Mathues Nunes stunner seals Wolves’ 1-0 victory over Chelsea

In what was a highly anticipated game, Wolverhampton Wanderers hosted Chelsea at Molineux Stadium for a Premier League match. The game marked the return of former Chelsea legend, Frank Lampard, as the manager of the London club. However, Lampard’s return was not a happy one as Wolves secured a 1-0 victory thanks to a stunning goal by Mathues Nunes.

It was a well-deserved victory for Wolves, who showed great determination and resilience throughout the game. Mathues Nunes’ stunning goal will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the Premier League season, while Chelsea will need to regroup and bounce back in their next game against Real Madrid.

Starting XI

Mason Mount is not involved against Wolves this afternoon in Frank Lampard’s first match as interim Chelsea manager, due to an injury. Mount was one of Lampard’s most reliable players during the former Chelsea great’s two-year stint as manager between 2019 and 2021.

But he has not featured for Chelsea since February due to an abdomen injury. He had been named on the bench in the Blues’ last two matches, but reports say he pulled up in training after aggravating the same injury — forcing Lampard to leave him out of today’s matchday squad.

It makes the England international, who played at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, a doubt to face Real Madrid in Chelsea’s Champions League quarter-final first leg against reigning champions Real Madrid at the Bernabeu on Tuesday.

Mount had been expected to play a more significant role for Lampard during the season run-in than he did under the Blues’ recently sacked manager Graham Potter.
