Wolves Vs Chelsea Live Premier League For Free
The Wanderers have improved under Julen Lopetegui but a winless three-game run means they are only a point above the relegation zone during the final few months of the season.
Todd Boehly finally gave Graham Potter his marching orders at Stamford Bridge after their defeat to Aston Villa, with Frank Lampard taking over until the end of the season.
Frank Lampard will be back in the Chelsea dugout as the Blues travel to face Wolves on Saturday.
While the club are contacting potential candidates being considering for the permanent job, Lampard has taken interim charge until the end of the season and will look to steady the ship.
There is little now to play for in the Premier League, but with a trip to Real Madrid to come next week in the Champions League, the need for the Blues to find some confidence is an urgent one.
Wolves, meanwhile, are still at risk of being dragged into the relegation scrap so will be fighting for their lives.
Wolves team news
Jonny is still serving a suspension for his red cards in the defeat to Leeds, while Ruben Neves picked up his tenth booking of the season against Nottingham Forest and starts a two-game ban here.
Chiqunho and Sasa Kalajdzic won’t play again this season, though Hwang Hee-chan and Boubacar Traore could make the Wolves squad.
Chelsea team news
Chelsea remain without experienced defenders Thiago Silva and Cesar Azpilicueta, but with Frank Lampard taking over, there could be a formation shift to a back four.
Mason Mount could return to the starting XI – he hasn’t scored since late December – while N’Golo Kante may be included again.
Wolves vs Chelsea score prediction
Wolves looked to have given themselves breathing distance away from the drop zone but three games without a win has them 14th, only a point above 18th-placed Bournemouth.
Chelsea are all over the place, with no hope of Champions League football and a manager hunt akin to a wild goose hunt, but the arrival of fresher – or more familiar – ideas from Lampard may benefit Saturday’s visitors.
If the Blues manage to release the shackles that seemed to hold them back during Graham Potter’s spell, they should have enough attacking quality to leave Molineux with three points.
Prediction: Wolves 1-2 Chelsea
