Chelsea will take on Wolverhampton. The match will take place at Stamford Bridge (London) on Saturday, October 8.
Chelsea has already succeeded in changing the coach. The Champions League was won by the Blues under Tuchel. There were no more bright successes after that. It was possible to remain in the group of leaders. Moreover, the German kept the project together in spring when Roman Abramovich’s assets were blocked. It ended up finishing in a respectable 3rd position. It seems that the new owner was unable to speak the same language. However, there were numerous failures on the field. The manager resigned at the start of autumn. Potter replaced him and only played a 1-1 draw at home against Red Bull (Salzburg). After a short pause to watch the matches between the national teams, it was able to beat Crystal Palace. Gallagher scored at 90+ minutes a 2-1 win. The Champions League ended with a convincing 3-0 win for Milan.
Wolverhampton sacks manager to stop the decline. “Wolves” was an original project that focuses on replenishment from Portugal. It worked out more or less well. They were able to qualify for the Europa League under Nuno Espirito Sante. Yes. With Bruno Lage as their mentor, they finished in the top ten in the last championship. This is also a significant achievement for the Wanderers. Kalajdzic was one of the most important summer rookies and it didn’t go as planned. Diego Costa, who was signed to replace him, hasn’t played since the start of this calendar year and has only just reached his peak. Slowly, it seemed to pick up momentum. The Wolves drew with Newcastle and Bournemouth and then beat Southampton by Podense due to a single goal. After a pause for international matches, there was 0-3 with Manchester City, and 0-2 with West Ham. This was enough to fire the coach.
Wolverhampton had beat Chelsea in December 2020. There were also draws in head to heads three times. Chelsea has already started to receive “dividends”, and Wolverhampton only hopes for a similar effect in future. In such circumstances, the hosts will win with an “-1 goal handicap”.
Prediction: Chelsea will win the match with -1.0 handicap
