Former Premier League striker Michael Owen has backed Chelsea to return to winning ways when the Blues face Wolves later today at Molineux Stadium.

“With three defeats in four games, it looks like Wolves’ lack of firepower is finally catching up on them,” Owen told BetVictor.

“Replacing Diogo Jota was always going to be difficult and when you add that to the long term absence of Raul Jimenez, it’s no surprise goals have dried up.

“They played nice football at times against Aston Villa, however, they came away with nothing after conceding a late penalty and subsequent goal.

“Chelsea were odds-on favourites to beat Everton on Saturday night. The game itself provided us with a stark reminder of how nothing is a given in the Premier League as the Toffees took all three points.

“That would’ve been a blow to Chelsea. They certainly had the wind in their sails after a run of impressive results and Frank Lampard will want to get three points on the board here to immediately bounce back.

“Molineux is a tough place to go for any side, however, the lack of goals in this Wolves side is a huge concern. Until the problem is rectified, I think they may struggle.

“Chelsea come here with an abundance of firepower, and I can see the Blues taking full advantage on the road.”
