Wolves then turned the game in four second half minutes.

Diogo Jota scored his first Premier League goal as Wolverhampton Wanderers came from behind to stun title hopefuls Chelsea 2-1 at Molineux on Wednesday.

Chelsea never recovered to mount the rally that one would have expected but did have a couple of chances to rescue a point, with Hazard drilling a 20-yard shot just past Patricio's post on 79 minutes.

Hazard volleyed well over from an awkward angle after being found by Cesc Fabregas' ball over the top and shot straight at Patricio after N'Golo Kante had collected Cesar Azpilicueta's pass and set up the Belgian.

Ryan Bennett and Willy Boly produced similarly heroic last-ditch challenges to deny Willian and Alvaro Morata either side of the break, and those interventions took on added importance as Wolves struck twice in quick succession around the hour through Jimenez and Jota.

Chelsea FC are looking to finish in the top four this season after the Blues ended up in fifth spot last term.

There was talk earlier in the season of the Belgium superstar netting 40 goals in 2018-19.

"In the Premier League, if you're sloppy you pay for it and that's what happened". - Chelsea have lost consecutive away games against newly promoted sides for the first time since December 1999 (vs Watford and Sunderland). Wolves supporters are hoping that the team that plays up to their competition shows up Wednesday against Chelsea.

Until defeat to Spurs, Chelsea were unbeaten in the league and have won nine of their 15 goals.

Another significant change will be in the midfield area where Ruben Loftus Cheek is expected to get a game after scoring one of the goals in Chelsea's 2-0 victory against Fulham on Sunday. 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.
