Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Chelsea Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Wolves’ form slipped further after a 2-1 defeat against Cardiff City. Nuno saw his team get the lead through a Matt Doherty finish in the 18th minute. Wolves, though, slowly allowed Cardiff to get back into the match and Aron Gunnarsson was able to grab the equaliser in the 65th minute. Junior Hoilett’s wonder strike from the edge of the box provided a win for the home team. Chelsea made it back to winning ways in the Premier League after a 2-0 win over Fulham at Stamford Bridge. Pedro’s fourth-minute goal helped ease nerves inside the stadium, while a second-half goal from Ruben Loftus-Cheek made sure of the three points for Maurizio Sarri’s men.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Chelsea travel to the Molineux Stadium hoping to rediscover their winning touch even on the road. The blues have actually performed well away from home this season before crashing to a 3-1 loss at Spurs in the last away game. Wolves have played some good football this season but a lack of confidence has seen their performances deteriorate over the last few matches. A Chelsea win is my pick in this game.

Even though Wolves have been on a poor run, they have conceded over 2.5 goals only once in the last 15 games across all competitions. Such has been their decent defensive showing this season that it would be unwise to expect a high scoring game in this match.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Preview

Nuno was lauded for the way Wolves where a breath of fresh air in the first few months of the Premier League, but the Portuguese manager has now become the second favourite to get sacked. It is due to a disastrous run of form for the newly promoted team, who appear to have lost the confidence that played a major role in their success in the early part of the campaign. Wolves have struggled with goals throughout the season, but they have been defensively poor in recent matches to make matters worse. A return of 13 goals from 14 league matches place Wolves close at the bottom of the pile.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Team News

Ruben Neves is suspended for the match, while Johny (ligament) is unavailable due to injury.

Chelsea Preview

Maurizio Sarri’s men are back among the winning ways after the comfortable success over Fulham, but even this match presented Chelsea with more defensive issues. The decision to use N’Golo Kante further up the pitch has been widely criticised in recent weeks and the role played by the French midfielder in the opening goal against Fulham once again added fuel to the criticism. Sarri has also been criticised for not using the fringe players more often, but the long list of games in the next few weeks could bring about a change in this regard. Eden Hazard remains as the Chelsea top scorer even after failing to score in the last 10 games for club and country.

Chelsea Team News

Victor Moses (back), Ross Barkley (knock), and Marco van Ginkel (cruciate ligament) are unavailable for Chelsea.
