Charged down Mata early on and made things difficult as he tried to chip the keeper. Could do nothing about either goal Chelsea.
Lost Torres to begin with as the Spaniard started brightly but he soon regrouped and proved to be an excellent foil for Johnson at the back.
Failed to close down the crosses from his side but he didn’t allow himself to get beaten until the very end when he lost Cole who set up Lampard for the winner.
Once again back in defence, he did not get tight enough to Ramires as the Brazilian, playing on the wing, was given plenty of space early on, but like Berra his performance improved. Should have given his side the lead after planting a free header wide but he did eventually score from an excellent finish although he allowed Ramires to escape when the Brazilian gave his side the lead.
A great tackle on Lampard to stop the midfielder from scoring was the start of an excellent performance with some crunching tackles on all who got close to him. At the other end he headed against the outside of the post from a difficult angle.
Partnered by Frimpong for the first time, Henry looked off the pace and was sitting too deep to get hold of the Chelsea players finding space between defence and midfield but in the second-half he was a commanding presence.
Deployed behind Doyle he was one of the few Wolves players to start well, harrowing the Chelsea players and forcing mistakes but he couldn’t keep that performance going with the visitors able to keep the ball away from him.
Will wonder why he was booked for fouling Cole and why Lampard did not see red for fouling him. Deployed on the right he struggled to get in the game and gave the ball away a few too many times with nobody to aim for up top.
Making his debut the midfielder would have wanted to put one over the side battling Arsenal for a Champions League berth. A nervous start began with some wayward passes but he began to keep the ball better and even get in some of his famous tackles as the game heated up.
The youngster was given another chance by McCarthy but in a frantic first-half he never got much time on the ball and he failed to assert himself into the game. Replaced by Jarvis at half-time.
Left up front on his own he never really stood much of a chance to get into the game, but he was unlucky to be denied by an excellent save from Cech with the last touch of the match.
For all of Wolves’ shots on goals they never managed to trouble the Chelsea keeper until the last touch of the game when he tipped over Doyle's header. Could do nothing about Ward's equaliser.
Escaped a yellow for kicking Doyle in another show of petulance from the full-back. However, he was a bright spark for his team and his energy saw him get down the left to set up Lampard for the winner with an excellent cross.
Roundly booed as expected, the England captain remained composed and marshalled the defence well as Wolves looked to attack the visitors.
Started again with nobody else to replace him. Wasn’t tested enough by the Wolves front-line and was able to give a credible performance alongside Terry.
Conceded the ball in a nervy start on his recall and he lost Johnson who headed against the post from a set-piece before allowing Fletcher to knock Jarvis' cross to Ward who equalised. Looked more comfortable going forward but his crosses failed to test the Wolves back-line and his shot from distance was dealt with by Hennessey.
Some impressive passing from deep in an accomplished display as he outshone the rest of his central midfield partners with a good performance in the holding role.
It’s hard to remember Meireles impacting on this match one way or the other as the game somewhat passed him by. A disappointing display with the Portuguese too often on defensive duty.
Began lively with a shot hit that the side-netting but didn’t manage to impact the game much on the right. In the second-half he perked up a bit and kept his nerve to score after a corner from the left found him in the area.
Had an early chance to give his side the lead but his dink over Hennessey just went wide. Allowed to drift around he shone in the second-half with some lovely passes but he could not find as range with his shooting which was the only part of his game which let him down.
A memorable day for Lampard as he avoided a deserved red card for a studs up challenge on Hammill before popping up in the 89th minute to volley home the winner after a second-half where he had sat deep and not been really been involved.
With a month of starts to look forward to this was an improved display from the Spaniard. Began with nice through-balls to Mata and Lampard which almost saw both score and a jinking run in the second-half almost saw him set up a one-on-one. His pass to Cole set up Lampard's winner to cap off his performance.
- 31 D. de Vries
A late change with little time left to make an impact.
- 3 G. Elokobi
Brought on at half-time he made an instant difference and his cross to Fletcher saw Ward score.
- 12 S. Hunt
- 9 S. Ebanks-Blake
Massively cheered when he came on, his presence against the timid Bosingwa set up Ward to equalise.
