Chelsea suffered their second straight away defeat in the Premier League season as Wolves completed a massive comeback at Molineux against the Blues.

Goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota sealed a 2-1 victory after Ruben Loftus Cheek had put Chelsea in front with a shot deflected into the bottom corner. Maurizio Sarri‘s men went close to double their lead before conceding two goals in 5 minutes.

Both Olivier Giroud and Pedro came off the bench to respond but Wolves cruised quite comfortably to a 2-1 win, which means Chelsea are now level on points with Arsenal in 4th place. Premier League leaders Man City (Chelsea’s next opponents) remain 10 points above the Blues, with Liverpool and Tottenham respectively in 2nd and 3rd position.

West Ham United are lining up a January loan move to land  Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek to the Olympic Stadium, according to reports in the Daily Express.

It has been reported that both sides have already entered talks to discuss a potential move when the transfer market window reopens.

It is understood Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is a great admirer of the 20-year-old, who played just a few games in the EFL Cup so far.
