Wolves vs Chelsea Preview, Team News, Line-Ups, Betting Tips & Prediction

By on February 17, 2017

Chelsea will look to book their place in the quarter finals of the FA Cup when they take on Wolves at Molineux on Saturday afternoon. 

Antonio Conte’s side saw their lead at the top of the Premier League cup to 8 points after being held to a 1-1 draw at Burnley last weekend but the west Londoners will now turn their focus to cup matters.

The Blues have breezed in to the fifth round of the FA Cup thanks to comprehensive victories over Peterborough and Brentford but they’ll face a much trickier trip to Wolves this weekend.

The Championship side knocked Liverpool out in the previous round so Paul Lambert will be eyeing another scalp on home soil tomorrow afternoon.

Team news

Conte has confirmed he’ll take the opportunity to rest David Luiz as the defender continues to feel an old knee injury that he’s been carrying in recent months.

John Terry could replace the Brazilian international at the back after he recovered from a minor knock while Nathan Ake is expected to start on the left with Marcos Alonso rested.

Conte may decide to give the likes of Asmir Begovic, Kurt Zouma, Cesc Fabregas and Michy Batshuayi a run out in order to give some of his key men a breather.

As for Wolves, they hope to have Jack Price and Nouha Dicko available for selection but Joe Mason and Ivan Cavaleiro remain unavailable.

Likely Line-Ups

Wolves: Ikeme, Coady, Hause, Stearman, Doherty, Edwards, Price, Weimann, Saville, Costa, Dicko

Predicted Score

Wolves 0-2 Chelsea: The Blues have been in formidable form for the past four months and even if Conte decides to rotate his squad tomorrow, I still think they’ll have too much for Wolves. The hosts were excellent against Liverpool but they’ve lost their last three games and I think we’ll see them crash out of the cup with Chelsea progressing thanks to a 2-0 win.
