The Blues are in fine form heading into the clash at Stamford Bridge while the visitors are struggling

Chelsea hope to make it three straight wins this week when they host Wolves in the Premier League. The Blues maintained their unbeaten run under new coach Graham Potter by beating Crystal Palace and AC Milan in the last week.

They take on a Wolves team enduring a difficult few weeks, having lost to Manchester City and West Ham heading into this match.

Chelsea vs Wolves latest odds

Chelsea are naturally the big favourites to get the three points at Stamford Bridge, with bet365 offering odds of 2/5 (1.4).

The visitors are priced at 7/1 (8.0) with the draw available at 7/2 (4.5).

Chelsea vs Wolves first goal scorer odds

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is on a good run at Chelsea, having scored against Crystal Palace and again at against AC Milan in midweek. He is the favourite to get the game's first goal at 15/4 (4.75) while team-mate Armando Broja is 4/1 (5.00).

Raul Jimenez is the lowest-priced Wolves player to find the net first at 11/1 (12.0) and Diego Costa is 14/1 (15.0).

Chelsea vs Wolves preview

Chelsea are off to a fine start under their new coach, having won two and drawn one of their first three matches since his arrival.

They will be confident of continuing that run when they take on a Wolves team going through a tough period.

Coach Bruno Lage was sacked last week after the defeat to West Ham with the team sitting third-bottom of the table.

The visitors have even more bad news as it was confirmed Pedro Neto requires surgery on an ankle injury, plus Ruben Neves and Nathan Collins are both suspended.

Hee Chan Hwang is back in training and could feature, however.

Chelsea vs Wolves tips and predictions

Chelsea are looking strong heading into this game while Wolves have many issues plaguing them ahead of the visit to Stamford Bridge, so backing the hosts to win with a -1 handicap at 21/20 (2.05) looks a smart bet.
