Chelsea V Wolves: Team News And Betting Odds

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard would have been disappointed with the manner of the 5-3 defeat to Liverpool on Wednesday night but he knows that their Champions League hopes still lie in their own hands.

One point will be enough to finish in the top four but they will be going up against a Wolves side who are keen on securing Europa League qualification.

Lampard should have Ross Barkley back after he missed the trip to Anfield due to illness but doubts remain over N’Golo Kante’s fitness, who has taken longer than expected to recover from a hamstring injury.

Billy Gilmour is the only other injury absentee with the midfielder not expected to return until October after undergoing knee surgery.

Wolves have somehow managed to negotiate this intense period of fixtures since the restart without picking up any serious injuries, and head coach Nuno Espirito Santo has a fully fit squad to choose from for Sunday’s game.

The bookmakers have made Chelsea favourites to pick up the three points with Betway pricing them at 7/8. A draw is 14/5 with 888 Sport while a Wolves win is currently 7/2 at BetVictor.

Predicted Score – 2-1 to Chelsea
