Chelsea – Wolves
Chelsea hosts Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Stamford Bridge in a game from the 36th round of the Premier League. Let’s see what we can tell you about this fixture in our soccer predictions daily.
Chelsea’s primary goal until the end of the season remains a Top 4 finish. The Londoners are currently third in the standings with 66 points which puts them 5 points ahead of the 5th Tottenham. This means that Thomas Tuchel’s team is pretty close to achieving this goal.
The Blues will make an effort to get up after their 0-1 defeat from Everton’s hands in the previous round. Tuchel’s boys were favorites at the Goodison Park, but Richarlison’s goal in the beginning of the second half was enough for the hosts to win. After the break Tuchel made some changes, but the inclusion of Kovacic, Pulisic and Ziyech didn’t help much.
It seems that Romelu Lukaku’s days at Chelsea are numbered. The Belgian striker didn’t play a single minute against Everton and clearly Thomas Tuchel doesn’t want him in the team anymore. Lukaku is linked with a return to Italy while Barcelona is another option for him.
Wolves are currently 8th in the league standings but they could eventually beat West Ham for the 7th place – they are three points behind. The main problem is their form at the moment – Wanderers lost their last three matches in the Prem.
In the previous round Bruno Lage’s team made a horrible performance against Brighton & Hove Albion at home – the game ended with a 3-0 win for the visitors. That’s exactly the type of performances Wolves would like to avoid in the remaining matches.
That’s the soccer predictions daily for the Premier League clash between Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday. The visitors are in a pretty bad shape at the moment which makes Chelsea favorites. Let’s see.
