Frank Lampard has not had everything his own way since taking over as manager at the club where he achieved so much as a player. Three points here would make his day.
Wolves took to the Premier League instantly last season and thoroughly deserved their Europa League spot. But this campaign has not started off quite as brightly with Nuno Espirito Santo still looking to get a first win.
WOLVES TO WIN
Chelsea lost 4-0 at Old Trafford on the first day of the season but the scoreline flattered the hosts. Since then Chelsea – and Tammy Abraham in particular – have been able to find the net regularly and both teams should get on the score sheet here and the best online bookies think so too.
BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
It has been a frustrating opening period of the season for Wolves – especially considering how they fared last year. There is a feeling that it is only a matter of time before they get back in the routine however – and that should start with a victory at home against Chelsea. The visitors could well score however.
WOLVES TO WIN AND BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
Head to Head
Wolves came from behind to win at Molineux last season – but Chelsea have enjoyed the vast majority of games between these sides over the past 25 years.
Wolves to win
Wolves scared a fair number of teams last season, playing an exciting style of football that took the game to their opponents and ended up picking up an impressive number of victories over some of the big teams in the division. It hasn’t been quite the same this season but that might all change here.
