The Blues will be hoping to close the gap on Manchester City as they travel to Molineux to face Nuno Espirito Santo's struggling side

Chelsea travel to Wolves on Wednesday night hoping to close the gap on Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.

The Blues have lost only once in the league this season and they will have this game marked down as a match they should win as they face a struggling side.

Wolves' good start to the season sees them in midtable, but their form of late is that of a relegation-threatened team. 

The Midlands club haven't won since beating Crystal Palace at the beginning of October and have picked up only one point in their last six league games.

Match Preview

Cesar Azpilicueta Chelsea 2018-19

Chelsea are once again playing catch-up as Manchester City beat Watford 2-1 on Tuesday.

Despite only losing one game all season Maurizio Sarri's side are 10 points behind the league leaders. 

Although Riyad Mahrez maintains that Chelsea are a threat if the Blues lose tonight then their title ambitions could be on the brink of being over.

They couldn't ask for much better opposition to come up against than Wolves. The newly promoted club have been beaten by Cardiff and Huddersfield in their last two and will be dreading the prospect of coming up against one of the best teams in the league.

Sarri is refusing to write Wolves off though saying that it will be a difficult game for his players.

"I expect a very difficult match because they are a very technical team.

"They have a lot of players who are very technical. So they were unlucky in the last few matches, I think, but it's not really very easy to play there."
