The Wolves and Chelsea face off on Wednesday in an English Premier League showdown at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea currently sits in 9th place in the English Premier League standings with 29 points picked up so far. Chelsea has fired their manager Frank Lampard and maybe that change will be enough to give this team a spark. Coming into this game Chelsea has lost two of their last three games and the only win was against a terrible Fulham team. In the last game against Leicester City, the offense was awful scoring only zero goals and that led to a 2-0 defeat. Chelsea comes into this game having put 33 goals in the back of the net while their defense has given up 23 goals. Tammy Abraham has been the best player for Chelsea putting six goals in the back of the net.
On the other side of this matchup the Wolves who currently sit in 14th place in the standings with 22 points picked up. The last few years this Wolves team has all been about defense but this year that defense hasn’t been as strong. The last win for the Wolves came all the way back on December 15th. Each of the last two games the Wolves have been defeated including their last game against West Brom. The defense really struggled giving up three goals and even though they scored two goals that led to the loss. On the season, the Wolves have put up 21 goals total while their defense has given up 29 goals total. Pedro Neto and Raul Jimenez have been the best player for the Wolves putting four goals in the back of the net.
The Wolves defense is an issue and I think Chelsea is going to find success. The Wolves offense won’t keep up and that will lead to Chelsea coming away with a victory.
