Not many pundits rated Chelsea highly after Thomas Tuchel’s first game in charge of the club.

The new Blues gaffer rolled out a 3-4-2-1 system in his first game in charge of Chelsea, and it was total domination from start to finish for the Blues.

However, for all of Chelsea’s possession of the ball, chances were far and few, with the Blues restricted to only a handful of chances. However, Chelsea were close to winning the game with a late Kai Havertz header.

Former England striker Peter Crouch believes a late goal for Chelsea would have papered over a disappointing performance, as he revealed that Chelsea couldn’t break down a solid Wolves defence with their slow brand of possession football.

“They did [have a chance] right at the end there, [Kai] Havertz had a chance,” Crouch said.

“But I think that would have papered over it a little bit really.

“Wolves came for the draw, they were so defensive. [Chelsea] just weren’t quick enough moving it through the lines.”
