Chelsea – Tuchel to stamp out complacency?

If they’re not careful, Thomas Tuchel and his players could find themselves genuinely having to scrap to finish in the Premier League’s top four. Last week’s 1-0 loss away to struggling Everton was their third in six games (W2 L1), which is as many losses as they had sustained in their first 28 league games of this season, as what was once the league’s most reliable backline for clean sheets suddenly looks vulnerable.

It leaves them in fourth but only three points better off than Arsenal, who are two clear of Tottenham. Complacency has undoubtedly crept into performances. However, with the gap to those beneath them shortening, expect intensity levels to rise soon enough. Particularly with an FA Cup final against Liverpool around the corner – and on current form, no Chelsea player is secured of their starting berth for that.

Key Stat: Having kept four clean sheets in five Premier League games, Chelsea have managed only two shutouts in their last six top-flight fixtures. Although the Blues did keep one in their most recent outing at home, beating West Ham 1-0.

Wolves – Return to Europe looking increasingly unlikely?

All of a sudden, after three successive defeats to Brighton, Burnley, Newcastle, a place in Europe next season looks to be in real jeopardy. Last week’s performance in the 3-0 home loss to Brighton was as bad it gets, beaten to nil for the third game running having last losing four in a row without scoring in 1970. It left Bruno Lage lamenting on what he felt was the worst display of his managerial tenure with the club.

Unfortunately it doesn’t get any easier from here on in, with three of their final four games against the current three best sides in the division. While that does begin with a trip to an admittedly out of sorts Chelsea, an ominous statistic is that Wanderers have failed to score on six of seven prior visits to Stamford Bridge. Meanwhile, only bottom side Norwich have failed to score in more top-flight matches this season.

Key Stat: There hasn’t been a drawn game involving Wolves since Christmas, with Bruno Lage’s team winning eight and losing eight since a goalless draw at Molineux in the reverse fixture against Chelsea on 19 December.

Chelsea Vs Wolves Betting Advice

Standards have slipped in both dressing rooms. For Chelsea, it is two wins in their last six Premier League games (D1 L3). For Wolves, four defeats in five (W1) having lost the last three in a row without scoring. But with the quality at Thomas Tuchel’s disposal, and with several auditioning for a starting role in the FA Cup final, one would expect last season’s European champions to raise those standards soon enough.


Chelsea Vs Wolves – Key Facts:

  • Wolves, who have lost four of their last six Premier League games, last won away from home in the league against Chelsea in 1979 (D3 L5 since then).
  • Chelsea aren’t in the best of shapes themselves, though. The Blues have suffered three defeats across their last six league encounters (W2 D1), which includes losing two of the last three here at Stamford Bridge.
  • These teams lead the entire league when it comes to the percentage (both 66%) of goals they concede in the second half of matches: Chelsea shipping 20 of 29 after the half-time interval and Wolves 22 of 32.


Christian Pulisic sparred Chelsea a third successive winless outing at Stamford Bridge when the American struck late to condemn West Ham to a 1-0 loss last time out in West London. Draw/Chelsea in the HT/FT betting landed on that occasion and it is interesting to note that these two teams lead the way when it comes to the percentage of goals they’ve conceded this season in the second-half of matches.
