Coup dur pour Chelsea : Les Blues concèdent le nul à la dernière minute contre Wolverhampton

The takeover operation will therefore only concern the Chelsea club, not his team. On the day of the announcement of the arrival of a new owner in the London club, the Blues conceded an almost inexplicable draw against Wolverhampton on Saturday afternoon, during the 36th day (2-2). In front of two goals after a double from Romelu Lukaku – an event – ​​the formation of Thomas Tuchel, too easy at the end of the match, collapsed in 20 short minutes, thus completing a third meeting in a row without success. The London club will have to fight again to secure its place in the top 4. The Wolves, they are relaunching in the race for Europe.

History has long been perfect. While the new owner of Chelsea was in the stands, Romelu Lukaku also launched his own takeover operation at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Unable to score in the league since December 29, the Belgian striker offered himself a double – his second of the season – to increase his total in the Premier League to seven. obtained in front of Romain Saïss (1-0, 56th), an instant shot from the right almost in stride (2-0, 58th), and that was it. At least, that’s what Chelsea believed, against a side that had lost their previous three matches without scoring a single goal.

The solution came from the bench for Wolves

But if the face of the Blues changes behind the scenes, it remains essentially the same on the ground. Much less convincing in recent weeks, the Londoners have confirmed their current feverishness and above all, their ability to offer opportunities to their opponent. This time, no glaring error like against Everton or Arsenal. But a terrible laxity in attitudes. The visitors had already had balls to hit against in the first period (45th, 45th + 3). In the last half hour, they simply took advantage of the passivity of their opponents.

Hwang Hee-chan warned, stumbling over Edouard Mendy in the area (75th). Francisco Trincao punished, in the wake of his entry into play, he who had plenty of time to return to his left foot after a counter, to roll up a shot in the opposite corner (2-1, 79th). The situations then followed one another (81st, 84th), before the highlight of Wolves ended up fading. But when Kai Havertz had to keep the ball on what seemed like a final corner, the German lost the ball. And at the end of the end, Conor Coady headed a cross from Chiquinho, who also entered this match very well (2-2, 97th).

A cold shower, not a heist, one week before the FA Cup final against Liverpool. Chelsea will still need five points to secure their place in the top four, as Arsenal and Tottenham push behind. Wolverhampton returns to 7th place, qualifying for the Europe Conference League.
