Wolves handed Chelsea a bitter 4-2 defeat when they visited Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The loss was the Blues’ second in as many outings, having been defeated 4-1 by Liverpool just last Wednesday.

Chelsea were expected to try and get a win against Gary O’Neil’s side, especially since they were playing at Stamford Bridge, which was starting to be a fortress for the team again, but in the end, they could do nothing as Wolves ran riot at their own backyard.

Speaking after the game, Wolves boss, O’Neil said: “Tough place to come, [Chelsea have] an extremely talented squad, [it was] just a real belief in our group.

“We tidied up bits that worked well against Manchester United and looked much better. It was a real good team performance and an enjoyable one for us, I can’t lie.

“It was just trying to be us today. There was nothing special about it, be aggressive, see if we can force mistakes, and with the ball I thought we were excellent.

“I didn’t really like us at 4-1, I saw a little lack of focus but harsh criticism of course. It’s not a trait I want to see, it’s a talented group so we should keep going. I really enjoyed it and the lads deserve massive credit.

“We have comeback from setbacks a lot. We suffered heartbreak three days ago after working our socks off to get back against Manchester United and they scored right at the death. But it was straight to business. We have done it a lot this season.

“Really pleased, 32 points is something the group should be proud of at this stage and lets see where we can go.”
