Sky Sports football expert Charlie Nicholas has backed Wolverhampton Wanderers to beat Chelsea at Molineux this weekend.
The Blues will travel to the Midlands with a view to secure their second victory. Frank Lampard’s men are currently eleventh in the table having notched 5 points from 4 games.
“Wolves do well against the big teams,” the former Arsenal man wrote in his Sky Sports column. “Tammy Abraham has been in form and Mason Mount has been spectacularly good,” Nicholas said.
“Chelsea are still vulnerable at the back and will be threatened by Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez upfront.”
“I see Wolves beating Chelsea this weekend, and Wolves are the team, as many people that are talking about Leicester, that could definitely override the top-six trend.”
Wolves had a particularly impressive season against the Premier League top six last season and have started on the same note this time as well. They clawed back from a one-goal deficit to secure a 1-1 draw against Manchester United earlier.
It remains to be seen if Lampard and co-manage to pass the tough test that Wolves will bring to the table.
