Chelsea were seconds away from another damaging defeat after Raul Jimenez put Wolves ahead at Stamford Bridge.
Eden Hazard spared the under fire Sarri’s blushes with his thunderous stoppage-time equaliser, but it was still a frustrating day for the Blues boss.
Maurizio Sarri’s side had won three times in 10 days to temporarily silence reports that the Italian was facing the sack.
However, Chelsea’s latest misfiring effort raised the possibility that Sarri is back on borrowed time in west London.
With Man United in fifth place after losing 2-0 to Arsenal, who climbed to fourth, Chelsea, languishing in sixth, are further adrift of the top four after another tense afternoon for Sarri.
Yet Maurizio Sarri is adamant qualification for next season’s Champions League remains entirely possible.
“When you have to play only 10 matches, every match you ’re not able to win is a missed opportunity,” Sarri said.
“But in the last six matches, we won four matches and drew the other two. So, there is a little consistency in this moment.
“We have one match in hand, so we have to be confident. ”
Although Eden Hazard had salvaged a point for Sarri, his manager still wasn’t satisfied with his performance.
“Hazard is a great player who can solve the situation in any moment, but during the match, he was like the other players,” he said.
