Our Prediction:

Chelsea will win

Wolves – Chelsea Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 10:00

Im excited to see Tammy Abraham who netted a brace in their latest affair against Sheffield United and scored 4 goals in total this season. Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Marco van Ginkel will definitely be unable to participate in this match, while their teammates Reece James and Callum Hudson-Odoi are questionable as they are expected to return but we have yet to see that. The visiting team is still having trouble with injured players.

Expert Verdict: Chelsea typically have wiped the floor with Wolves in the when they have met in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge, and despite the fact that Wolves are much better than we've ever seen them before, you might just get an inkling that similar things could happen here. They get that with a bit of a statement win. The Blues are getting closer to their best form, and they will be hungry to get revenge for their loss in the reverse fixture.

Molineux Stadium will host Saturdays football game between Wolverhampton and Chelsea, the two teams who sit in the bottom half of the Premier League table ahead of Matchday 5. Frank Lampards men have been struggling at the back of late, with the team conceding four goals in total in previous two league fixtures. The Wolves are eyeing their first win of the season and, no doubt, they want to take advantage of the fact that the Blues made a slow start to their Premier League campaign.

Nuno Espirito Santos side twice came from behind to level the scores but conceded a Richarlison winner ten minutes from time. To add insult to injury, Willy Boly was dismissed after picking up a second yellow in second-half stoppage time. Wolves nine-match unbeaten run across all competitions came to an end last time out as they lost 3-2 to Everton at Goodison Park.

Chelsea predicted line-up vs Wolves

Chelsea, or the Blues as everyone calls them made quite a slow start to their campaign. In those matches, they scored 6 goals and conceded 9. Also, their opponents are known for being weak in defending against long shots, and since long shots is a kind of speciality for the Blues, I expect them to go for them. They are placed 11th in the standings with 4 played games out of which they won 1, drawn 2 and lost 1. Besides those league matches, they also played UEFA Super Cup match against Liverpool, and it also didnt end well for the Blues, they lost 3-2 after penalties. All that gives us the insight that this will be an important game for them, where they will give their best to win this time and get their much-needed confidence back.

Wolves, commonly known as the Wanderers, started their Premier League campaign quite sloppily, and they havent won a single game this season. All that sums up to 3.4 goals per match, and given the form of both teams clashing this time I believe that over 2.5 is a highly likely outcome. They are currently 17th in the league with 3 points from 4 matches. In their most recent 5 games in all competitions they had mixed results with 2 victories, 2 draws and 1 loss, in which we saw them score 9 goals while allowing 8.

Also, the last five straight match-ups of the Wanderers and eight of the previous nine of Chelsea had goals from both sides, and this too points towards the low possibility of the hosts keeping a clean sheet. Coming to goals, with the apparent higher stature of the Blues, the intent wish of Frank Lampard to get into the good books of fans, and Wolverhamptons struggles in the league at the moment, the chance for the guests to return empty-handed is quite low too.

The player to watch in the home team will be Ral Jimnez who netted two goals since the beginning of this season. The right-back is suffering from a heel bone injury and his return date is still unknown. However, Im sure that their coach Nuno Esprito Santo wont have a hard time picking his starting eleven, as he has many other great players including newcomers, at his disposal. Phil Ofosu-Ayeh is the only unavailable player in the hosting team.

Jota is much more mercurial than the consistent and hard running Jimenez, but hes a world beater on his day for certain, meaning that Chelsea have to be careful to prevent him from running riot. But chances are hes going to be below par if he is not at his best. Wolves got back to winning ways against Cardiff with their lethal and underrated strike partnership last weekend as Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez each scored and assisted for each other in the victory. That took Jimenezs totals up to 11 goals and six assists, while Jota now has six and three.

Wolves will begin the weekend in seventh place in the table having played 29 times and earned 43 points. With just one win in their last four, though, they do need to get headed back in the right direction in order to seal up the best of the rest place ahead of Watford and co. Thats a brilliant record for a newly promoted side, and its gotten to the point where you can hardly tell anymore. They had that blip to Huddersfield recently, but they rebounded by beating Cardiff, so its interesting to discuss where they are currently.
