Wolves v Chelsea


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.

Match Prediction

Neither team has been great so far this season. I can see the two teams cancelling each other out and the game finishing in a draw.
