Pulisic made four successful dribbles and was fouled five times. Overall, dribbling was a strong aspect of the game for Wolves, with Podence successful with six and Nelson Semedo four. As a team they outweighed Chelsea by 15 to 10 for dribbling success, and that despite Adama Traore, whose involvement from the bench was limited, contributing just one.
