Chelsea play host to Fulham at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening, and it’s an important game for the Blues, as well as Thomas Tuchel who’s managing the club for his first game in the Chelsea dugout.

Chelsea were beaten by Wolves 2-1 away at the Molineux Stadium just last month, but things look different this time around, with the away team in poor form of late.

Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen is expecting to see a Chelsea victory, albeit with a narrow home win over the visitors at the Bridge.

Writing in his column for BetVictor, Owen said: “Unfortunately, Frank Lampard’s time at Chelsea came to an end on Monday morning.

“Football can be a cruel business and the Chelsea players will have to adapt quickly as Wolves travel to the Bridge.

“The visitors can cause most sides problems. However, they’ve not been the same since talisman Raul Jimenez was side-lined with his terrible head injury.

“That said, I still think Wolves have enough to get on the scoresheet, but I think we could see a reaction from the Chelsea players and if we do, I reckon they’ll have enough to win.”

Owen is predicting a 2-1 win for Chelsea.
