Betting & Match Odds
Chelsea are the odds-on favourites to prevail and are priced at 11/20 with bet365. Wolves are meanwhile available at 6/1 while a draw is 16/5.
With a comfortable 3-0 win over Dynamo Kyiv delivered in midweek, Chelsea will be looking to make it two wins on the trot at Stamford Bridge as they welcome Wolves to London.
The Blues have gone unbeaten since they lost on penalties in the Carabao Cup final, with Maurizio Sarri looking to have stamped his authority back on a team said to have been in turmoil since the new year.
Their sizeable win in the Europa League on Thursday has helped them to put one foot into the quarter-finals, their only chance of silverware this season.
At home, however, domestic concerns are currently focused on securing a place in the Champions League for next season instead, with Chelsea just outside the top four.
As such, Sarri, who will likely restore Eden Hazard to the starting line-up after resting him, will be hoping to take advantage to carve a path back into the upper echelons.
The Italian previously said this week that he did not feel he had lost the dressing room at any given point this season, stating: "In my opinion, no. Of
"They respected me before. It wasn't a problem for me, the dressing room. We have some problems with the mentality because we did very bad in two or three matches, not the dressing room.”
However, Chelsea's two-window transfer ban has been upheld while FIFA hears their appeal, much to their frustration.
"Chelsea Football Club is astonished by the FIFA Appeal Committee’s decision not to suspend its sanction pending completion of the appeal process,” an official statement said.
"The club acted in accordance with the relevant regulations and has already notified FIFA of its intention to appeal against the Disciplinary Committee’s decision and sanction.
“As a matter of procedural fairness and equality of treatment, and Swiss law, the Club’s right to an appeal process must be afforded, before any irremediable sanction takes effect.”
