Wolves vs Chelsea: Premier League match preview including TV channel, team news, lineups and prediction

Chelsea and Wolves will clash in the first Premier League Christmas Eve fixture since 1995. Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea are currently in tenth place, but have won their last two games in all competitions. However, Wolves will draw level with the Blues if they win on Sunday. Wolves have already scored big victories over top teams like Tottenham and Manchester City at home and are looking to continue their success.

Jose Sa and Pedro Neto are both doubtful for Wolves due to injury, but could still feature in the game. Christopher Nkunku made his first appearance for Chelsea in the Carabao Cup and is likely to play in the Premier League game against Wolves. Pochettino’s Chelsea is still without several injured players, including Robert Sanchez and Marc Cucurella, while Ben Chilwell and Enzo Fernandez are also unlikely to feature.

Chelsea has struggled with inconsistency under Pochettino’s leadership, making them vulnerable to Wolves’ threat, especially in transition. Wolves have had a full week to prepare for the game and have proven to be tough opposition for teams that try to monopolize possession. The potential return of Neto is a boost for Wolves, and they have the coach and astuteness to contain Chelsea’s attack while posing a threat in transition through players like Matheus Cunha, Jean Ricner Bellegarde, and Hwang Hee-chan.

It’s expected to be a thrilling match as both teams aim to secure a win before the Christmas break. The game is set to be broadcasted on various TV channels and live streams in different countries. Overall, the clash between Chelsea and Wolves is highly anticipated, and both teams will be looking to end the first part of the season on a high note.
