Chelsea controlled the ball 63%, but rarely created good opportunities and only had one shot on goal.

Even Chelsea almost left Molineux stadium with a defeat.

For the second time in a row, Chelsea was held in the Premier League, after a 1-1 draw with Everton a few days ago.

Coach Tuchel is going through his darkest days at Chelsea.

Marching to Molineux, Chelsea was missing a series of pillars, when Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ben Chilwell – a player on long-term leave due to a knee injury – could not play due to Covid-19 infection.

Tuchel, therefore, was forced to put Pulisic highest in attack, with support from Mason Mount and Hakim Ziyech.

Chelsea’s patchwork squad could not make a difference, and was sometimes pressured by Wolves.

Chelsea continues to be out of rhythm in the Premier League

Reece James controlled the ball while being accompanied by a Wolves player.

In the second half, Tuchel put his two best cards on the bench – Saul Niguez and Mateo Kovacic – on the field, but Chelsea’s attack did not improve.

On December 22, Tuchel’s team will be a guest of Brentford in the quarterfinals of the League Cup, before meeting Aston Villa in round 19 of the Premier League four days later.
