A bitter 1-2 loss to Wolverhamton in the final minutes of injury time left Chelsea for the second time in a row in just four days and lost the opportunity to keep up with Tottenham’s top side.
After a 0-1 defeat last weekend, Chelsea managed to disappoint the lead, but let Wolverhampton come upstream and take a 1-2 loss to Molineux.
With the second consecutive Premier League season, “The Blues” lost a great chance to catch up briefly with Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool (25 points) before the two leading teams met at Anfield on the morning of 17 December.
Speaking in the Daily Mail after seeing Chelsea losing Wolves in Molineux, coach Frank Lampard (Chelsea) said:
“ Since they have several fast attacks, the Wolves’ challenge undoubtedly arises from counter attacks. That’s what my players knew before the match. If you allow a team to play its strengths, you could lose the game.”
Chelsea is reportedly placed 5th in the Premier League standings after round 13 with 22 points. London’s blue shirt team will totally lose this place to West Ham, Paddy or MU (with the same 20 points) if one of the three teams wins this round.
Everton is going to be a guest in Leicester City at 1:00 a.m. Tomorrow, the 17th of December. After two hours, West Ham is going to meet Crystal Palace. MU will march to the ground of Sheffield United’s bottom team to play at 3:00 a.m. on December 18 in the final match of round 13 of the Premier League. In the next round, Chelsea will head to Stamford Bridge’s home ground to welcome West Ham to the English capital’s derby at 3:00 a.m. to 10:12 p.m.
