Wolves v Chelsea confirmed lineups: Maurizio Sarri fields two academy products

Share

Ruben Loftus-Cheek put Chelsea ahead with a deflected shot in the 18th minute, but they failed to convert their possession dominance into a second goal and two strikes in four second-half minutes from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota turned the tide for the hosts.

"I am really very anxious, not for the result but the fact that after the first goal we conceded we did not react very well".

Maurizio Sarri says Chelsea played like a completely different team from the first half during the last 35 minutes of their defeat at Wolves.

"Maybe it was important for the result but not for me. We didn't react at all so I am really very anxious for this, not the result". "After the first goal, that was an accident because we were in control of the match, we were suddenly another team, without our distances and without our football".

'I think this is one of the best generation of (English) players for a long time. So I think they [Loftus-Cheek and Andreas Christensen] have to stay for us.

Chelsea do not want to let the midfielder leave but understand his frustrations and feel he's been patient in waiting for a chance.

The promoted side had made a positive start to the campaign after Wolves managed to secure a point in draws with Manchester City and Manchester United.

"I don't know [whether we should have had a penalty]".

The Blues kick off that run by travelling to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday night, while Premier League games with Manchester City, Brighton and Leicester City are just around the corner too.

Wolves have lost five of their last six matches, including against fellow promoted side Cardiff City in their previous fixture. We have to play and fight for the top four.
