Chelsea reserves 2 Wolves Reserves 3


Recommended Posts

Chelsea's reserves fell to a second straight defeat at home against Wolves on Monday afternoon.

The Blues, featuring Romelu Lukaku in attack, fell behind early on despite dominating possession against their more experienced opponents, and the gap was soon doubled as Wolves demonstrated greater efficiency in the final third.

Milan Lalkovic, back from a loan at Doncaster pulled a goal back for Chelsea late in the first half but they switched off at the back again to concede a third before the break, and although Lukaku drove a low shot into the net in the second half, it was Wolves who finished the stronger and were deserving of the three points.

Chelsea (4-3-3): Rhys Taylor; Todd Kane, Sam Hutchinson © (sub Ben Gordon 77), Nathaniel Chalobah (sub George Saville h-t), Ryan Bertrand; Billy Clifford, Connor Clifford, Josh McEachran; Milan Lalkovic, Romelu Lukaku, Aliu Djalo (sub Marko Mitrovic 82).

Unused subs Jamal Blackman, Aziz Deen-Conteh

How did josh play?

Pretty poorly by his standards. As did most of the team. This is just about as strong a team as we could put out and they just didn't get going, poor passing and lapse defending. The main problem is how many games these players are getting, the Reserve system in England is s**t. Josh playing as the number 10 spend more time in the "6" position than the 10 which left us light upfront with Lukaku without support. No one had a real good game and it is a shame to see a talented bunch of players struggle to get their game going in that was.
