"After this match we are less confident but maybe it's better because sometimes my players show me they have too much confidence", Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri said.

Wolverhampton Wanderers end their six-match winless run in the Premier League with a 2-1 comeback victory over Chelsea at Molineux.

Angry Maurizio Sarri rounded on his over-confident Chelsea stars after their title hopes suffered another major blow with a 2-1 defeat at Wolves. - Chelsea's Ruben Loftus-Cheek has scored three goals in his last three Premier League games, as many as in his previous 48 combined in the competition.

The Blues are now seven points behind league leaders Manchester City and Maurizio Sarri will be hoping to pick up an easy victory against an underperforming Wolves side. I am really very anxious for this, not for the result.

"We played very well for 55 minutes and then suddenly we were another team". I have got to do my best and try and make stuff happen, but also do what the manager asks me to do defensively", the young midfielder told the reports on Sunday."I am here right now, I am at Chelsea and I want to focus on helping the team.

"I saw a team without a reaction".

Loftus-Cheek struck in the 18th minute when his effort hit Conor Coady and flew in. Alvaro Morata once again looked ill-suited to the intensity of a night like this.

Chelsea enjoyed 70 percent possession in the match, firing 17 shots at Wolves' goal, and after the game Sarri was at a loss to explain why his team had lost control of proceedings so quickly.

Jota's first Premier League goal followed in quick time as Joao Moutinho knocked Willian off the ball in the Chelsea half and spread the play to Matt Doherty, who delivered a perfectly-weighted cross to the back post for the Portuguese winger to slot home from six yards out.

Wolves have had their season go off the rails lately.
