Wolves vs. Chelsea: Premier League – Match Preview

Both Wolves and Chelsea will be looking to put disappointing displays behind them when they meet on Tuesday evening.

Wolves were beaten 1-0 at home by Aston Villa, conceding a 94th minute winner through an Anwar El-Ghazi penalty.

Emi Martinez made numerous excellent saves to earn Villa the win, however Wolves are struggling for goals in the absence of Raul Jimenez.

Chelsea suffered a 1-0 loss away at Everton on Saturday evening, with Gylfi Sigurdsson scoring the winner from the spot.

Mason Mount and Reece James both hit the woodwork, however Chelsea were poor and missed the chance to go top.

Team news
Joao Moutinho was sent off late on in the defeat to Villa and will miss out here.

Wolves could return to a back three having struggled with a back four in their last two defeats.

Christian Pulisic is a doubt having missed the weekend trip to Everton, meaning Timo Werner could continue out wide.

Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi are also set to miss out for Chelsea.

Expected starting XI’s
Wolves (3-4-3): Patricio; Boly, Coady, Saiss; Semedo, Neves, Dendoncker, Marcal; Traore, Podence, Neto
Chelsea (4-3-3): Mendy; James, Zouma, Silva, Chilwell; Kovacic, Kante, Mount; Werner, Giroud, Havertz
