Chelsea 2-4 Wolves: Mauricio Pochettino targeted by boos as Blues humbled at Stamford Bridge

Stamford Bridge turned on Mauricio Pochettino and his Chelsea side as they were deservedly humbled 4-2 by Wolves on another miserable afternoon for the Blues.

The hosts were booed off at the end of both halves while fans chanted the name of former owner Roman Abramovich as they shipped four goals for the second time in five days, though this display was even worse than their dismal defeat at Liverpool on Wednesday.

Chelsea briefly led through Cole Palmer’s smart finish from Moises Caicedo’s excellent threaded pass but things instantly fell apart once Matheus Cunha levelled up with a significantly deflected equaliser.

There was a stroke of fortune to that goal and the more costly Axel Disasi touch which would hand Wolves the lead, but the visitors made their luck by remaining compact and patient while their hosts grew increasingly frustrated.

There was a concerning lack of improvement from Chelsea after the break and they instead found themselves two goals behind from the best move of the game, when Pedro Neto sped past Thiago Silva and squared for Cunha to add a third.

Things went from bad to worse for the beleaguered Blues, who saw Raheem Sterling booed after he was substituted midway through the second half when Malo Gusto’s rash challenge on Cunha earned Wolves a stonewall penalty, which the Brazilian dispatched coolly to seal his hat-trick – and elicit another chorus of jeers from the home stands.
