Chelsea moved five points clear in the Premiership again ahead of todays game between Man City and Arsenal, and broke a record at the same time! They have played eight games in a row without conceding at Stamford Bridge and are looking good to win the title again.
Carlo Ancelotti admitted that it wasn’t a fantastic performance, but it was very fair considering they played in Moscow in midweek. Wolves definitely created lots of chances but Petr Cech was as solid as usual.
Ancelotti said after the game: “It was a tough game because we didn’t play so well. We suffered from some dangerous situations in the first half and in the second half we conceded too many shots from distance.”
“We could have closed the game before the second goal, we had a lot of chances, but we didn’t play as well as we usually do this season.
“This is a very good result from a difficult week because there was the game in Moscow and we were not 100 per cent. It is important to win when you are not 100 per cent.
Jose Bosingwa played his first start for a year, and along with Yuri Zhirkov was impressive going forward.
“Bosingwa was one the best players on the pitch,” Ancelotti added. “He put a lot of pressure on in the second half by pushing up without the ball and he had opportunities to score. For 70 minutes he played very well and he is an important player for us in the future.”
“He took the right time for recovery, he was comfortable to play and he was excited before the game and this is very good news for us,’
