Wolves vs Chelsea: Preview, Free tip & Prediction
The eighteenth round of the top English competition will feature a duel between home side Wolves, who welcome visitors from London to their stadium.
Basic information, news and team form
Wolves in the summer had to replace the departing manager Nuno Espirito Santo, who moved to north London to Tottenham. The Portuguese manager, however, didn't last long on the Tottenham bench, and a few weeks ago he was sacked and replaced by Italian manager Antonio Conte. If Nuno had known he wouldn't last half a year on the Tottenham bench he probably would never have left Wolves. Espirito Santo has been replaced on the Wolves bench by another Portuguese coach, namely Bruno Lage. Wolves under the new coach didn't enter the new season in the best way, and for a long time they were staggering around the last ranks, but in the last matches Bruno Lage's charges started to perform better, and mainly thanks to the top defensive performance, they started to collect points, which brought Wolves to the eighth place. From the last fourteen games in the Premier League, Wolves have won seven, which is the fifth-best result since September 11. Moreover, the Wolves are getting almost no goals in away games in the last six away games they have received only two goals. Chelsea, on the other hand, has made a great start to the new season, as they managed to win the European Super Cup after winning the Champions League, and have long dominated the top of the table in the English top flight. In recent weeks, however, Chelsea's squad has been plagued by injuries, and more and more key players in the starting eleven are starting to struggle. Chelsea had the best defence in the league, but in the last 6 games in all competitions, they have not been able to keep a clean sheet. In the premier league in the last 5 games, Chelsea has received an astronomical 9 goals, far more than Thomas Tuchel's charges have received in all the games before. Thomas Tuchel himself admitted at the last press conference that the team is not at its best, and needs to pick itself up and get back to where it rightfully belongs.
Betdoin's view of the game
Chelsea enters this match as the odds-on favourites at 1.62. A draw is available with the bookmakers at odds of 3.95, and if you want to back the home side to win, that is available at odds of 6.40. The goal line for this match is set at Over 2. Our clever Betdoin algorithm sees the value for this match mainly in the under bets. Both teams have a problem with the attacking phase of the game, and Chelsea and others will miss their two main attacking drivers in the form of Lukaku and Werner, moreover, Thomas Tuchel will surely want to improve the defensive part of his charges' game, and we can expect a more defensive approach.
Absentees and estimated line-ups
Wolves will have to do without the pair of Ryan Ait- Nouri and Hwang Hee-Chan, who were injured in the last game against Brighton. Chelsea will miss Lukaku, Werner and Odoi, while Kai Havertz is also a doubtful starter. There has also been speculation in recent days that the duo of Jorghinho and Loftus Cheek was injured in the last game, and their start is also questionable.
