With only one win in their last five league games, Wolverhampton will be facing a tough challenge when they host the Premier League leaders Chelsea at the Molineux Stadium in the FA Cup.
Tough Situation For The Hosts
Wolves manager Paul Lambert could make changes to his normal XI here and reward some of the players that helped them beat Liverpool in the last round.
Wolverhampton have collected a total of 3 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Championship. Their last league match was against Wigan at home where they lost 1-0.
Wolverhampton are currently sitting in the 18th place in the league table. They have 35 points from 9 wins, 8 draws and 14 losses. The team scored 38 goals and conceded 42 since the start of the season.
Chelsea Looking For The Double
Chelsea have collected a total of 11 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Premier League. Their last league match was against Burnley away from home where they drew 1-1.
Chelsea are currently sitting in the 1st place in the league table. They have 60 points from 19 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses. They have scored 52 goals and conceded 18 since the start of the season.
John Terry travelled with the squad for their 1-1 draw with Burnley but didn’t participate in the squad after suffering a nasty training ground injury late last week.
The goals have run dry for Diego Costa in recent matches and Antonio Conte may opt to give him a rest this weekend.
Head To Head
Chelsea have won 4 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in September 2012 when the final score was 6-0 to Chelsea at the Stamford Bridge.
