‘This is a big game for Chelsea’ — Michael Owen gives prediction for Wolves vs Chelsea clash

Chelsea’s title ambition has been called into question after some disappointing results from the Blues.

Recent slump has seen the Blues lose to West Ham, struggle to beat Watford and Leeds United and also played out a draw against Everton.

Pundit Michael Owen has admitted it would be a difficult game for Chelsea this weekend, and he’s backing a narrow 1-0 win for Thomas Tuchel’s side.

“Wolves continue to look a really solid outfit. Defensively they are superb, comfortably the best defence outside the top three. If they can just put a few more chances away, they’ll definitely be in the hunt for the top six,” Owen said in his prediction for BetVictor.

“This is a big game for Chelsea after what was a very disappointing draw against Everton on Thursday. The pressure is now on them after dropping those points.

“I can’t see this being high scoring. Two of the league’s best defences are on show here, so I can see the odd goal deciding this. I’m going for 1-0 to Chelsea.”
