Both Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers, both coming off disheartening midweek losses, aim to rectify their recent setbacks in a mid-table clash at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Chelsea suffered a 4-1 defeat to Liverpool in their last outing, while Wolverhampton Wanderers, led by Gary O’Neil, succumbed to a 4-3 loss to Manchester United with some extraordinary late-game drama.
In the recent Premier League encounter at Anfield, Chelsea fans, on their way to Liverpool, unknowingly found themselves witness to the Conor Bradley show. The 20-year-old right-back played a pivotal role in dismantling Chelsea with an impressive performance. Liverpool dominated the first half, going 2-0 up with Diogo Jota’s forceful run and Bradley’s precise shot across the goal. Bradley then provided his second assist for Dominik Szoboszlai in the second half, and Luis Diaz added to Chelsea’s troubles.
Christopher Nkunku did manage to score a consolation goal for Chelsea, who arguably felt they should have been awarded two penalties during the game. Despite their struggles, Chelsea was spared from a more embarrassing scoreline by Darwin Nunez’s record-breaking lack of accuracy, hitting the woodwork four times.
