Betting Tip: Both Teams to Score
This will be the first Blues game since the sacking of Frank Lampard and the response of the players will be an interesting one given his status at the club. Thomas Tuchel has come in as head coach with a hope that he gets a greater tune out of German duo Timo Werner and Kai Havertz but that may take time.
Wolves have really struggled since losing Raul Jimenez to injury. He’s a key cog in their rigid system and their lack of attacking threat without him has cost the Old Gold results. It doesn’t help that their defence has been leaky of late, even Chorley gave them a few scares in the FA Cup.
With so many unknowns here it’s hard to find a solid angle in, but given Chelsea are likely to want to put on a show for their new boss, it could play into Wolves’ hands on the break and both teams to score looks a fine price at even-money.
Chelsea vs Wolves Odds
Following the shock departure of Frank Lampard the bookies still favour Chelsea to win this one, with odds of 7/10.
