Chelsea trail league leaders Manchester City by 10 points and will host Pep Guardiola’s side on Saturday, while Wolves climb to 12th and will be relieved to have brought their horror run of form to an end.
The visitors had a strong call for a penalty turned down minutes after halftime when Alvaro Morata was clattered from behind as he seemed destined to score but it was the home side who found the back of the net on the hour-mark.
The impressive Morgan Gibbs-White fed Jimenez, who had a lot to do from a tight angle but drilled the ball past Chelsea keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Four minutes later the home side were ahead when Matt Doherty provided a low cross that was tapped in at the back post by Jota. (Reporting By Nick Said Editing by Toby Davis)
