The football players of Nuno haven’t won in 6 matches, having gained for this time only one point by means of draws with Arsenal (1:1) – away match. By and large the defense is guilty of this fact that only in 33% of cases didn’t miss at least twice.
Two goals were scored to Wolverhampton in matches with underdogs Huddersfield (0:2) and Cardiff (1:2). Total xG of rivals of these matches was only 1.72, but realization was at the highest level.
Three goals and 4 assistant points have been gained by the Mexican forward Raul Jiménez. The truth is that the player for already three rounds in a row is on short rations, as well as in the national team he couldn’t score a goal to Argentina (0:2).
One of the key midfielders of team Rubén Neves will miss the future match because of disqualification.
After the draw with Everton (0:0) and defeat from Tottenham (1:3), the football players of Sarri have partially rehabilitated in home matches against PAOK (4:0) and Fulham (2:0). In the Eurocup match Olivier Giroud has scored a double that gave him the chance to shine against the Cottagers. But the Frenchman has spent unsuccessful EPL match and was substituted.
The most fruitful goal scorer of Chelsea is still Eden Hazard who has scored seven goals and in five cases he has assisted his team mates. In frames of the London derby the Belgian was also one of the best players but his teammate in the attacking wing Pedro has spent the match even more successfully. The Spaniard, besides the goal, was the author of 3 shots on target (100%), two successful tackling and 87% accuracy of assists.
Victor Moses who has been injured for a long time already has got a company – Ross Barkley.

Bookmaker coefficients on the match Wolverhampton vs Chelsea
Wolverhampton to win – odds 5.18;
Draw – odds 3.73;
Chelsea to win – odds 1.74
In addition, Chelsea is now stronger than the rival in realization of the moments.
Their attacking wings have the impressive form from the very first minutes, regardless of what lineup is playing.
Without Neves the Wolves will hardly create xG with the same efficiency as in a number of the last matches therefore there is no sense to believe that they will gain the points.
