Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction vs Wolves 

Share

It had looked like Chelsea had a stranglehold on the third spot in the table, but lately they have suffered a significant drop in form. It also had looked like Wolverhampton Wanderers were going to contend for a UEFA Conference League berth, but they have suffered a massive drop in form.

Losers of three straight and four of their last five, it will be a challenge to surpass West Ham United for that slot now.

Wolves haven’t scored in over 330 minutes, and that three game skid has resulted in a 5-0 aggregate against the likes of Newcastle, Burnley, and Brighton.
