Matchday 9 of the 2022/2023 Premier League season sees Wolves head to West London to face Chelsea.
After a poor start in the first few rounds of the campaign, Chelsea have grown in confidence over the last couple of weeks, thanks to their new manager Graham Potter coming in.
A win last week away at Crystal Palace saw the Blues slide up to 5th place, but still 8 points off the top.
The two-time Champions League winners also produced a statement performance in Europe’s elite competition in midweek, with a 3-0 win over a strong AC Milan side, and Potter will be looking to orchestrate a similar result this afternoon at Stamford Bridge.
The visitors of today’s encounter have had a sorry start to their season, and they worryingly sit in the relegation zone, after only winning one game in England’s top division so far.
Wolves head into the tie without a manager, following the sacking of Bruno Lage last week, and the fans will be hoping they can replace their old Portuguese boss soon and that their new man will turn around their lacklustre season.
