Report and free match highlights as Wolves fight back from two goals down to secure dramatic point at Stamford Bridge; Conor Coady scores 97th-minute equaliser after Trincao had reduced deficit; two Romelu Lukaku goals in 138 seconds had given Chelsea control

Wolves came from two goals down to snatch a dramatic point at Chelsea as Conor Coady’s 97th-minute header secured a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge in front of prospective new owner Todd Boehly.

Romelu Lukaku scored two goals in three minutes (pen 56, 58) as Chelsea looked to have marked their new era with a morale-boosting win, but the contest unravelled for the hosts after inspired substitutions from Wolves goalkeeper coach Tony Roberts, standing in for the absent head coach Bruno Lage.

Boehly watched on with delight at that point, an hour into this lively encounter, but Wolves showed their battling qualities as Trincao reduced the deficit with a well-taken finish (79) before captain Coady met Chiquinho’s cross with virtually the last kick of the game to ensure the points were shared.

The result means that Chelsea remain third on 67 points, four points ahead of Arsenal who have a game in hand, and six points ahead of Tottenham in fifth. Wolves ended a run of three straight defeats by consolidating their position in eighth, two points off West Ham and a Europa Conference League berth.
