Matches with Chelsea have often been lively ones lately with a lot of goalmouth action anticipated. Over their past 6 clashes, a total of 24 goals have been recorded for both sides combined (at an average of 4 goals per game) with 13 of these accredited to The Blues.
Their past results show that Chelsea:
- are unbeaten in the league by Wolverhampton Wanderers in their last 2 games.
- are undefeated in their previous 5 home league matches.
Wolves head into the match after a 2-0 Premier League win against Crystal Palace in their last fixture.
In that game, Wolverhampton Wanderers had 53% possession and 11 shots on goal with 5 on target. For Wolverhampton Wanderers, the goals were scored by Daniel Podence (41') and Jonny (68'). For their opponents, Crystal Palace had 7 shots on goal with 3 of them on target.
For 5 of the past 6 games involving Wolverhampton Wanderers, a notably low volume of goals have been scored between them and their opposition. The overall average goals scored per game within that period comes to just 1.83, with the average goals for Wolves equalling 1.17. That kind of trend won’t necessarily be continued into this game, of course.
Ahead of this clash, Wolverhampton Wanderers have not won away from home in their last 2 league matches.
Head to head
A review of their past head to head meetings going back to 02/01/2012 shows us that Chelsea have won 4 of these and Wolves 1, with the number of drawn games standing at 1.

Team News: Chelsea
Ethan Ampadu (Back trouble), Billy Gilmour (Knee Injury) and Abdul Rahman Baba (Knee Injury) will be missing for Chelsea manager Frank Lampard.
It’s our opinion that The Blues will possibly use the 3-4-3 formation and select Kepa Arrizabalaga, Antonio Rüdiger, Kurt Zouma, Cesar Azpilicueta, Marcos Alonso, Mateo Kovacic, Jorginho, Reece James, Christian Pulisic, Olivier Giroud and Willian.
Team News: Wolves
Owing to a completely injury-free group ready to go, Wolves boss Nuno Espírito Santo has zero fitness concerns to report ahead of this game.
We believe Wolves will likely elect for a 3-4-3 lineup with a starting lineup of Rui Patricio, Willy Boly, Conor Coady, Romain Saiss, Matt Doherty, Rúben Neves, Joao Moutinho, Jonny, Adama Traore, Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota.
We feel that in this game, Chelsea should get the win and a possible clean sheet when they play Wolves, who could well struggle scoring a goal of their own.
We’re tipping a pretty comfortable 2-0 winning margin for Chelsea come full-time.
