Post match reactions
Mixed feelings, as expected, have trailed the final results of this premier league game. While Chelsea fans express disappointments, those of other football clubs have taken time to banter Lampard’s boys.
For instance, Jake Heasman @jakeheasman, a chelsea fan tweeted, “I’m stunned. Lampard just stood on the touchline next to Werner and watched him put in a disgraceful performance, and not once did it cross his mind to bring Pulisic (who was amazing in the first half) back to the left. One of the worst in game decisions I’ve ever seen”.

SDK@sdktalks: Mendy to Lampard: e be like say my clean sheet bundle don expire ooo
pauxy@pauxy38: Timo Werner still dey Leipzig.. You see the one wey Lampard buy, na Werner Bros #WOLCHE21
Histrion@TheOtherFakeIDTired players, clueless substitutions keeping the tired players on. Playing 3 players playing out of position in the first half, 4 in the second. All that added up and we lost. This is that time of the year, we need to rotate.
João Pires@JoaoPir55638479: Funny how everyone mocks Chelsea (it’s funny, indeed) but almost no one praises another demonstration of the fierceness, quality, resiliency of this great Wolves squad and their Portuguese youngsters – another comeback, two more super strikes, one must respect these guys!
Jacques Ambroise @PapaJacques1953Everybody knows Wolves are excellent and their fans are generally respectful of other clubs….whereas Chelsea fans. They have little respect and have such delusion of grandeur.
Gedoni @gedoni_I love seeing Chelsea supporters cry. It’s my daily medicine, my weekly energy, my monthly inspiration and my yearly motivation. Their loss is the only reason i’m still alive. I was born to love and enjoy the failure that they have achieved.
