Chelsea vs Wolverhampton 27.01.2021
Both Chelsea and Wolves go into this game in dire need of a win to arrest their slump in the league. The Londoners have only two wins in their last eight Premier League games. This run of unimpressive results have left Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard under immense pressure to turn things around at the club.
Wolverhampton Wanderers have not fared any better themselves. They have only one win from their last eight league games and firmly rooted in 14th position. Nuno Espirito Santo have tweaked his team a number of times already this season, but the results have not been desirable so far.
This will be a difficult game for both sides who are desperately in need of a win to calm frayed nerves.
Instead of calling an outright win for any of the teams, we are therefore backing Over 2.5 goals to be recorded in the game.
