Michael Owen states his prediction for Wolves v Chelsea FC

Maurizio Sarri questioned the mentality of his Chelsea team after they surrendered a lead to lose 2-1 against Wolves at Molineux, suggesting that some of his players may have "too much confidence".

Maurizio Sarri, however, made it clear that there was no chance of Loftus-Cheek leaving the Londoners. "He has played in the Europa League and League Cup, some in the Premier League but not starting".

There are ten points now between his Chelsea team and the Premier League leaders Manchester City and if Maurizio Sarri had his doubts about the task facing him then this second defeat of the season will have opened his eyes about more than one of his big name players.

"I am really very anxious, not for the result but the fact that after the first goal we conceded we did not react very well".

"I think we played very well for 55 minutes", Sarri said. Maybe it was for the result, but not for me. "When I am on the pitch I can't have any negative thoughts when I am in and around the team because it will affect the team". First team starts this season have largely been in the Europa League and have been hard to come by in the league.

The country has already been warned by United States senators against the use of Huawei in its telecommunications networks. Justice Department spokesman Ian McLeod said Meng Wanzhou was detained in Vancouver, British Columbia, on Saturday.

The score might've only been 1-0 - thanks to a deflected effort from Ruben Loftus-Cheek - but Chelsea were looking pretty comfortable at the break.

And Wolves should join the growing list of interested parties as Nuno Espirito Santo considers his midfield options.

"We felt in control first half, felt comfortable and were playing some good football", he said.

Four minutes later the home side were ahead when Matt Doherty provided a low cross that was tapped in at the back post by Jota.

It lifted Wolves up to 12th and was their first win for two months after five defeats in their previous six games, but Nuno insists his side still have a long way to go.
