Wolves v Chelsea Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

After a very strong start to the season, Wolverhampton have fallen apart lately. Wolves have lost five of their last six matches, including losses to Brighton & Hove Albion, Huddersfield Town and, most recently, Cardiff City. Their form has seen them drop to 12th in the Premier League and they will have to turn things around soon if they are to avoid falling into the relegation scrap.
