Ruben Loftus-Cheek felt Chelsea were punished for a “sloppy” second half in a surprise 2-1 loss to Wolves in the Premier League on Wednesday.
Loftus-Cheek’s deflected opener had Maurizio Sarri’s side on track at Molineux, only for the hosts to strike twice shortly after the break.
Goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota saw Wolves end a six-match winless run as Chelsea slipped to fourth in the table, 10 points behind leaders Manchester City.
“We felt in control first half, felt comfortable and were playing some good football,” Loftus-Cheek said.
“But they came out fast second half and we were sloppy as a team. In the Premier League, if you’re sloppy you pay for it and that’s what happened.”
