Wolves vs Chelsea prediction: 1-2 away win
Chelsea were left frustrated at Goodison Park, but were not far off a result as chances didn’t quite fall their way. You’d expect the Blues to be more prolific this time around, and face an inconsistent Wolves side who are lacking key forward Raul Jimenez.
Date, kick-off time and venue
Wolves vs Chelsea is scheduled for a 6pm GMT kick-off on Tuesday, December 15, 2020.
The game will be played at Molineux.
