February 5, 2024 | by

Wolverhampton caught Chelsea by exploding his scoring ability despite Hwang Hee-chan’s absence.

Wolverhampton won 4-2 in the 23rd round of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in London, England on the 5th (Korea time).

Wolverhampton elevated its league ranking to 10th with the victory. On the other hand, Chelsea failed to advance to 11th place again due to the defeat.

Chelsea, the home team, played 4-2-3-1. Christopher Nkunku was in the front line, and Cole Palmer, Conor Gallagher and Raheem Sterling played in the second line. Moises Caicedo and Enso Fernandez worked together in the third line. The defense was made up of Malo Gusto, Axel Disasi, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The goal was saved by Jorge Petrovic.

Wolverhampton, the visiting team, faced 3-4-3. Matheus Cunha, Pedro Netu, and Pablo Sarabia were on the front three-top. Jung Won-woon João Gomes and Mario Lemina were located. Rayan Ait Nouri and Nelsong Semedu were among the wingbacks. Totti Soames, Craig Dawson, and Maximilian Kilman were on the three-back. The goalkeeper’s gloves were worn by Jose.

Wolverhampton is in a situation where Hwang Hee-chan, a key player, is currently out of the team to participate in the Qatar Asian Cup. Netu returned to the offense, but he was feeling Hwang Hee-chan’s absence as he recorded one draw and one loss in two league games after Hwang Hee-chan’s call-up.

The two teams exchanged attacks from the start of the game and aimed for the opponent’s goal at a fast tempo. In particular, Netu’s quick breakthrough threatened Chelsea’s defense in Wolverhampton, and in Chelsea, Nkunku and Palmer’s movement in the box stood out.

Chelsea led the way with the first goal. At the 20th minute of the first half, Kaise also saw Palmer move penetrating through defense, and delivered the ball through a sharp penetration pass. As soon as Palmer caught the ball in the box, he shook the net of Wolverhampton with a right footed shot.

Wolverhampton fired back just two minutes into the match. In the 22nd minute of the first half, Cunha’s shot from Gomes deflected off DiSashi’s leg and Petrovich scored the equalizer to balance the game.

Wolverhampton continued to shake Chelsea with a counterattack. In the 30th minute of the first half, Gusto committed a foul while blocking Cunha from breaking through after the counterattack and got a free kick opportunity in a good position. Sarabia’s cross as a kicker hit Cunha’s head, but it swung slightly higher and the top net was swung.

Chelsea also sought an opportunity to attack. Enso’s mid-range shot floated a little high in the 35th minute of the first half and headed over the net. 월카지노주소

Wolverhampton turned the game around by scoring an additional goal before the end of the first half. Netu, who received Semedo’s pass in the 43rd minute of the first half, scored a low and fast cross, and Ait Noori, who was penetrating, hit Dish’s body and shook Chelsea’s net as it was. It was a scene that revealed Chelsea’s unfortunate concentration of the defense, which failed to properly prevent Wolverhampton’s counterattack. The first half ended with Wolverhampton’s 2-1 lead.

At the beginning of the second half, the two teams were searching for a chance in the midfield. Chelsea took the lead first, but failed to show a sharp finish in the box. Palmer entered the box in the sixth minute of the second half and almost grabbed the ball and tried to shoot, but was blocked by Gomes’ quick cover.

Wolverhampton threatened Chelsea with a counterattack that saved speed. At 10 minutes into the second half, Caicedo’s tackle to break through Cunha’s dribble breakthrough attempt to the front of the penalty box was declared a foul, which gave him a good chance to kick free. Sarabia’s kick as a kicker hit the side net. Just one minute later, Wolverhampton got a free kick again due to Caicedo’s foul at a similar position. Netu’s shot as a kicker was blocked off the defense wall.

Chelsea also fought hard to make up for it. In the 16th minute of the second half, Enso’s pass went to Palmer, and Palmer’s shot was caught once by Gomes. Palmer grabbed the ball again and tried to cross from deep in the box, but Saga easily caught it.

Wolverhampton added his third goal and broke down Chelsea’s defense once again. Netu grabbed the ball and attempted a cutback pass deep on the right side of the Chelsea penalty box in the 18th minute of the second half when Wolverhampton counterattacked. Cunha, who was coming in from the inside, finished it with a powerful shot and penetrated Chelsea’s goal.

Wolverhampton continued to break off Chelsea’s attacks and then shook his opponent with his attempted counterattack. Chelsea constantly occupied the ball in front of Wolverhampton’s door to create chances.

Wolverhampton created a scoring opportunity thanks to Cunha’s strong performance. Gusto, who was blocking Cunha’s breakthrough in the 35th minute of the second half, tackled Cunha’s leg when the ball was already missing, and the referee immediately declared a penalty kick. Cunha, who played as a kicker, successfully completed a hat trick.

Chelsea scored a comeback goal at the end of the second half. Silva sent the ball to the far corner with his head when he crossed from a corner kick at 41 minutes into the second half, and shook Wolverhampton’s net as it was.

Wolverhampton was over the edge of allowing more chasing goals. One minute after extra time in the second half, Kilman fell in the box and blocked Caicedo’s shot with his foot to block the ball heading into the empty net.

Chelsea continued to try to pierce their opponents throughout extra time in the second half, but rarely broke down Wolverhampton’s defence.

The two teams failed to add a goal in the second half’s extra time, and the game ended with Wolverhampton’s 4-2 victory.
