Ex-Super Eagles midfielder, Victor Moses, was ignored despite recovering from an injury on Wednesday when Chelsea visited Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Without the Nigerian, though, the Blues suffered a shocking 2-1 at Molineux –
Wolves ended a run of six straight Premier League defeats by coming from a goal down to beat the Blues.
The hosts found themselves behind in unfortunate circumstances when Conor Coady inadvertently diverted Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s shot past Rui Patricio in the 18th minute.
However, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side roared back after the break as Raul Jimenez (59) brought them level before Diogo Jota’s first Premier League goal soon after (63) secured Wolves a much needed three points.
The victory moves Wolves up to 12th in the Premier League table while Chelsea drop down to fourth following Tottenham’s 3-1 win over Southampton at Wembley.
