our main tip:
Under 3.5 Goals

Wolverhampton vs Chelsea prediction

Wolverhampton had no answers at West Ham last time out as the Hammers ran out 3-0 winners with Lucas Paquetá bagging a hattrick of assists. That loss left the Wolves still stuck in the bottom half of the table (13th place) but that’s still way better than where they were after a horrible start to the season that led to the termination of Julen Lopetegui’s contract. Gary O’Neil took over when they were in shambles and to his credit he has managed to steer them off the relegation zone with some eye-catching performances including home wins over Man City and Tottenham and away wins at Everton and Bournemouth. They are going through a rough patch at the moment though with just 1 win in their last 5 matches and Gary will be hoping to turn the tide here.

Chelsea have blown hot and cold this season. After back-to-back losses to Manchester United and Everton, they have won two on the trot – a league win over Sheffield at the weekend and a midweek EPL Cup 1/4 final win over Newcastle on post-match penalties after both teams were deadlocked at 1-1 at the end of regulation period. Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping to build on a consistent run through this festive period as they try to challenge for European football slots for the remainder of the season.

This has been a dead rubber fixture over the last few years. Only 2 of their last 10 H2H Premier League matches have had at least 4 goals scored. Both teams have also been struggling to find the back of the net in their recent matches. As such, we are going for Under 3.5 Goals to be scored here as our main Wolverhampton vs Chelsea prediction for this match

Prediction 3: Over 3.5 Bookings

As you would expect for cagey encounters, physicality, and cynical challenges are the norm. The last meeting between them witnessed 7 bookings!

With this context, we are backing this match to have at least 4 bookings as our final Wolves vs Chelsea prediction here
