Premier League: Wolverhampton vs Chelsea preview, team news, prediction and tips
December 18


Wolverhampton will play hosts to Chelsea in the Premier League matchday 18 on Sunday. The kick-off is at 16:00 CEST.


Even though Wolves have only won once in their last five PL matches, against Brighton (1-0) on Wednesday, Bruno Lage's men continue to prove themselves a hard nut to crack as they've only conceded twice in their previous six league matches. Thus, the Wanderers are coming into this encounter sitting in the eighth position in the table with 24 points.

Chelsea, for their part, have struggled with getting positive results lately. Thomas Tuchel's side 'boast' a record of just two wins in their last five Premier League matches and will travel to Molineux on the back of a disappointing 1-1 draw with Everton on Thursday. As Man City and Liverpool won their mid-week clashes, Chelsea are now four and three points adrift of their main title rivals respectively, sitting in the third spot with 37 points.

Team news

Rayan Ait-Nouri and Hwang Hee-chan are set to sit out Sunday's fixture for the hosts after picking up injuries against Brighton. The visitors, in turn, are set to be without the services of Jorginho who is struggling with a back issue while Callum Hudson-Odoi, Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku will definitely miss their side's trip to the West Midlands due to Covid-19. Ben Chilwell and Kai Havertz. in turn, will play no part on the weekend through a long-term injury and illness respectively.


Given all Chelsea's absentees, especially Lukaku and Werner, and Wolves' defensive strength thiss term so far, we'd say that you certainly should not expect a goal fest taking place at Molineux on Sunday. Still, the Blues remain the hot favourites to claim all three points in this one, so let's give Tuchel's crop a slight advantage.
