After a disappointing loss to Everton last time out, Chelsea will look to get back to winning ways this Saturday when they welcome Wolves to Stamford Bridge.
After a bright start to the season, the Blues have completely fallen away, dropping out of the title race while struggling to win games. Although they come into this weekend sitting in third, they are in danger of dropping out of the top four given that they are just three points ahead of Arsenal in fourth.
Tottenham, who are in fourth, are five points behind and could still leapfrog them unless they continue to win their games. And so, Thomas Tuchel’s side will look to keep their chances of finishing in the UCL spots in their hand by winning their remaining games, and especially this one against Wolves, as their London rivals will face themselves next week.
The hosts have lost three out of their last six games and have conceded six times in their last four PL games. But they have a good record at home against Wolves having not lost to the West Midlands side at home since 1979 winning seven of those games and drawing three times.
They also kept a clean sheet in six out of their last seven meetings with Wolves and so should fancy their chances of recording another shut-out, as they did in the reverse fixture.
Possible Chelsea starting line-up
Edouard Mendy; César Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger; Reece James, Marcos Alonso, Mateo Kovacic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek; Mason Mount, Hakim Ziyech; Kai Havertz.
Injured: Ben Chilwell, Callum Hudson-Odoi
Doubtful: Ross Barkley, Andreas Christensen
Wolves will look to get their first win in four games when they play Chelsea on Saturday.
The visitors’ quest for a place in took another hit last time out as they were beaten 3-0 by Graham Potter’s Brighton & Hove Albion side.
The loss was a third consecutive loss and their fourth loss in their last five games. They have failed to score in their last three games and are currently the fourth-lowest scoring side in the league.
Meanwhile, each of their last four away league matches produced a 1-0 scoreline (W1, L3) with the scoring confined to the second half, and Wolves’ only shot against Brighton came in the 85th minute. And so, we could expect another low-scoring affair given that both teams have failed to score in each of their last two meetings with Chelsea.
Possible Wolves starting line-up
Jose Sa; Willy Boly, Conor Coady, Romain Saiss; Jonny, Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho, Fernando Marcal; Francisco Trincao, Hee Chan-Hwang; Raul Jimenez.
Injured: Max Kilman, Daniel Podence, Nelson Semedo
Chelsea 0-0 Wolves
