FA CUP Preview : Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Chelsea

Friday, February 17th, 2017

Wolves’ form has tailed off since beating Liverpool in the last round of the FA Cup. Paul Lambert’s side have lost each of their last three, although their last two have only ended in 1-0 defeats.

Chelsea are unbeaten in seven matches since losing to Tottenham at the start of January and should have more than enough to overcome Wolves on Saturday despite the fact Antonio Conte is expected to make wholesale changes once again. NaijaBet.com

Chelsea won 6-0 the last time these two sides met back in 2012 and a repeat scoreline may not be far off this weekend.
