Mauricio Pochettino has apologized to the Chelsea fans after Matheus Cunha’s hat-trick handed the Wolves their first victory at Stamford Bridge since 1979.

Chelsea were thrashed by Liverpool 4-1 on Wednesday, and their week to forget finished with an even more embarrassing loss as Wolves completed the double over the woeful West Londoners.

However, the Blues were booed off by furious fans after dropping into the bottom half of the table.

Cole Palmer put Chelsea ahead with a composed, angled finish from Moises Caicedo’s defensive-splitting pass in the 19th minute.

Furthermore, Pochettino wore an exasperated look in the 43rd minute when Rayan Ait Nouri’s shot deflected in for an own goal off Chelsea defender Axel Disasi.

But Chelsea’s lead lasted just three minutes, with Cunha’s shot taking a hefty deflection off Thiago Silva to leave Blues keeper Djordje Petrovic wrong-footed.

The already fraught atmosphere turned even more toxic in the 63rd minute as Pedro Neto teed up Cunha to drive in the Wolves’ third goal.

Cunha’s 82nd-minute penalty, awarded when he was fouled by Malo Gusto, capped a miserable afternoon for Pochettino, who took no consolation from Silva’s close-range finish in the 86th minute.

In conclusion, with trips to Aston Villa in the FA Cup and Manchester City among their next three games, Chelsea could be in complete disarray by the time they face Liverpool in the League Cup final at Wembley on February 25.
