Wolves vs Chelsea Preview | Latest Team News | Expected Line-Up’s | Prediction
Here is our match preview ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Wolves including team news, expected line-ups and predicted score
Chelsea will look to keep pace with the top two with a win when they take on Wolves at Molineux this evening.
The Blues eased to a 2-0 victory over West London rivals Fulham at the weekend with Pedro and Ruben Loftus-Cheek scoring the goals to ensure they bounced back from the disappointing defeat to Tottenham the previous weekend.
The win means Chelsea sit third in the Premier League table – five points adrift of Liverpool and 10 behind leaders Man City following their win at Watford last night – so Maurizio Sarri’s men desperately need to come away with a win tonight to keep in touch.
They’ve face Wolves side that are in free-fall as after making an encouraging start to the new season, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have lost five of their last six matches and sit 13th in the table after losing to Cardiff City last time out.
Chelsea could be without Marcos Alonso after he was forced off against Fulham with a back injury so Emerson Palmeiri is on stand-by to deputise at left-back this evening.
Mateo Kovacic may also not be risked after picking up a knock at the weekend while Ross Barkley has been carrying an ankle injury so Loftus-Cheek may start in midfield tonight.
Wolves will have to make do without influential midfielder Ruben Neves due to suspension while Jonny Otto remains on the sidelines with a knee injury.
Wolves 0-2 Chelsea: Wolves are on a poor run of form and have lost seven of their last eight league games against Chelsea. The Blues also have an excellent record against newly-promoted sides having lost just one of their last 13 away games so I fancy Chelsea to take home all three points this evening.
