The Blues are hoping to bounce back from a loss to Everton and return to top four when they visit Molineux Stadium. Frank Lampard’s team is a favorite to get three points and in our Wolves vs Chelsea Preview you can see what we think of this Premier League game.
Wolves Recent Form & Team News
Wolves have slipped into the bottom half after following up a 2-1 win at Arsenal (Nov 29) with successive losses, making it two games from their last three favoring the pre-match outsider. Despite this, Wolves’ win rate as pre-match outsiders in the league since the start of 2019/20 stood at just 25.0% (W5, D6, L9) going into the previous league round.
The hosts have avoided defeat in four of their last five home matches (W2, D2, L1), drawing 0-0 with their opponents in the first half of play in both draws. However, last season’s corresponding Premier League fixture was a firecracker from the start, ending 5-2 to Chelsea, and seeing both halves produce over 2.5 goals!
Player to watch: Young Wolves star Daniel Podence scored the decider in Wolves’ last win over another of the PL’s ever-present London clubs.
Nuno Espirito Santo cannot count on Raul Jimenez (concussion), Jonny (knee), and Joao Moutinho (suspension).
Chelsea Recent Form & Team News
Chelsea travel to Molineux after losing 1-0 at Everton, recording no second-half shots on target despite recording 72% possession overall. They were unbeaten in nine PL games prior (W5, D4), while keeping a clean sheet in four of the last six assignments in that run. Going further back, Chelsea have beaten the -1 handicap in each of their last seven PL victories, winning both halves on four occasions.
In a true sign of their staying power when traveling, Chelsea have led at HT in nine of their last 12 PL away wins. However, they have proven themselves strong in the latter stages too, with the Blues registering eight of their 11 Premier League away goals this term after the break.
Player to watch: Tammy Abraham scored a hat trick (including a first-half double) in last season’s H2H here.
Hot stat: Five of the previous six PL H2Hs at Molineux have seen Chelsea go into the interval with a clean sheet.
Frank Lampard will be without Callum Hudson-Odoi (thigh) and Hakim Ziyech (thigh).
