Sharing points with Wolves, Chelsea lost their breath in the race to win the Premier League
Entering the visit to Wolves on the field with the absence of 7 players due to Covid-19 infection, Chelsea played extremely hard.
In the 15th minute, goalkeeper Mendy’s net was shaken after Podence’s finish. Fortunately for Chelsea, the line umpire flagged for offside and the goal was disallowed.
Quickly stabilizing the squad, Chelsea’s attack was better at the end of the half.
However, stars like Pulisic, Mount, Ziyech … were tightly blocked and could not create many dangerous balls on Wolves’ goal. The first half of the match ended with a 0-0 draw.
Entering the second half, Chelsea showed their determination to win with superior ball control (Chelsea held the ball 72% in the second half).
However, the final finish of the London team proved ineffective when on the field without two main strikers, Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku (infected with Covid-19).
Home team Wolves play solid defense and rarely go up to attack. Therefore, their finishing opportunities in this match are not many.
The stalemate was maintained until the referee blew the whistle to end the game. The score 0 – 0 may satisfy the home team Wolves, but it is a big disappointment for Chelsea.
Winning only 1 point in this match made coach Thomas Tuchel and his team widen the gap to 6 points by the top team Manchester City.
