Chelsea’s first game after the international break is an away trip to the Molineux Stadium on Saturday afternoon to face Wolves.
The last time the Blues travelled to the Molineux, Chelsea were beaten 2-1 under former boss Maurizio Sarri, and in fact Chelsea couldn’t find a win against Wolves last season as the home leg at Stamford Bridge ended in a 1-1 draw.
Wolves were known to be giant killers last season, and they’ve shown that it won’t be any different this season after holding Manchester United down to a 1-1 draw and Leicester City to a goalless draw. Only Everton have beaten them this season, and it was a hard fought 3-2 victory.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is well aware of the threat of Nuno Santo Espirito’s side and has admitted that Wolves will be a hard nut to crack.
He said: “Wolves are a very good team, got a lot of credit last year and a good way of playing. Three at the back and very good going forward. They defend well and it’s a difficult atmosphere in the stadium.
“I am very impressed by Nuno, looking from the outside and the way that he shows himself in the media and the unity they have. They have a style they believe in and I like the way he operates.”
Although Wolves are 17th on the table with three points after failing to get a win so far this season, drawing three games and losing one, many pundits are tipping them to beat Chelsea on Saturday.
Do you think Frank Lampard’s side can get the win at the Molineux Stadium?
