The Blues will look to extend their 11-match unbeaten home run

Chelsea have struggled to find consistency this term with the team languishing in 10th position. They have been undefeated in the last ten matches at home. However, Mauricio Pochettino will be concerned about their away form since they have only won one out of seven. This season, the Blues are just one step away from winning silverware with a final against the Reds and a replay in the FA Cup

In recent matches, Wolves have shown their best form with wins over Chelsea, Brentford and Everton and a 0-0 draw against Brighton in the last five matches, with Manchester United being the only loss. Gary O’Neil will aim to have the double over the Blues this season, having already won at home. They also managed to progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup after defeating West Brom by 0-2. 

Kick-Off:

Sunday, 4 February 2024 at 7:30 PM IST

Location: Stamford Bridge

Form:

Chelsea (in all competitions): L-D-W-W-L

Wolves (in all competitions): L-W-D-W-D

Player to Watch

Cole Palmer (Chelsea)

With nine goals and four assists from 19 matches, Cole Palmer has been a key component of the Blues’ recent success. He is the best signing for the Blues this season. Pochettino has a lot of options thanks to Cole Palmer’s ability to play multiple positions in the attacking third. He played as a false nine against Liverpool in the last match, demonstrating his versatility. 

Matheus Cunha (Wolves) 

He has been in impressive form for Wolves this season with his ability to score as well as create chances. Gary O’Neil will use him in the absence of Hwang to create havoc against the Blues unsettled backline. He has scored six goals and five assists this term, highlighting his importance to the team.
