Chelsea Confirmed Lineup vs Wolves: Morata, Loftus-Cheek start; Jorginho benched

The Blues rebounded after suffering their first Premier League defeat of the year against Tottenham by defeating Fulham, 2-0, behind goals from Pedro and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

"Wolves have lost their last three home league games and things are likely to get worse before they get better at Molineux when Chelsea are the visitors on Wednesday night", Owen told BetVictor.

It was a night to forget for Blues goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, who committed a howler to concede Wolves' equaliser. Even though, in the first half we were behind the result, the way we stayed organised and compact.

Loftus-Cheek is keen to ensure his personal development is not left behind as a result of a lack of playing time, with his spot in Gareth Southgate's England squad on the line. I thought it was a good performance, honestly.

Chelsea, who took the lead through Ruben Loftus-Cheek, seemed to take their foot off the gas and were punished as Nuno's charges halted a six-game winless run.

Maybe these Chelsea fans will crack a smile with these jokes.

Jorginho and N'Golo Kante will retain their positions in midfield meaning the Cesc Fabregas will once again start the match as a substitute.

Chelsea fought to find a way back, Hazard and Fabregas firing over in the closing stages, but Nuno Espirito Santo's men held on to claim a famous win and snap a worrying sequence that delivered just one point from six matches.

Sarri's regular goalscoring worries were also laid bare once more as Alvaro Morata laboured unsuccessfully for 65 minutes before being withdrawn.

We've seen our first #SarriOut of the season.

"The idea of football of Chelsea is about taking the ball".

Loftus-Cheek struck in the 18th minute when his effort hit Conor Coady and flew in.

The Italian admitted he was "really worried" by what he had seen thereafter as Wolves turned the game on its head through Diogo Jota's victor.
