Premier League: Wolves Stun Chelsea, Ajayi Rescues West Brom Defeat Against Man City

Wolves fought back from a goal down to earn a 2-1 win over Chelsea at the Molineux Stadium.

The first half was largely uneventful as both sides failed to cancel out each other.

Olivier Giroud continued his recent impressive form with a volley from a right angle which Patricio could not stop from crossing the line to give Chelsea the lead just after the interval.

Daniel Podence restored parity for Wolves with a superb finish, before Wolves were awarded a penalty after Neto was fouled by Reece James, but the decision was overruled by VAR.

Chelsea went all out in search of the winning goal but their efforts were in vain as Neto took advantage of a counter-attacking move to beat Mendy after Zouma failed to close him down with two minutes to go to hand the hosts the maximum points.

Chelsea coach Frank Lampard could not hide his frustration after the Blues lost their second consecutive game.

“At 1-0 we should see the game out,” said Lampard who suggested his team may have become complacent after their 17-match unbeaten run before defeat at Everton last week.

“If you are not playing that well, which we weren’t at that time, hang on to 1-0, don’t allow counter-attacks,” he said.

“Performance is what gives you results. We were playing very well, a long unbeaten run and then maybe the lads think we are playing well and the minute you think you are playing well things like this can happen,” he added.

Super Eagles defender, Semi Ajayi Rescued West Brom defeat against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Gundogan opened the scoring for the hosts on the half-hour mark before Ajayi’s long-range effort deflected off Ruben Dias to beat Ederson.

Manchester City were wasteful in front of goal yet again as they drop two vital points.
