Sunday’s Premier League clash between Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers at Stamford Bridge was hardly a classic, but it was certainly a nail biter.
After a goalless first half that the hosts utterly dominated, Raul Jimenez got our first (and last) effort on target in the match to give us a 1-0 lead. Despite their possession and numerous chances, Chelsea needed a moment of magic from Eden Hazard in stoppage-time to save their blushes and take a point from the game.
Hugely disappointing to not have ultimately kept the clean sheet, but the disappointment is a positive given how well we stood up to them and coped.
Statistics website Whoscored were very positive in their player ratings given how little we had the ball and they recognised the organised showing throughout the pitch.
Jimenez took Man of the Match with 7.76 and he was closely followed by Leander Dendoncker (7.50), Diogo Jota (7.48), Willy Boly (7.37) and Romain Saiss (7.22) to complete our top five best performers, but extra mentions for Rui Patricio and Ruben Neves who also scored seven-plus.
On to the next one now as we can certainly take the confidence from that one.
