Wolves v Chelsea
BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
On Saturday afternoon, Wolves host Chelsea at Molineux, as both teams look to get their Premier League campaigns back on track.
Wolves have made a poor start to their Premier League campaign. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side drew their opening three league matches against Leicester, Manchester United and Burnley before suffering a 3-2 defeat at Everton last time out.
The poor start to the season means that that the home side has failed to win in their last five top-flight outings. Their recent Premier League matches have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in five of their last six league games.
Wolves at least have maintained a reasonably strong home record of late, as they are unbeaten in ten league matches at Molineux. However, five of those matches have finished all-square.
Just like their recent general matches in the Premier League, their home games have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five outings.
Chelsea have endured a mixed start to their campaign so far, but have won just once in their opening four matches. Last time out, the Blues threw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 against Sheffield United.
The visitors will look to young striker Tammy Abraham for goals, as the 21-year-old has now scored four times in as many league outings for Frank Lampard’s team this season.
A 3-2 win at Norwich ended a four-game league winless run on their travels for the Blues dating back to April of last year.
Wolves are without the suspended Willy Boly after a late red card at Everton. The home side also has major doubts over the fitness of wing-back Matt Doherty and midfielder Roman Saiss.
Chelsea are still likely to be without Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi due to injury, while Emerson, Pedro and N’Golo Kante are fitness doubts and Antonio Rudiger is still recovering from injury, but could still feature.
