Our Prediction:

Chelsea will win

Wolves – Chelsea Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 10:00

They still have a good chance in the Europa League, and they continue to have one here, too. Ahead of this weekends round of fixtures, Chelsea will enter play in sixth place on 56 points. As much as it might be difficult for them, there is no question that Sarris job is at stake should he not get them into the Champions League for next season. They are sixth, but they are only two off of Manchester United, so its still all to play for.

Chelsea, or the Blues as everyone calls them made quite a slow start to their campaign. In those matches, they scored 6 goals and conceded 9. Also, their opponents are known for being weak in defending against long shots, and since long shots is a kind of speciality for the Blues, I expect them to go for them. They are placed 11th in the standings with 4 played games out of which they won 1, drawn 2 and lost 1. Besides those league matches, they also played UEFA Super Cup match against Liverpool, and it also didnt end well for the Blues, they lost 3-2 after penalties. All that gives us the insight that this will be an important game for them, where they will give their best to win this time and get their much-needed confidence back.

Molineux Stadium will host Saturdays football game between Wolverhampton and Chelsea, the two teams who sit in the bottom half of the Premier League table ahead of Matchday 5. Frank Lampards men have been struggling at the back of late, with the team conceding four goals in total in previous two league fixtures. The Wolves are eyeing their first win of the season and, no doubt, they want to take advantage of the fact that the Blues made a slow start to their Premier League campaign.

Jota is much more mercurial than the consistent and hard running Jimenez, but hes a world beater on his day for certain, meaning that Chelsea have to be careful to prevent him from running riot. But chances are hes going to be below par if he is not at his best. Wolves got back to winning ways against Cardiff with their lethal and underrated strike partnership last weekend as Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez each scored and assisted for each other in the victory. That took Jimenezs totals up to 11 goals and six assists, while Jota now has six and three.

Wolves vs Chelsea Head-to-head (h2h)

The player to watch in the home team will be Ral Jimnez who netted two goals since the beginning of this season. The right-back is suffering from a heel bone injury and his return date is still unknown. However, Im sure that their coach Nuno Esprito Santo wont have a hard time picking his starting eleven, as he has many other great players including newcomers, at his disposal. Phil Ofosu-Ayeh is the only unavailable player in the hosting team.

Wolves, commonly known as the Wanderers, started their Premier League campaign quite sloppily, and they havent won a single game this season. All that sums up to 3.4 goals per match, and given the form of both teams clashing this time I believe that over 2.5 is a highly likely outcome. They are currently 17th in the league with 3 points from 4 matches. In their most recent 5 games in all competitions they had mixed results with 2 victories, 2 draws and 1 loss, in which we saw them score 9 goals while allowing 8.

Also, the last five straight match-ups of the Wanderers and eight of the previous nine of Chelsea had goals from both sides, and this too points towards the low possibility of the hosts keeping a clean sheet. Coming to goals, with the apparent higher stature of the Blues, the intent wish of Frank Lampard to get into the good books of fans, and Wolverhamptons struggles in the league at the moment, the chance for the guests to return empty-handed is quite low too.

Expert Verdict: Chelsea typically have wiped the floor with Wolves in the when they have met in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge, and despite the fact that Wolves are much better than we've ever seen them before, you might just get an inkling that similar things could happen here. They get that with a bit of a statement win. The Blues are getting closer to their best form, and they will be hungry to get revenge for their loss in the reverse fixture.

The two clubs have had their fair share of matches in their history, but many of those clashes took place a long time ago, so I focused on three matches they played in the recent years. In them, both teams were victorious once each, and in the most recent clash, it was a draw. Both teams will for sure play the best they can in the battle for getting all 3 points, but I believe that given their current form and overall strength, the visitors have a slight edge over the hosts in this fixture. None of those matches was goalless, and in total Chelsea scored 4 goals while the Wolves scored 3.

Wolves Predicted Starting Line up

Chelsea have been playing at Stamford Bridge since 1876 and they are a real force to be reckoned with at home. Rafael Benitez was in charge of the team that faced Benfica in the 2012/2013 Europa League final, with Branislav Ivanovic scoring the winner for the Blues in the title clash. The Blues have won seven FA Cups, five League Cups, two UEFA Cup Winners Cups and the UEFA Europa League.

Sporting Lisbon and Portugal national team goalkeeper Rui Patricio is a one-club man. He was reportedly close to signing with Serie A giants Inter Milan during the 2008 of-season, but he remained in his club where he will most likely hang up his boots when the time comes. The 28-year-old shot stopper spent most of his career with the Lions making his debut with the first-team at only 18 years of age.
