Wolves hold the number twelve spot in the league standings with sixteen points from four wins, four draws, and six losses. Currently, they are on a two-game losing streak with their most recent loss being against Cardiff by the result of 2-1. While they could quickly turn things around and while this could easily be a blip in the road and nothing more, there’s always the possibility of them sinking further and further down the table. Ruben Neves is suspended for this one which could see Dendoncker being brought in, with Traore being expected to drop to the bench and Ryan Bennett being tipped to start.
Chelsea is placed third in the league with thirty-one points and a record of nine wins, four draws, and a single loss. In their most recent round, they faced Fulham and won the game by the result of 2-0. It didn’t take long for the Blues to take the lead. Chelsea was able to bounce back from their recent defeat against Tottenham Hotspur, but they still find themselves looking over their shoulder in the race to secure a spot in the top four. Maurizio Sarri has done a solid job of steadying the ship since taking over at Stamford Bridge but there’s still a long way to go, and there are still many different factors of the English game that he needs to perfect. He’s well on his way to making the Blues title contenders again, but there are a few more steps required before they get to that point.
Probable Line-ups: :
Chelsea: Arrizabalaga; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Emerson; Kante, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek; Willian, Morata, Hazard.
Wolves: Patricio; Boly, Coady, Bennett; Vinagre, Gibbs-White, Moutinho, Doherty; Cavalero, Bonatini, Jota.
My PlayerzPot XI:
Chelsea has won 9 of their last 10 matches against Wolves in all competitions so this one here won’t be a task.
