With the visitors conceding plenty of goals this season we think another high scoring game could be on the cards when they visit the Black Country

Frank Lampard takes his Chelsea team to Molineux this weekend to face a Wolves side who are still looking for their first Premier League win of the season. Nuno Espirito Santo's side were in impressive form in the Europa League qualifiers but domestically have recorded three draws and a defeat from their opening four games. The Blues for their part have made a disappointing start to the campaign under their new manager claiming just five points from a possible 12. 

Latest odds

Wolves were victorious the last time they hosted the west Londoners beating them 2-1 back in December. Sportsbet offer another win for the home side at 2.88, with Chelsea priced at 2.40 and the draw at 3.25.

Wolves vs Chelsea Team News

The visitors will be hoping N'Golo Kante has recovered from the ankle problem that kept him out of the last two matches before the international break. Having not joined the French squad, the midfielder should be close to being available. Mateo Kovacic withdrew from the Croatia squad with an Achilles problem and is a doubt, while Emerson also picked up a knock with Italy although it is not thought to be too serious. Antonio Rudiger could make his return from a long-term injury. Wolves have Willy Boly suspended after his red card against Everton while Matt Doherty is out with a knee injury.

Wolves vs Chelsea Preview

Only Norwich City have conceded more than Chelsea's total of nine goals so far this season with the Blues failing to keep a clean sheet in their four matches. Newly promoted Norwich managed to score twice against the Blues as did fellow newcomers Sheffield United, raising serious questions about Chelsea's backline. Wolves for their part have played 10 competitive games this season including their Europa League qualifiers, scoring in nine of those games. In front of their own fans, the Black Country outfit have netted in 16 of their last 21 Premier League encounters and they can surely contribute to a high scoring game this weekend.

Tips and predictions

Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is offered at 2.15 and looks a strong selection for this game. For those looking to play it a little more cautiously, backing both team to score as a stand alone bet at 1.72 looks an obvious angle.
