Daniel Podence had a first-half tap-in ruled out for offside and Leander Dendoncker spurned a glorious chance as Wolves missed opportunities to grab a winner and Chelsea settled for a fourth draw in eight league matches.
Chelsea traveled without at least eight senior players but still managed to field a strong XI. The Blues again struggled for fluency, however, eventually slipping six points behind leaders and defending champions Manchester City, which beat Newcastle 4-0.
Chelsea said it was left ‘deeply disappointed’ by the Premier League rejecting its request to postpone the Wolves trip, given their rising number of Covid-19 cases.
