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

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, 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.

Its absolutely no wonder at all to see why hes being coveted by others, and he will be looking to keep it up here. Gonzalo Higuain is also looking to keep up his recent form. In the win over Fulham, he scored his third goal so far in five PL matches, showing he is getting adjusted to his new surroundings. Hes scored 12 times in the league already while laying off 11 assists. Eden Hazard is a mooted transfer target of some other big clubs, and its getting close to time to figure out where he will be going.

Chelsea vs Wolves Prediction

However, things have fallen apart a little of late for them. Its all very inconsistent, so its tough to make a clear read on them against a very huge club such as the Blues. They have two wins from the last five, but they only have a point from their last two away matches. Wolves away record sees them in ninth in the PL with 19 points from 14 matches. Thats an unbelievable rate for a newly promoted team, with others that had reached the top flight last term doing miserably.

He scored in both games against them last season and will hope to add to that when the Blues travel to the Molineux on Saturday. He has begun this season with two goals to his name in four games so far and embodies his side's nature of turning up against the top 6 in the Premier League. The Mexican hitman has a tiny scoring streak building against Chelsea.

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. 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. 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 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.

They still have a good chance in the Europa League, and they continue to have one here, too. Ahead of this weekends round of fixtures, Chelsea will enter play in sixth place on 56 points. As much as it might be difficult for them, there is no question that Sarris job is at stake should he not get them into the Champions League for next season. They are sixth, but they are only two off of Manchester United, so its still all to play for.
