Brilliant Ikeme Beaten Twice As Chelsea Edge Wolves In Emirate FA Cup


Wolverhampton Wanderers net minder Carl Ikeme was among the top performers for his side as they crash out of the Emirate Cup after losing 0-2 to Chelsea.

The English Premier League leaders found the Super Eagles first choice goalkepper a tough nut to crack in the first half, with the Nigerian acting as a sweeper keeper for his side when Chelsea try to play on the break.

His quickness of his line and decisiveness in dealing with crosses helped Wolves go into the half time break tied at 0-0 against a full strength Chelsea side.

However Ikeme was beaten in the second half when Spanish forward Pedro headed home a cross from Willian past the brilliant Ikeme in the 65th minute.

Wolves went forward in search of a leveller to force the tie into a replay but Chelsea were resolute in defence, with old war horse John Terry and Kourt Zouma equal to all what was thrown at them by the home side.
