Chelsea vs Wolves Prediction and Betting Preview 26 July 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-0
Chelsea vs Wolves PredictionPrior to the start of the season, Chelsea had a number of off-field issues to battle with – ones that were bound to bring the club down to bare bones. Having breached Financial Fair Play regulations, the Blues were barred from making any signings during the summer.
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 38
Venue: Stamford Bridge (London)
As if that was not enough punishment for Chelsea, they were raided off their best player as Real Madrid made a swoop for Belgian star Eden Hazard. With the left winger exiting Stamford Bridge, the Blues were unable to bring in any replacements, no thanks to their transfer ban.

Also, they had a new juvenile head coach in Frank Lampard – the man that was set to oversee a potentially disastrous campaign for Chelsea. However, despite all odds, the Blues have managed to remain at the top, pulling off impressive results and performances with every game-week.

Having spent much of the season in the top-four, keeping a touching distance off then fifth-placed Manchester United, Chelsea remained huge favorites to finish in the Champions League places. Unfortunately, a recent United resurgence has threatened to knock the Blues off their perch. 

With the Premier League coming to a close this Sunday, Chelsea will be looking to secure a positive result over Wolves to book a ticket to next season’s edition of the CL.

It has not exactly been the best of campaigns for the Blues with the former champions struggling to assert their dominance in the league. However, the club supporters wouldn’t care so much about these troubles if they manage to finish among the top-four mix at the end of the season.

Following Man United’s one-all draw against the Hammers, Chelsea needed to secure victory over newly-crowned champions Liverpool to regain third spot on the log. Headed into the game in high-spirits, the Pensioners had enough ammunitions to give the European champions a run for their money.

Outclassed in every single department on the pitch, Chelsea were easily dispatched in a seven-goal thriller at Anfield. Looking to run away with the win at some points, the Blues threatened to make some sort of comeback. However, the Reds held on to secure a huge 5-3 victory.

Wolves, on the other hand, were looking to retain sixth-spot on the standings to book a ticket to the Europa League when they took on Crystal Palace few days ago. Always favorites to clinch maximum points, the Wanderers duly delivered the goods.

Dominating proceedings right from kickoff, their efforts yielded fruits in the 41st minute when Podence unleashed a powerful strike that ended up in the back of the net. Wolves made sure of the win shortly after the restart through Castro as they posted a 2-0 win on the board.

For this fixture, no particular side can be picked out as clear favorites given both teams are equally matched and have a lot to play for here. While Chelsea are gunning for a top-four finish, Wolves are seeking to make it into the group phases of the Europa League.

A draw or win for the hosts will be enough to get them into the Champions League, regardless of results elsewhere. However, Wolves will need nothing but victory to guarantee a top-six finish as they continue to entertain stiff competition from Tottenham.

Injured or Suspended Players

Chelsea: Billy Gilmour, Ethan Ampadu and Abdul Rahman Baba.

Chelsea vs Wolves Predictions

This game has all the makings of a final. Both sides will be desperate for victory to achieve their respective end-of-season ambitions. Since the league restart, the Blues have been playing in fits and starts, failing to show any sort of consistency.

Meanwhile, the Wanderers have shown their credentials against the Premier League juggernauts this season. They are a top side capable of troubling any opposition on their day. I’m pretty confident of the visitors carrying the day.
