Struggling under Mauricio Pochettino's management, Chelsea faced another setback with a dismal 4-2 defeat against Wolves. Following their 4-1 loss to Liverpool, Chelsea's woes continued as Matheus Cunha's hat-trick secured Wolves' second victory over the troubled west Londoners.
The match began on a positive note for Chelsea as Cole Palmer scored in the 19th minute, putting them ahead. However, their lead was short-lived, lasting only three minutes, as Cunha's shot deflected off Thiago Silva, leaving Blues' goalkeeper Djordje Petrovic wrong-footed. The situation worsened for Chelsea with an own goal from Axel Disasi in the 43rd minute, adding to their misery.
In the 63rd minute, Pedro Neto set up Cunha for Wolves' third goal, intensifying the already toxic atmosphere. Cunha's 82nd-minute penalty, earned by a foul from Malo Gusto, sealed Chelsea's fate. Despite Silva's late goal in the 86th minute, the dispiriting season for Pochettino raises concerns, with calls for his dismissal looming unless there's a swift turnaround in results. Chelsea faces challenging fixtures ahead, potentially worsening their situation before the League Cup final against Liverpool on February 25.
