Wolverhampton vs Chelsea Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


It is a clash of poor defences as Wolves host Chelsea in an English Premier League fixture at Molineux. Both teams have been far from convincing at the back in the early part of the season and are tipped to produce BTTS.

Wolverhampton Wanderers FC Form & Team News 


Wolves are coming off their first Premier League defeat of the season after suffering a 3-2 loss at Everton last time out. They had fought back from behind twice in the contest thanks to efforts from Romain Saiss and Raul Jimenez but conceded the winner 10 minutes from time. 

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men had not been at their best this season before the defeat at Everton, having drawn their opening three matches. A win on Saturday is priced at 2.90 by the bookmakers but given their recent results, a draw offers more value at 3.20.

Wolves have struggled at the back this season having failed to keep a clean sheet since their opening fixture at Leicester. They will have to make do without defender Wily Boly who was shown a red card at Everton. They do however have plenty of quality at the other end of the pitch with Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota likely to feature.

Chelsea FC Form & Team News 


Chelsea were held to a 2-2 draw at home against newly promoted Sheffield United in their last Premier League fixture. They went into the break with a two-goal lead thanks to a brace from Tammy Abraham but were breached twice in the second half by the Blades.

The Blues have been hampered by poor defending this season and travel to Molineux with just one Premier League victory. Frank Lampard’s men are valued at 2.45 to win on Saturday but having kept no clean sheets this season, BTTS is worth a punt at odds of 1.75.

After a slow start to the season, Tammy Abraham appears to be coming into his own at Chelsea. He has scored four goals already and should retain his place in attack with Mason Mount set to start in midfield having also found the net twice this term.

Wolverhampton vs Chelsea Head to Head


Chelsea have a 35-28 advantage with 19 draws from 82 previous matches against Wolves. The last two meetings have produced BTTS with the most recent clash between both teams ending 1-1.
