Chelsea vs WolvesStamford Bridge Stadium3:00pm
It is Chelsea’s penultimate game at home and it is also their first game since the announcement of their new owners, officially drawing the curtain on the reigns of Roman Abramovic and ushering in a new regime of American, Todd Boehly.
For Wolves, it’s been a strange fall from grace and if care is not taken, their good works all season long could end up in a disappointing finish as they’re now in danger of not only missing out from Europe totally, they’re also at risk of crashing out of the top ten completely.
Chelsea are also in some danger of sort but it is still very much in their own hands. Arsenal could win this weekend and heap pressure on the Blues for third place should Wolves pick a point or more at Stamford Bridge in this fixture.
Brighton beat Wolves silly last weekend, three goals conceded by Bruno Lage’s side without replies and that added to the growing list of poor results that Wolves have managed in recent game weeks, for a team that was pushing for top four at some points, this is shameful to say the least.
Chelsea must win here, not for the new owners but for the fans that have been through hell since the turn of the year; it is time for the club to reward them on the pitch and a win against the visitors won’t be too much to ask for.
There’s so much to ask about the 100m man, Romelu Lukaku hasn’t lived up to the hype and conversations around is future would fill most of the summer stories soon but who can they call on to bring them joy on the pitch in his absence?
Mason Mount and Kai Havertz have stepped up, Reece James has been the best thing to happen to them from the wingback and the midfield has been boosted with the return of Matteo Kovacic, it might be an evening too long for Wolves if Chelsea come to the party.
Crazy as it may sound, Wolves are unbeaten against Chelsea in their last three games with two goalless draws and a win at the Molineux, Chelsea will look to be fourth time lucky with this game of huge significance.
