Wolves – Chelsea prediction
Wolves have been feast or famine in terms of chance production this season, falling below 1.0 xG seven times. Chelsea doesn’t concede many chances and Timo Werner is among several players threatening to break out. Don’t anticipate a blowout, but the Blues should have enough quality to get a quality away win. Wolves 1-2 Chelsea.
