Both sides come into this midweek clash on the back of narrow defeats over the weekend, where Chelsea went down 1-0 to Everton at Goodison Park.

Wolves were beaten by Aston Villa by the same score line at the Molineux, leaving them in 13th place with 17 points, following back to back defeats.

The visitors were dislodged from third place but are still in the top five with 22 points from 12 games.

What time is Wolves vs Chelsea?

Wolves vs Chelsea team news

Veteran Portuguese midfielder Joao Moutinho is the most notable absentee from the Wolves line-up after he was sent off late against Villa.

Willy Boly who was an unused substitute over the weekend is expected to return to the starting XI.

Talisman Raul Jimenez is still ruled out indefinitely after fracturing his skull against Arsenal last month.

For Frank Lampard’s side, Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi are all sidelined.

Olivier Giroud should get the nod ahead of Tammy Abraham with Timo Werner and Mason Mount offering support.

Wolves vs Chelsea head to head

Wolves have only managed two wins against the blues in 14 meetings, with only one other game resulting in a draw.

Chelsea have been victorious on 11 occasions, including a 2-0 win the last time these sides faced each other back in July.

Wolves vs Chelsea current form

Wolves have been on a wretched run of form that has seen them only manage one win in their last 5 matches, a hard fought 2-1 away victory against Arsenal.

This past weekend’s defeat was only Chelsea’s first in their last 15 matches in all competitions, giving them an edge over their hosts.

Wolves vs Chelsea prediction

Judging by the fact that Wolves have not beaten Chelsea in two years and their individual current form, I expect Lampard’s side to bag all three points.

Despite it not being an easy or free-scoring encounter, Chelsea have enough in them to grind out a narrow victory.
