Hilarious moment sees Chelsea and Wolves fans exchanging chants at each other mid-game

A rather hilarious moment sees Chelsea and Wolves fans exchanging chants at each other mid-game with the hosts losing once again.

Wolves pulled off a comeback against Chelsea, with Matheus Cunha scoring a hat-trick to secure a victory and leapfrog the Blues in the Premier League standings.

In the 19th minute, Mauricio Pochettino’s side went ahead through Cole Palmer’s composed finish, assisted by Moises Caicedo’s brilliant pass.

However, Wolves quickly equalized when Cunha’s shot deflected off Thiago Silva, catching Djordje Petrovic off guard.

Just before half time, Rayan Ait-Nouri capitalized on another deflection to put Wolves in the lead, courtesy of Pedro Neto’s assist.

Chelsea failed to mount a comeback in the second half, and Neto’s blistering pace allowed him to set up Cunha for his second goal, extending Wolves’ advantage.

Cunha completed his hat-trick from the penalty spot, after being fouled by Malo Gusto, leaving Petrovic helpless. Silva managed to score a consolation goal for Chelsea, but it was too late.

Wolves’ well-deserved victory propelled them to 10th place in the league, one point and one position above Chelsea after 23 matches.

Wolves fans chant “You’re fucking shit” and Chelsea fans agree.

Wolves manager Gary O’Neil speaking to BBC Sport: “Tough place to come, [Chelsea have] an extremely talented squad, [it was] just a real belief in our group.

“We tidied up bits that worked well against Manchester United and looked much better. It was a real good team performance and an enjoyable one for us, I can’t lie.

“It was just trying to be us today. There was nothing special about it, be aggressive, see if we can force mistakes, and with the ball I thought we were excellent.

“I didn’t really like us at 4-1, I saw a little lack of focus but harsh criticism of course. It’s not a trait I want to see, it’s a talented group so we should keep going. I really enjoyed it and the lads deserve massive credit.

“We have comeback from setbacks a lot. We suffered heartbreak three days ago after working our socks off to get back against Manchester United and they scored right at the death. But it was straight to business. We have done it a lot this season.

“Really pleased, 32 points is something the group should be proud of at this stage and lets see where we can go.”

On Matheus Cunha: “He’s a fantastic guy. Always had quality, we know he has that. He is so humble and hard-working, all I have worked on him with is hi understanding of situations. A Premier League hat-trick speaks volumes of the improvements he’s made.

“A big win of course, but back down to earth very quickly with Brentford next. We need to make sure the boys are ready to go again.”

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino speaking to BBC Sport: “When we scored the game was for us. Then when we concede we start to feel nervous and we didn’t manage well the stress.

“We conceded two own-goals, it was difficult to manage the team, the stress. We had chances for 2-2 but then we conceded the third. So disappointed, apologise to the fans and thanks to those who stayed and supported the team until the end. We are sorry and we are disappointed.

“Of course, I think we can change [the situation], we felt so disappointed after [the midweek 4-1 loss at] Liverpool and today it was 1-0 but [we made] too many mistakes which you can’t afford to in the Premier League.

“We started to play with a nervousness, made rash decisions, we need to reset and be ready for the FA Cup [fourth round replay] on Wednesday against Aston Villa. Of course the disappointment is massive.

“We cannot go down, it is a tough moment, but it is a moment to be together and find solutions and try to help the team with our decisions.

“It is normal that we are not matching the history of the club. It is a different project and it is a matter of time but it is difficult for me to always say [we need more] time, time, time.

“We need to show more and the circumstances are difficult. We were good until Liverpool but after Liverpool and Wolves it is like everything is going wrong. We have been on a good run and we need to move on.”

@iamBoaz_: That is a new low 😂😂

@DomFordSports: Wolves are making this Chelsea team look like a relegation side, at “the fortress” that once was….

@EricWynalda: They’re not wrong

@DanLal: This sums it up

@JeremyLevine92: Now this is funny

@simbawolf7: Enjoy these special players like Cunha & Neto while we can. Will really struggle to keep them next season imo. GON is giving them the freedom they require #wwfc

@ChelsH31: The switch at 14 seconds in is sublime

@wwfcjoe1408: Julen Lopetegui thought this group of players wasn’t good enough to stay in the league. I’m glad he didn’t as Gary O’Neil is bringing the joy back to us wolves fans after a crap couple of years #wwfc

@southbank82: Fantastic performance!! Congratulations Cunha with Hat tick and Wolves with unthinkable result away at the bridge ! Double completed over Chelsea.

@OliverSpooner93: Gary so thankful for the chance however it should be us thankful we have Gary This team was deemed not good enough by JLO days before the season confidence at rock bottom Gary walks in and completely transforms us, no complaining AND exciting football for a change! What a man

@Gman2307: What a response from Thursday!! Organised, passionate but disciplined. Cunha now owns a stand at Stamford Bridge now also. 😂 Onto next week in what seems our 15th game against Brentford this season. #cmonmebabbies

@wilko_wwfc: This team 😍 what a win. What a player @mathcunha20 is. A fantastic way to bounce back after the frustration of Thursday night 🙌🏻 #wwfc

@mark_spruce: What a team this is! Thank you so much Mr. Julen Lopetegui for writing this bunch off and running away. We are much better off with Gaz in charge, just shows how much can be achieved when the players have a a manager that believes in them…

@typewriter2911: Excellent game from Wolves. Would have liked to have seen Fraser instead of Bellegarde (again), he would have smashed that chance near the end 🤷‍♂️🐺🧡🖤

@adesheldon: From last minute heartbreak 3 days ago to put that performance in shows what type of players, manager, club we have 🐺🐺

@kevtheman10: What a massive 3 points away at Chelsea today. I’m delighted Cunha got a hat-trick and that’s twice they have won against them this season.😊 Well Done Wolves.👏🐺 #WWFC #CHEWOL

@paddyday90: So much has to be said for the way Cunha, Neto and Sarabia have stepped up in Hwang’s absence. The goals and assists racked up already by the above 4 is ridiculous. How we have gone from not being able to hit a barn door to the floodgates opening is mind boggling. #wwfc

@MrMattGriffin: Unbelievable result today and what’s even crazier is that @Wolves have scored 7 goals in 2 games. This time last season we’d be lucky to see 2 goals in 7 games 🫠. What a turnaround GON has done 🙌🏻 #wwfc #CHEWOL

@JakeLongworth: What a team this is by the way! 😍

@FarenheitDP9: Another great day for my wonderful club this season and the manager and players deserve all the plaudits for another awesome result 👏🏻😍 #wwfc 🐺🧡🖤

@RyHoops83: Fantastic performance. Been such a tough place for us over the years. Credit to GON who deserves the plaudits right now, a real team of togetherness and a pleasure to watch #wwfc
