Wolverhampton Wanderers kept their first clean sheet since October as they drew 0-0 in Thomas Tuchel's first game in charge as Chelsea.

In a game they spent large portions of the game defending, Wolves actually had the better of the chances, with Leander Dendoncker and Pedro Neto coming close for the Wanderers.


Rui Patricio- 7/10: Despite Chelsea dominating possession throughout, Patricio wasn't forced into much at Stamford Bridge. Commanding in the air and looked more confident with the three in front of him.

Max Kilman- 7/10: Certainly one of the better performances in Kilman's Wolves career. Was solid in his first Premier League game since the defeat at Manchester United in December and certainly warranted a starting place on Saturday.

Conor Coady- 6.5/10: Worried the backroom staff when he was forced to receive treatment for a possible concussion. However the skipper recovered and put his body on the line, literally for Hakim Ziyech's strike, to ensure of the clean sheet.

Willy Boly- 7/10: Wolves looking better at the back with Boly in the squad continues after another solid performance from the defender. Being in the back three did seem to help the defender, especially on the right-hand side.


Nelson Semedo- 6/10 Conducted his defensive work against Ben Chilwell in the first-half before being switched to the left when Ait-Nouri was replaced. Another solid performance in defence for the summer arrival.

Leander Dendoncker: 5/10: The Belgium could have scored in the first half and should have done more in the later stages when he was fed through. However, Dendoncker covered every blaze of grass at the Bridge in another impressive performance.

Ruben Neves- 6/10: Against an energetic midfield, Neves held up well against Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic. Split the play-up numerous of times, but will be disappointed not to do better from his free-kick.

Rayan Ait-Nouri- 5/10: Was forced to do a lot of defending against Callum Hudson-Odoi and failed to offer much assistance to the front three before being replaced by Hoever.


Adama Traore- 5/10: It was pretty difficult to notice Traore in the game due to how Nuno Espirito Santo set his side up against Thomas Tuchel's side. He did come alive more as the minutes ticked away, but he struggled to influence the outcome.

Daniel Podence- 5/10: Early days in his recovery but it was brilliant to see the tricky Portuguese winger back on the football pitch in a Wolves attack that has missed his flair going forward. He was relatively quiet due to Chelsea's dominance.

Pedro Neto- 6/10: Had the game's biggest chance when his looped effort bounced off the crossbar and over. Like the majority of the games that feature Wolves, Neto was the most influential player going forward for the visitors. Did receive a needless yellow card for a push on Jorginho.


Ki-Jana Hoever- 6/10: He seems to be getting better the more first team minutes he gets. When introduced, he went onto the right and conducted himself well. Big shout for him to start on Saturday and have Semedo on the left.

Willian Jose- 6/10: His debut will be remembered for his last gasp block on Kai Havertz. He held the ball up well and force Thiago Silva and Antonio Rudiger into some key physical battles.

Joao Moutinho- N.A.
