Chelsea v Wolves: Goals expected as pressure mounts

Wolves last five matches in all competitions have produced more than 2.5 goals

Chelsea host Wolves at Stamford Bridge this Saturday afternoon with both managers under fire and desperately seeking a win. Chelsea currently sit fifth in the table and they are 12 points behind current leaders Man City. Wolves find themselves languishing in 17th place, only two points above the relegation zone. With so much on the line we should hopefully see both teams giving it a real go, which should see this game produce quite a few goals, especially given each side’s defensive frailties of late.

Chelsea’s only new injury concern is that of Ashley Cole who has picked up an ankle injury and faces a late fitness test. Should he fail the fitness test expect to see Jose Bosingwa taking his place. Wolves have a few players missing for this one with both Kevin Foley and Richard Stearman out with injuries and, perhaps more importantly, Stephen Hunt and Jamie O’Hara missing through suspension.

Each side has been involved in a lot of games this season that has produced many goals, and that is where our selection will come from. Out of Chelsea’s 12 league games this season, nine of them have produced more than 2.5 goals and all six of their home games have produced the same. From Wolves’ 12 league matches this season, eight of them have produced more than 2.5 goals and four of their six away matches have also seen a goal tally of greater than 2.5. In fact Wolves last five matches in all competitions have also produced more than 2.5 goals. Another stat that stands out is both sides are not finishing their games well as they have both shipped their largest amount of goals between the 76th and 90th minutes. With so much on the line this match should be no different.
