Wolves are desperate to win this match but they will be short on confidence to take on a team that has just regained third spot in the Premier League table. Chelsea have played solid football in the last two games, while Wolves are still uncertain in a number of positions. The lack of impact going forward from Nuno’s team is likely to keep Chelsea untroubled at the back. The home team may try to come out with a decent game, but they will be stifled by the opposition’s quality. Our preview would go with a win for Chelsea.

Correct Score odds
Chelsea have been able to score 30 goals in the league campaign and this is a figure bettered only by Arsenal (32) and Manchester City (43) this season. Chelsea also have a strong defensive record with the team conceding more than the duo. Wolves have struggled for goals and they have also defensively been uncertain on a number of occasions of late. Our correct score prediction would opt for a Chelsea 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The Chelsea outfit has been able to keep three clean sheets in the last four away games, while scoring goals has been a problem for Wolves throughout the campaign. Wolves’ ability to bring about a threat going forward is largely down to counter-attacks. There may be opportunities for the same due to Chelsea’s possession-style game, but our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Alvaro Morata is expected to be recalled back to the starting line-up after being placed on the bench against Fulham. Morata did make an impression after coming on as a substitute but he missed a sitter from just a few yards outside the goal. Even though he is clearly a confidence player, our first goalscorer prediction expects Morata to offer impact in this match.
