Wolverhampton will face Chelsea on Wednesday, seeking for a first win since 6 October. The Wolves are winless in six league games, three of these coming at the Molineux Stadium. Due to the lack of points, Wolverhampton went down to the twelve place in the standings. The problems for The Wolves are mainly due to their bad performance in the first halves.
Chelsea got the three points against Fulham at the weekend and returned to the third place in the Premier League after Tottenham didn’t win against Arsenal. The Blues have only one loss since the start of the season and away from home got 13 points from six games.
Although Wolverhampton is not playing well in the past weeks, their performances against the best teams in the league have been great. The Wolves got a point against Arsenal and were close to a draw against Tottenham, although they were losing by three goals 20 minutes before the final whistle. Chelsea have nine wins since the start of the season, but is not convincing in defence and concedes a lot of goals. I will back Both Teams to Score, with Chelsea 2-1 Correct Score.
