Man of the match: Romelu Lukaku.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel: “Of course [it feels like a defeat]. We started both halves very well and controlled the match with a very offensive approach to this game today with a 5-3-2 formation. We knew about the risk to avoid counter-attacks and we needed to show discipline. We did for most parts of the first half but in some situations, we took too much risk and lost discipline in the formation. That cost us some dangerous moments at the end of the first half when we were lucky not to concede. I reminded the team to execute the match plan with more precision and we did this to go 2-0 up but then we took more risks. We invited the counter-attacks and big chances. When you do this, you lose confidence and you invite the opponents to smell that something is possible when it is absolutely unnecessary.”
Wolves coach Tony Roberts: “If we’re getting penalties for that these days, I couldn’t believe it. I didn’t think it was a pen but that’s my opinion. He’s a big one [Lukaku].”
