England Premier League
Sunday 10th March 2019
Kick off at 2:05pm GMT
Venue: Stamford Bridge
All of a sudden life is rosy for Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri who looked like he was on the verge of the sack a few weeks ago. However Chelsea have put two wins together and have a game in hand, which if they win would put them into 4th place. On top of that they have one foot firmly in the quarter finals of the Europa League after beating Dynamo Kiev 3-0 in the first leg.
Another situation which has helped deflect any team problems that Sarri did have is UEFA and FIFA’s decision to ban the club from two transfer windows over player irregulaties, Chelsea will appeal, but it has taken the heat from Sarri for the time being.
Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 4 games at home in the league and have won 3 in a row. Their last home game ended in a 2-0 win against Tottenham.
Wolves in 7th are currently the best of the rest but there is a 13 point gap to 6th place Chelsea which tells us a lot about the real gap in league status. Their win over Cardiff last weekend was their first in 3 games. Recent away form has not been good for the club with just 1 win in their past 4 matches and they have won 5 matches overall.
Chelsea: No new injuries for The Blues coming into this game
Wolves: The only player missing will be Ryan Bennett who has a 2 game suspension after picking up 10 yellow cards
Chelsea vs Wolves Head to Head:
In the reverse fixture Wolves beat Chelsea 2-1.
The last time the teams played here in 2012 Chelsea won 6-0.
Chelsea have scored 15 goals against Wolves in 4 meetings at home.
Chelsea vs Wolves Prediction:
Chelsea are in good form and have a lot of positives to take into this game having won 3 matches in a row in all competitions. They usually swipe past Wolves at home but this shouldn’t be the case on Sunday. Instead Chelsea should be able to claim the win in a more professional manner with a low score. Wolves will have their moments too, but at this time Chelsea just look too strong for Wolves. We will also look into the correct score market for smaller stakes but good value.
Chelsea vs Wolves Betting Tips:
Chelsea to be winning at half time at 2.10
Correct Score: Chelsea to win 2-0 or 3-0 at 7.00 and 11.00
