Wolves vs Chelsea Premier League 2021 Match Prediction, Injuries/Suspension, Match Facts, Team News, Preview and Where to Watch.
In their midweek victory, Wolverhampton Wanderers survived 11 minutes of added time (1-0 vs Brighton).
A similar display of tenacity will help them win their third home game against Chelsea in four seasons.
However, any Wolves victory is unlikely to be glamorous, since Molineux has only seen 12 goals this season, the fewest in the league.
Wolves’ win over Brighton last time out was also their sixth game in a row with fewer than 1.5 total goals.
They are the first Premier League (PL) team to have a six-game run with four or less total goals since Wigan (2008/09).
As a result, scoring early could be crucial for Wolves, especially because just three teams have conceded less Premier League home goals than Wolves this season.
Chelsea, on the other hand, come here as pre-match favorites despite losing to a depleted Everton (1-1) in midweek.
They’ve only won one of their last four competitive games.
However, history suggests that Thomas Tuchel’s side is due a win this weekend, as they have alternated victories and losses in their last five Premier League visits to Molineux.
They will, however, be without a few key players owing to the PL’s current Covid dilemma.
On their most recent road trip, Chelsea lost only their second Premier League away game under Thomas Tuchel, and have now conceded four goals in their past two PL away games.
Despite this, Chelsea’s attacking prowess is undeniable, with the ‘Blues’ looking to make it five consecutive Premier League away games with two or more goals scored for the first time since July 2020.Newcastle vs Manchester City Premier League Match Prediction
