Wolves vs Chelsea
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 14 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium (Wolverhampton).
It may be hard to believe, but these two titans have combined to record just a single win from their total eight matches in the competition so far. And it’s important to note that this sole win had come against the newly-promoted Norwich.
Both have made colorless starts to their campaigns, and with competition for the European spots showing no signs of slowing down, these two will be desperate to get back on track.
Of the two, Wolves are the ones worse off. Along with Watford, placed 20th in the table, they are the only ones to yet post a win on the board.
The schedule allotted for Wolverhampton surely has had a role to play in this barren run. In their first four match-days, the squad had had to take on Leicester City, Manchester United, and Everton. And now, they are about to welcome Frank Lampard’s Chelsea.
For sure, from a neutral standpoint of view, fans are about to witness a great struggle for existence.
Wolves vs Chelsea Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last two matches had goals from both teams.
- Nine of the former eleven wins went to Chelsea.
- Only once have the guests failed to find the back of the net at this stadium, in the previous 16 years.
- Wolves conceded twice or more in four of the former six match-ups at home.
Wolves vs Chelsea Prediction
First things first – despite the team going winless so far in the competition, only once have in fact Wolverhampton lost. Moreover, they do enjoy the home advantage, and to compensate for their struggles in the Premier League, the Wanderers have been tearing it up in the Europa League.
In addition, the side went unbeaten in 16 of their previous 18 overall ties and is on a streak of 17 undefeated match-ups at home. On the other hand, the Blues were winless in five of their previous six overall games, and in three of their last four on the road.
Consequentially, taking into the current form of Chelsea, their away handicap, and the form of the hosts at this venue, the probability for an away win is quite low.
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 Wolverhampton’s struggles in the league at the moment, the chance for the guests to return empty-handed is quite low too. 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.
Perse, await the hosts to avoid a loss, but not a clean sheet though.
