Thomas Tuchel failed to supply the new manager bounce Chelsea were after as his tenure at Stamford Bridge began with an underwhelming 0-0 draw with Wolves.
Twenty-four hours on from his confirmation as Frank Lampard’s successor, Tuchel orchestrated a possession-heavy performance on his first outing which crucially lacked a cutting edge.
Olivier Giroud squandered Chelsea’s best first-half opening, while Ben Chilwell, Mateo Kovacic, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Kai Havertz all passed up opportunities to earn their new manager three points in the second.
The point sees Chelsea climb to eighth in the table, but they remain 11 points off the summit after a run of just one win in their last six Premier League games.
Wolves, who could have snatched a first victory in seven late on when Pedro Neto clipped the crossbar, climb a place to 13th after an encouraging first Premier League clean sheet since October 30.
