It’s a bit silly to talk about Wolverhampton Wanderers experiencing a Premier League crisis, despite only landing a single point from their previous six encounters.
After all, Wolves only landed promotion from the Championship last season and they still have sixteen points on the board from fourteen top flight matches played, with the fans having seen their team mix it with the big boys.
They famously held Manchester City to a 1-1 draw, while they have gone to Old Trafford and the Emirates and managed to land the same scoreline, although it’s been a bit trickier putting the lesser teams away on a week-to-week basis.
Wolves have recently lost matches against Watford, Brighton, Spurs, Huddersfield and Cardiff, which explains why the Midlands side are as big as 4/1 with BetVictor to claim victory on Wednesday night when Chelsea make the trip to Molineux.
Maurizio Sarri’s team have a healthy return of 31 points from fourteen matches played and they’ll be confident of following up that 2-0 victory over Fulham with another maximum haul against a team whose confidence has clearly been knocked over the past few weeks.
Chelsea have won four of their six away matches this season, with Eden Hazard looking back up to speed during Sunday’s comfortable win over Fulham and the Belgian can prove to be the difference in this encounter.
It appears that Olivier Giroud will be preferred over Alvaro Morata in attack, with Willian and Ruben Loftus-Cheek also pressing for a start and we’re happy enough to back the visitors at a shade of odds-on.
