/10

Zouma: Hit the bar in the first half with a stunning header, but was easily beaten by Neto for Wolves dying minute goal. 5/10

Chilwell: Provided the assist for Olivier Giroud’s opener. Did okay in the first half, but his second half performance seemed to lack same bite as the first. 6/10

Kante: Did his normal job at working hard and clearing dangers in the middle of the park, but it somehow seemed like a disjointed performance from Chelsea in midfield nevertheless. 6/10

Mount: Worked hard as usual, but the final ball from midfield was missing tonight. 5/10

Kai Havertz: Yet another awful performance from the German who’s trying to get to grips with the Premier League. Seemed to give his best but he was just not good enough. 4/10

Pulisic: Back to the team after being out with hamstring worries. Started the game brightly, but faded out afterwards. 6/10

Timo Werner: This was a very poor night for the German. His passes were sloppy and he never flowed well with the forward players. 5/10

Giroud: Scored a good goal as he took Chilwell’s delivery with a one time left foot volley for Chelsea’s goal. Did a good job until he was subbed off. 7/10

Subs

Kovacic: Came on for Havertz with about 20 minutes left and produced some good runs with the ball. 5/10

Tammy Abraham: Really tried to work hard after replacing Giroud in the 71st minute, but lacked service. 5/10

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
