Roberto Mancini’s men put an end to a series of four games without a win and are elevated to fourth place, eight points behind leaders Manchester City, before moving to Arsenal in the evening in neighboring London Fulham late afternoon.
The four teams that were moving were all won. Swansea (2-0 against Aston Villa), Stoke (2-1 to Blackburn) and Norwich (2-1 against Queens Park Rangers) have imitated Chelsea.
The Blues opened the scoring in the 54th minute by Brazilian Ramires, before being joined by the Wolves in the 85th after a goal from Stephen Ward Irish milieu.
But Frank Lampard snatched victory for the London club a minute from the end of regulation time.
