Wolverhampton Wanderers and Chelsea will lock horns on Christmas Eve (13:00) at the Molineux, as both sides will be looking to bring their fans some festive cheer.

Gary O'Neil's team were beaten 3-0 by West Ham United in their most recent top-flight affair, while the Blues resume Premier League duties on the back of progressing to the Carabao Cup semi-finals.

Wolves vs Chelsea Prediction

  • Double Chance - Wolves or Draw @ 4/5
  • Matheus Cunha to score anytime @ 12/5

Team News

Wolves have been handed a huge boost as Pedro Neto returned to full training this week, while Jose Sa missed the defeat at West Ham with a shoulder injury but should return.

As for the visitors, Enzo Fernandez also lasted just 32 minutes of the win over Newcastle, and Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that the Argentine will miss this game due to a hernia.

Reece James, Wesley Fofana, Carney Chukwuemeka, Trevoh Chalobah, Marc Cucurella, Robert Sanchez and Ben Chilwell are also still missing.

Match Odds

Wolves are 5/2 to win the game, while Chelsea are 19/20 and the draw is 11/4.

Nicolas Jackson is the favourite to score anytime 9/5, and he's 9/2 to break the deadlock and 11/2 to score last.

Double Chance - Wolves or Draw @ 4/5

Wolves could be too strong for an inconsistent Chelsea outfit here.

The Blues have lost their past three away trips after recording back-to-back 4-1 victories on their travels. In addition, Wolves are unbeaten in their last six at Molineux and they can certainly extend that streak here.

However, three of the last five meetings between these sides have finished all-square and there are just three points between the sides, suggesting a draw is just as likely as a home victory.

Matheus Cunha to score anytime @ 12/5

No Wolves player is averaging more shots per game than Matheus Cunha, with his 2.4 per match 0.6 higher than next-best Pedro Neto, who has returned to full training but remains a doubt for this fixture.

The Brazilian has scored three goals in his last five games, including Wanderers’ last home match, so he's a decent option to get on the scoresheet against Chelsea.
