The Chelsea vs Wolves fixture is the first one after the Frank Lampard era. It is also not an easy assignment as it goes up against the Wolves at Stamford Bridge.
The team fired Lampard due to the lack of efficiency coming from fresh signings Timo Werner and Kai Havertz. According to football betting picks experts, Havertz hasn’t adjusted into the league yet. It didn’t help that he suffered from COVID-19 that had him sidelined for a week. He scored a single goal in 16 Premier League appearances and gave two assists.
