Betting tips for Wolves vs Chelsea 05.12.2018
The Premier League does not stop at this stage, with the 15th round playing out midweek this week. Wolverhampton gets another big one, this time Chelsea, and the expectation is great to see if the wolves will remain highly competitive with maximum demand. The setback is not good for Nuno Espirito Santo's side who lost again this time at Cardiff (2-1). Chelsea received and beat Fulham by (2-0), meeting again with the triumphs, two days later.
Wolverhampton are still struggling, and with their defeat in Wales, the number of matches has gone up to six without any success. Against Cardiff, the team of Nuno Espírito Santo advanced on the scoreboard, but once again came up the defensive permeability, and this has cost points. Wolverhampton are 12th with 16 points but had 15 on 6 October, so they only scored 1 point in almost two months.
These are the accounts that surely worry the wolves, but who will try to keep the only image they have left since the beginning of the Premier League. Wolverhampton have been a team that has responded in games of high difficulty, especially against the big ones. This tie drew 1-1 with Manchester City (1-1), then Manchester United (at Old Trafford) (1-1), and has just drawn 1-1 at Arsenal.
Much of Wolverhampton's success will be to regain defensive consistency. Remember victories where this was preponderant. In the field of Crystal Palace (0-1), on the road to West Ham (0-1), and even in the reception to Southampton (2-0) or Burnley (1-0).
Chlesea have beaten Fulham, now led by charismatic Claudio Ranieri, and have returned to winning ways. In the previous two rounds, the blues had added just 1 point after a 1-1 draw with Everton, followed by a London derby defeat by Tottenham (3-1). In those two games saw a "break" of the team commanded by Sarri, and in some moments the team lost some clarity. even from the tactical point of view, where it has shown itself very competent.
In the game with Fulham he returned to the "normal", but this game will present greater difficulties, taking into account the preference that Wolverhampton has in the exploration of the granted spaces. Chelsea are 3rd place with 31 points, but already 5 to Liverpool and 7 of the leading Manchester City. The two rounds mentioned have made this distance to the reds, and currently show that Livepool is even the 2nd strongest team in the race.
Even so, the quality of the squad of the blues gives another guarantee, and will play with the indices of confidence much higher than your opponent. It is Chelsea who have to bear the cost of the game, and that will be the biggest challenge for the London team, with Wolverhampton "threatening" to stumble another big in the Premier League.
The only doubt that persists for this game is to see if Wolverhampton are still able to "dunk" in the big clubs, as it has done with Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal. The truth is that the moment of the wolves is worrying, and for this game can not count on one of its most influential players, Rúben Neves who is the "midfield engine". The way you launch the attack, but also how you defend and how you manage the rhythms of the game is really difficult to replace. In addition, the wolves have a team that has something similar, ie they are excellent at counter attack, so Hazard, Morata, Willian or Pedro are able to decide the game at any time.
