Wolves vs Chelsea: Villas-Boas can expect much needed victory

| 01.01.2012

All of Wolves’ last nine home games in all competitions have seen a minimum of three goals scored and there is no logical reason to expect any breaching of this trend with Chelsea the next visitors to Molineux.

Wolves are a bit of a mixed bag at home, but in general they tend to struggle against the best teams.

They are yet to beat a team in the top half of the table this season either home or away and have been beaten at Molineux by Tottenham, Newcastle and Stoke.

Chelsea’s odds are 2/5 to follow suit and they have triumphed in six of the seven Premier League meetings between the pair.

However, Wolves’ one success came at Molineux last season and with Chelsea finding victories hard to come by of late, they may be able to reproduce this win.

It is 11/2 that Wolves beat Chelsea, while they would probably be content with a point, with the draw priced at 3/1.

The high number of goals seen at Molineux has been previously mentioned and 4/6 may prove a big price that over 2.5 goals are scored again.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have won four of their last five meetings with Wolves without conceding.

Therefore, backing Chelsea to win to nil may offer some value at 13/8, while combining the two facts together may make 7/1 a good price that Andre Villas-Boas’ team prevail 3-0.
