Chelsea sacked coach Lampard after their recent struggles and they will now try to find a solution elsewhere. They will have a tricky task coming their way on Wednesday, when they will play host to Wolves. Wolves have had a lot of key injuries this season but they did get some reinforcements in the transfer window.
Chelsea (8-6-5) are coming off a 1-3 home win over Luton in the FA Cup, just a few hours after sacking coach Lampard. They have struggled to find consistency this season, and especially lately, winning just 2 of their last eight EPL matches (2-5-1). They have dropped to the 9th spot of the league table with 29 points, five behind the top-four. However, they are really hard to beat at home (4-2-3), losing only to City and Liverpool in 15 home matches in all competitions.
Wolves (6-9-4) also won in their FA Cup match, beating Chorley by 1-0 on the road. However, they have lost their last two EPL matches, by 3-2 against West Brom and by 2-1 against Everton, both at home. Moreover, they are win-less in their last six EPL matches (0-4-2). That means that they have dropped to the 14th spot of the league table with 22 points, 10 above the red line and 11 below the top-five spots. They have not been anything special on the road either (3-5-1), beating only Arsenal in their last six away matches (1-4-1).
Free Soccer Pick:
Wolves beat Chelsea by 1-2 at home earlier in the season, while Chelsea won both matches against Wolves last season (0-2 at home, 5-2 on the road). Moreover, they have been excellent as hosts against Wolves over the years (6-0-1), keeping five clean sheets in the process. Maybe the change in coach did wonders for Chelsea, but I am taking the Over 2.5 Goals here.
