The Wolves and Chelsea face off on Tuesday in an English Premier League showdown at Molineux Stadium.
Chelsea currently sits in 5th place in the Premier League standings having picked up 22 points. Chelsea has found some success this season but there has to be a sour taste in their mouth after how they played against Everton. Chelsea had 72 percent of the possession, but they could only manage three shots on target. Chelsea gave up a penalty kick to Everton in the 22nd minute and that was the difference in the game as they failed to pick up any points. Chelsea will be without Ziyech and that is a big loss for this squad, but it’s not an excuse to not get more shots on goal with how much of the possession they had in the last game. This is a game that Chelsea has to pick up three points in if they want to finish in the top four in the standings.
The Wolves have been up and down this season and they currently sit in 13th place in the standings with 17 points. A win in this game would be very helpful for a team that wants to finish at least in the top eight of the standings. The Wolves are really struggling and coming into this game they have lost two games in a row. Two games ago against Liverpool they lost 4-0, and in the last game against Aston Villa they lost 1-0. Juao Moutinho picked up a red card in the last game and that he won’t be available for this game. The Wolves are a defense first team, but their offense has been a big issue in the last two games not putting any goals in the back of the net. The Wolves last scored goals back on November 29th against Arsenal, a game they put up two goals in. In this game if they want to come away with a victory, the Wolves need to find a way to get their offense going.
Chelsea should be closer to -200 or -250 in this game. The Wolves offense is a big issue and that is going to continue in this game. Look for Chelsea to find a couple of goals, and the Wolves will struggle to score in this one. Back Chelsea on the money line.
