Wolves vs Chelsea
Wolves will host Chelsea in the 15th round of England Premier League.
The hosts' form dropped down a lot in the last month. In the last 6 PL games they took only 1 point as visitors to Arsenal(lucky point at all) and 5 losses, three of them infront of home crowd against Watford, Tottenham and Huddersfield. They twice lost with 0:2 against Watford(not in best form right now) and Huddersfield(that's a shameful result), while against Totenham they were losing with 0:3 before two penalties scored by Neves and Jimenez in the second part of the 2nd half. In the last round they lost with 2:1 against Cardiff City, another team close to the relegation zone, so we can easily accept the mood in the club is not the best one right now. Wolves will be without Ruben Beves who is suspended and also without Jonny.
Chelsea are trying to catch the leaders Man.City and Liverpool or at least to stay closer as they can to them. It's not an easy task, because City and Liverpool are almost mistakeless during this season, so three points against a team in obvious crisis are required. Chelsea have a direct match against City during the weekend, so they will want to enter this game in a good mood. Still I can not imagine how Chelsea will stop City with Pep ahead, but much easier job like three points against Wolves has to be done successfully. Barkley, Moses, van Ginkel and Alonso are doubtful for this match, but even without them, Chelsea have a long bench full of quality players.
Wolves form is absolutely regressive in comparison with the start of the season when they even surprised City st home after taking a point. Chelsea with Sarri are on the opposite side with 3rd place in the league+5/5 wins in their EL group and obviously qualified for the next round as leaders. I can not see anything different than an away win in this game for Chelsea- maybe minimal, but still a win.
