Ben Chilwell believes that Chelsea’s poor finishing is what cost them during their Premier League clash with Wolves on Sunday.

Gary O’Neil’s men ran out 4-2 winners on the afternoon after carving Chelsea apart at will in the near-one-sided affair at Stamford Bridge.

Cole Palmer had opened the scoring for the home team after just 19 minutes of play, but an Axel Disasi own goal, and a hat-trick from Man of the Match, Matheus Cunha turned the tie upside down, as Wolves took a 4-1 lead before Thiago Silva scored late goal to reduce the deficit, and ensure it ended 4-2.

Speaking after the match, Chelsea vice-captain, Chilwell stated that his side were not good enough with their finishing, and that’s what might have cost them the three points.

He told the official Chelsea website: “We had chances in the game and it’s up to us to take them.

“If we take them, then of course that could have helped us get back into the game We need to be more clinical, like Wolves were at the other end and I think that’s probably what the difference was overall.”

Mauricio Pochettino was also critical of Chelsea’s lack of competitiveness in the game, and underlined the need for the team to do better.

“I think we are all not good enough,” said the Argentine.

“At the moment this is the reality. Myself, also. What we are showing today is we are not good enough. We didn’t manage the situation properly.

“No-one can be safe, no? I don’t want to come here and say I’m the best. At the moment, we are not matching the history of the club, that is true. We need to accept and be critical. We will not give up.

“I am a human. Of course it’s not nice situation. In football, you have to accept. With a club like Chelsea, with the expectation, you need to accept that. To be in this business, with this type of club, you need to be strong.”
