Chelsea’s recent form has been uneven, and a top-three finish that was assured is suddenly in jeopardy. They will play Wolverhampton Wanderers in their next league game, and they are in third position with 66 points, while Wolves are in ninth place with 49 points.
Chelsea are coming off a 1-0 defeat to relegation-threatened Everton, which put their third-place finish in jeopardy, only three points ahead of Arsenal. Two wins in the last six games have halted their league run, leaving them with only the FA Cup to contend with.
They do, however, have a decent scoring streak going, having failed to score in only one of their last ten games. They haven’t beaten Wolves in three games in a row and will be looking to change that.
Wolves haven’t lost to Chelsea in their last three meetings, with the last two ending in 0-0 draws and a 2-1 victory earlier this season. They’ll need a lot of that here, as they come into this game on a three-game losing streak.
In their last three games, the visitors have failed to score, and they have lost seven of their last ten games. Wolves have just suffered a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Brighton, their second three-goal defeat in five games. Wolves, who were regarded as one of the finest defensive teams earlier in the season, have had two clean sheets in their last five games.
Chelsea may have suffered recently, but they will be favourites here, with Wolves coming off a particularly poor run. Wolves haven’t lost in three games against Chelsea, but they’re struggling to score. This match will be won by Chelsea.
KICKOFF TIME: Chelsea versus Wolverhampton Wanderers match will go down on Saturday at 3PM Nigerian time.
