    Not my favourite away ground to visit, been the last 2 years once in the Cup and last year. (1 win 1 loss) Only one designated away pub, always a bit dodgy coming out of the ground.

    I'd be happy with another draw, after a lot of our squad were away on international duty.

    Chelsea meant to have a few players back from injury I believe, both got European games to worry about during the week as well

    Can see a draw in this one

    So it has been a winless start to the Premier League season for Wolves. Nuno Espirito Santa has guided his side into the Europa League group stages and the noise around at the moment is that the Europa League has already stretched the squad. Nonsense. It's been a difficult start, but by no means should alarm bells be ringing. Draws against Leicester and Man United are not a time to get worried, although three points would have been expected at home to Burnley, who themselves have looked solid up to the home defeat by Liverpool. Winning both legs in the Europa League play off round against Torino was highly impressive for a side playing Championship football the season before last. The 3-2 defeat at Everton would have hurt after drawing level with just 15 minutes to go but the season has not long started, even for Wolves, so the players are fit and fresh and ready to go. The real test will come when the Europa League starts proper. It will be interesting to see how the new signings, Cutrone in particular, get on as the season gathers pace. Sometimes it's easy to forget Wolves were newly promoted last year and are now playing in Europe, but they will be relishing the chance to claim a scalp at home against Chelsea, considering they are undefeated in their last 10 Premier League home matches.


    Where to start with Chelsea so far this season? Entertaining coming form a neutral standpoint. Errors galore, emerging talent and a footballing legend overseeing this and more. Slipping up to Sheffield United was a massive disappointment and there are no ways to sugarcoat it. The blues led 2-0 and a Kurt Zouma own goal salvaged a last minute point for the blades. Sheffield have started well this season but it was a game Chelsea needed to win and should have. People are pointing to the emergence of Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham who have shown they have a future at this club, but a club like Chelsea needs results. Leicester should have taken all three points at the Bridge, while Man United punished Chelsea late on at Old Trafford. Super Frank just does not seem to have the right balance yet but I don't think he's far away. Emerson out for this one at left back will be a loss, I have been really impressed with him so far this season. When Hudson-Odoi and Kante are back fully fit I think we will see a better Chelsea side. There is a lot more to come, however, I feel we may have to wait and be patient to see the best of it. Thankfully for Chelsea, it's a club legend at the helm and he may just get that time.

    Again, I see goals. Boly out suspended will be a miss for Wolves, but I am still tipping them for a victory this weekend. Neves and Moutinho will run the midfield and Dendonker is slowly improving and his game should complement the duo. With a vibrant, energetic attack Chelsea will get on the score sheet but I can't see it being enough. Wolves to win and both teams to score.


    Sorry gate17.

    Before Gal gives me the eyes emoji I still don’t think Abraham is the solution long term. And he still hasn’t scored against anyone good

    We've been spectacularly bad today. Absolutely all over the place all over the pitch.

    It's sad that it's taken a transfer ban for Abraham to be given a chance in the PL. Proving his doubters more wrong with each passing week

    Abraham finally getting a good run of games and showing his class. Hope he carries it on through the season. The lad looks class.

    Youth product.
    Plays for the badge.
    Young with room to grow.

    Even if he isn’t a starter, he is undoubtedly a long term solution as a striker at this club.

    Kovacic bossing this game and Lampard showing his tactical nous.

    I'd score a hatful against us on this performance. Tammy has finished them well but the defending is as bad as you'll ever see.

    I know he’s an average striker but it’s still funny.

    Come a long way from Mourinho's 'academy day', when Solanke or Loftus cheek got 10 minute cameos in an already qualified CL game.

    10 goals in 5 games from our youth. Transfer ban has been a blessing in this regard.
