Premier League: Wolves stage stunning comeback to stun Chelsea 2-1; Liverpool win
Chelsea would rue their missed chances as they went down 1-2 to Wolves at the Molineux Stadium on Thursday.
It was their first victory since October 6 since their 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.
A shot from Ruben Loftus-Cheek was deflected into the Wolves’ net by home captain Conor Coady headed into his own net to hand Chelsea the lead in the 18th minute.
But two second-half goals in a space of four minutes helped Wolves clinch a stunning win over the Blues to hand Maurizio Sarri’s side their second loss in the Premier League this season.
Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga also had a terrible performance to show as it was his blunder in the 59th minute that made way for Raul Jimenez to level the scores.
Loftus-Cheek was included in the playing XI and it paid for the Sarri as the English midfielder came up with some clever movement in a beautiful combination of power and deft touches.
But their performance faded in the second half as Wolves clawed back into the contest. Jimenez scored the equaliser in the 59th minute and in very little time, Diogo Jota scored the winner from a cross by Doherty in the 63rd minute. Jota, unmarked tapped the ball into the net past Kepa to hand his team the lead, which eventually turned out to be the difference.
Liverpool staged a comeback at Turf Moor to beat Burnley 3-1 which saw them close the gap with leaders Manchester City to two points.
Burnley took the lead through Jack Cork after half-time but Liverpool came back with strikes from James Milner (62′), Roberto Firmino (69′) and Xherdan Shaqiri (90+1′) to clinch a 3-1 win.
