Punters can expect one thing and one thing only when Wolves host Chelsea on Saturday – goals and lots of them. Wolves are known for playing their best football against the big clubs and Lampard’s Chelsea score a lot of goals and concede even more.
Chelsea’s Leaky Defence
Chelsea have been really poor defensively this season and Frank Lampard’s men have conceded 9 goals in only 4 competitive matches.
Chelsea’s defenders look like a disjointed band of individuals and each of them carries a problem of his own. Chelsea’s captain, Cesar Azpillicueta is playing in the worst form of his life and Chelsea fans cannot wait for academy product Reece James to return to fitness so that he can create proper competition at right back. In addition, both of Chelsea’s current first choice centre backs, Zouma and Christensen look bereft of confidence, while first choice left back, Emerson, got injured while on international duty with Italy so it is unclear whether he will start.
Tammy Abraham to Score
One thing that Chelsea shouldn’t worry about though is scoring goals. In Tammy Abraham they have a striker who looks like a young Didier Drogba and who has grown through the academy ranks.
That is always a good start if you want to be a successful striker at Chelsea and the fact that Abraham has scored four in the last two games speaks volumes about his ability to be in the right place at the right time.
Backing him to score anytime against Wolves comes with great odds of 2.75. Backing him to score a brace or more, like he did in his last two matches, comes with even better odds of 10.
Both Teams to Score
Another good bet for this match is both teams to score. It comes with odds of 1.70 and it is bound to come as both Chelsea and Wolves will be going for a win in this match. Both of these teams started the season worse than they anticipated and now the gloves will be off and they will try to attack and outscore their opponents in each of their coming matches.
