The Blues will be hoping to close the gap on Manchester City as they travel to Molineux to face Nuno Espirito Santo’s struggling side. Chelsea travel to Wolves on Wednesday night hoping to close the gap on Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.
The Blues have lost only once in the league this season and they will have this game marked down as a match they should win as they face a struggling side.Wolves’ good start to the season sees them in midtable, but their form of late is that of a relegation-threatened team.
Wolves must make do without midfielder Ruben Neves, who serves a one-match ban after accumulating five yellow cards. Chelsea full-back Marcos Alonso (back) and Mateo Kovacic (ankle) are expected to recover from injuries sustained in the west London derby.

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Chelsea Stats:
- Wolves have lost seven of their eight Premier League matches against Chelsea, winning only in January 2011 at Molineux.
- Wolves’ last seven PL home goals have been scored after half-time. Their last first-half strike came on the opening weekend against Everton, with Ruben Neves the scorer.
- Chelsea have scored at least twice in all seven of their PL victories against Wolves, netting 23 goals in total.
- Eden Hazard has been directly involved in 12 PL goals this season, with seven strikes and five assists. Only Raheem Sterling has contributed more, with 14.
Bouncing back on Wednesday evening against Chelsea will be a brutally tough task for Nuno Espirito Santo and his men. The Portuguese manager must be frustrated to know his troops lost back-to-back outings to the likes of Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City just after they held Arsenal to a 1-1 draw at Emirates.
The trip to Molineux should thus give Chelsea a nice opportunity to keep pace on top three sides in the league with a three-pointer in West Midlands. They took just a single point from recent league games with Everton (0-0 draw) and Tottenham (3-1 loss). The away win is well worth backing at the odds of 1.83, while you will get the same odds for Chelsea to net two or more goals on the night.
