Wolves vs Chelsea
English Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 15 December 2020
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium.
The Blues are one of the best teams in the competition at the moment. They have formed a dominating trio along with Liverpool and Tottenham this season, and are in firm control of the podium spots.
They have lost just once all through this campaign, and only the Reds have scored more goals than them in the PL – and that too just one extra goal.
Do note that they have also been phenomenal away from home in the past two months. Meanwhile, the Wanderers are going through a troubling period of inconsistency.
They actually are one of the best teams in the league – but coupled with their recent problems, and the fact that they are pitted against Frank Lampard’s men make them the underdogs this Tuesday.
On top of that, the 2016-17 champions also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years.
As such, expect Chelsea to dominate proceedings at the Molineux Stadium.
Wolves vs Chelsea: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Lampard’s men won the latest encounter with a 2-0 scorecard. The game had taken place just four months back.
- In the game before that, they had recorded a 2-5 win on the road.
- They had recorded 11 of the former 13 overall wins.
- Since 2000, the hosts have won just twice at this ground.
- The visitors have scored a total of 17 goals from the preceding seven clashes at this venue.
Wolves vs Chelsea: Prediction
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men lost 4-0 on the road the last match-day, against Liverpool. In the meantime, the Blues registered a 3-1 win at home against Leeds.
Going on, Lampard’s men are on a 17-game unbeaten run, and they had won eight of their former ten fixtures. They are also on a five-game winning run on the road, and recorded a combined scorecard of 1-15 in the process.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in seven of their preceding eleven match-ups, and they have had a total of just two wins at home since August.
Going on, the Blues also have a great h2h record against this rival, and have scored goals in plenty against them.
Taking these observations into account, expect Chelsea to have a great shot at posting the three points on the board. And since the Wanderers are currently experiencing problems in their defense, an early goal is expected as well.
