Wolves vs Chelsea LIVE: Latest Premier League updates

Wolves host Chelsea in the early Premier League kick-off today with Nuno Espirito Santo and Frank Lampard eager to inspire their teams to respond after defeats last time out to Aston Villa and Everton respectively.

There was then good fortune on Sunday though as both Tottenham, in their 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace, and Liverpool, who were held 1-1 by Fulham, failed to capitalise, meaning there is still just three points separating the Blues from top sport, so a victory will temporarily see them back in first place – follow all the live action, goal and score updates, reaction and analysis from the game below:

45 mins: Half time. Goalless at the break. Kurt Zouma’s header at the very end of the half was the closest we’ve come to a goal. Wolves want to make it hard for Chelsea to break them down and then attack on the counter but they’re lacking creativity in the final third.

39 mins: It’s been a very, stop-start half of football. Not much in the way of clear chances, Chelsea are seeing a lot of the ball and Wolves are content with shooting from range whenever they get close enough.
