Wolverhampton vs. Chelsea / Premier League – This duel in the 15th round of Premier League has its big favourite, and it is of course the team of Chelsea. This is clearly shown on the table, because Wolverhampton is in the lower part of the table with 12 points less than Chelsea, which is in third place. Also the current form in the host team is very bad and they played six championship matches without a win with just one draw. Chelsea has only lost once in all the competitions this season. Last time, these teams met was in the FA Cup last year, when Chelsea celebrated with 2-0.
Wolverhampton vs. Chelsea begins 05.12.2018 at 20:45 CET
Wolverhampton has had their period this season when they looked invincible and after a series of six matches without defeat, they were excellently placed on the table. They are now in the negative period, in which they did not defeat anyone for six rounds. An even bigger problem is that they only played one draw in that period. It was a good draw with Arsenal as guests, but has only brought them one point so they are still dropping on the table.
Prior to the mentioned draw in London, they lost three games, followed by two more particularly painful. They played against the objectively weaker rivals and they should not have lost to Huddersfield at home and Cardiff as guests. In Cardiff they even had a lead with 1-0, but it was not enough again. Midfielder Neves got the yellow card, so he will not be able to perform in this match and Jonny is still injured.
Probable lineups Wolverhampton: Patricio – Bennett, Coady, Boly – Doherty, Moutinho, Gibbs-White, Vinagre – Jota, Bonatini, Cavaleiro
Chelsea is not going through major oscillations this season and they were not lower than the fourth place at any moment. They were even the leaders on the table at one point after they celebrated in the first five rounds. Later they played some unresolved results, but they did not lose until the last round. Their first defeat was against Tottenham with 3-1 and they were really outplayed in that match. They have returned to their winning habits in the last round, when they routinely defeated Fulham with 2-0. They had a lead at the very beginning of the match and then resolved all dilemmas when they scored the second goal.
It should be said that Chelsea is also playing in Europa League and they have achieved all five victories so far, which is very commendable, although they are really absolute favourites in the group. Coach Sarri has made two changes in the composition after Tottenham, not in defence but in the attack. Willian and Morata ended up on the bench, and Pedro and Giroud played instead. The first one has scored the leading goal against Fulham, so that decision was obviously good. Now Emerson could be on the left side, and Loftus-Cheek in midfield instead of Kovacic.
Probable lineups Chelsea: Arrizabalaga – Azpilicueta, Rudiger, D.Luiz, Emerson – Kante, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek – Pedro, Giroud, E.Hazard
Wolverhampton vs. Chelsea PICK
Wolverhampton is in a major crisis, and Chelsea is not a good opportunity for them to break that series of bad results. The guests are in a better rhythm despite the first defeat two rounds ago, but their opponent was much stronger then. Chelsea should not have a problem to win this match.
