Chelsea stunned as Wolves show their class against the league's elite

Newcastle interested in loan deal for Loftus-Cheek

"This is a performance of big soul and heart", Mourinho said. "When you score a goal and lose it's not the same feeling".

He could not have expected keeper David De Gea to suffer the sort of panic that keeps undermining his side. And will Wolves bounce back from a fifth defeat in six?

Jesse Lingard equalised moments after Alexandre Lacazette had restored Arsenal's lead in the second half. "They can win the Champions League".

"I think we controlled the game, the second half better than the first", Emery said.

Burnley threw players forward in the dying minutes to try to secure a draw, but Liverpool broke up the field and Salah teed up Xherdan Shaqiri to seal the points.

United boss Jose Mourinho has made 46 changes to his starting lineup already this season and all eyes will be on his selection again as he comes face to face with the original "tinkerman" Claudio Ranieri, now at the helm at Fulham.

It lifted Wolves up to 12th and was their first win for two months after five defeats in their previous six games.

The young midfielder could develop his game with a ball-playing team like Wolves and he would bolster Nuno's squad in the short-term.

And we feel Sarri will prefer Barkley over Loftus Cheek in midfield - only if the former is a 100 per cent fit. And what will Ralph Hasenhüttl, watching at Wembley, make of the Saints side he has inherited?

The Blues had taken an early lead through a deflected Ruben Loftus-Cheek effort but Wolves produced a spirited second half display and turned the game around with goals from Jimenez and Diogo Jota.

Chelsea's chief said: "After this match, we have lost confidence but maybe it's better because sometimes my players show me that they have too much confidence".

Southampton, Burnley and Fulham occupy the three relegation spots with nine points each.
