Away crisis for Chelsea – 1-2 loss to Wolverhampton

Chelsea suffered another defeat away from home, with Wolves winning 2-1 in the Premier League on Christmas Eve.


Thus, Chelsea celebrates Christmas in tenth place with 22 points – a full 18 points behind Arsenal, who leads the league. Wolverhampton also rose to 11th place with 22 points.

Mauricio Pochettino has had a very difficult autumn as Chelsea coach. The team lost 8 out of 18 matches, and the team suffered its fourth loss away from home in a row in the English Premier League. Newcastle, Manchester United and Everton beat the London side before Wolves also succeeded.

Mario Lemina headed home a 1-0 lead from a corner kick very early in the second half. The hosts were at their best after the break.

Wolves went on to make it 2-0 in extra time. Substitute Matt Doherty was only on the pitch for a few minutes before extending the lead for the hosts.

Chelsea pulled one back soon after through Christopher Nkunku.

Chelsea should be ahead after the first half. Among other things, Raheem Sterling gave away a goal when he finished the ball himself instead of setting up the ball for a teammate positioned in the open goal.

Sterling received a yellow card later in the match. As a result, he was suspended for the next round of the series.

Wolves centre-back Craig Dawson did not complete the match and it is feared he may have suffered an injury that will keep him out of action for a long period.
