The Premier League leaders toiled for long periods in their fifth round encounter at Molineux, with the hosts buoyed by previous successes against Stoke City and Liverpool. Paul Lambert’s men came closest to opening the scoring in a tight first half, with former Chelsea man George Saville striking the post inside four minutes.
Wolves could not find a breakthrough, though, and Antonio Conte’s took the lead in the 65th minute as Pedro rose to nod home a Willian delivery.
Diego Costa then made the scoreline a little more comfortable in the 89th minute with a clinical finish.
