|Date & Time||Wednesday December 5, 2018, 12:30 PM (EST)|
The Line: Chelsea -120 / Draw +270 /Wolves +375 -- Over/Under: 2.5
In the English Premier League, Wolves will host Chelsea at Molineux Stadium in Wolverhampton.
Wolves had an exceptionally strong start to the season as they got points against many of the top teams including Manchester United and Manchester City. Unfortunately for Wolves, have not continued their early season form and big losses in their past few fixtures have resulted in the team to drop down to 12th place. The last two matches have been exceptionally disappointing as they lost to both Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town. It has now been 6 successive games since Wolves have won and the team will feel the pressure is building as they are sliding down the ladder.
On the other side of the coin, Chelsea managed to win comfortably in the West London derby as the beat Fulham 2-0 at home. It was a good performance by the team as they controlled 66% of the possession and had 9 shots on goal to ensure the match was won with comfort. With the good form of teams like Arsenal and Tottenham, Chelsea will know the importance of winning every possible game as it spots in the top 4 are going to be very hard to obtain this season.
This will be the first time that Chelsea and Wolves will be playing each other in the Premier League in an age as Wolves were only promoted at the end of last season for the English League Championship. The last time these two teams met was in the 2017 FA Cup where Chelsea won 2-0.
All in all, I am going to pick Chelsea to win this match. Wolves have looked very poor over the past few months while Chelsea are looking very strong. With Chelsea having the better squad and stronger form, I see the Blues winning this match with ease.
