Chelsea vs Wolves

, KO: 16:00 Jul 26, 2020, Stamford Bridge

THE stage is set for a thrilling finale to the season at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea bid to secure Champions League football and Wolves seek the win that would secure a return to the Europa League.

It looked like the Blues might get the point they needed in midweek when they came from 4-1 down to threaten at draw a Anfield, only to be hit by a late sucker punch as Liverpool sealed a 5-3 win before lifting the Premier League trophy.

It was a glory night for Jurgen Klopp's men and a good one for our man Slips Tips as well, with all three of his recommended bets coming up.

With top-four rivals Leicester and Manchester United facing each other at the King Power Stadium, Frank Lampard's side could even qualify if they lose against the Molineux men. That's why the bookies make them odds-on favourites to seal a Champions League slot, at a best 1/7 with Bet365.

With an FA Cup Final on the horizon next weekend, Chelsea will be desperate to finish their league campaign with a win and build some momentum. Wolves will be dangerous opponents though and it should be a fascinating game as Nuno Espirito Santo's side need to go for all three points.

Spurs sit just a point behind them heading into their final game at out-of-form Crystal Palace and I'm expecting Jose Mourinho's men to grind out a victory.

If that happens, a point wouldn't be enough for Wolves so they will have to attack Lampard's side and will take plenty of heart from the way Chelsea defended at Anfield on Wednesday night.

How the bookies view it

Chelsea have been a bit flaky recently but are still odds-on favourites for a win, at a best 19/20 with VBet. Plenty of punters will fancy a nibble at Wolves' price of 16/5 with William Hill while the draw is 14/5 at Bet365.

Recent head to head

Wolves had the edge over Chelsea last season, drawing 1-1 at Stamford Bridge after a 2-1 triumph at Molineux, but were thrashed 5-2 at home when the Blues came calling earlier in this campaign (below).

Stamford Bridge hasn't been a happy hunting ground for Wolves, with Chelsea winning six on the trot there before that stalemate last term.

Players to watch

Tammy Abraham hit a hat-trick and an own goal at Molineux earlier this season but has since lost form, with Lampard (below) picking Olivier Giroud up top recently.

Despite that, Abraham heads the anytime scorer market at 29/20 with 888Sport while Giroud is a little longer at 8/5 with Bet365. But my money is going American winger Christian Pulisic after an electrifying display off the bench at Anfield.

Pulisic scored and claimed an assist so his confidence will be high for this one and he's 5/2 with SportNation for a goal.

Wolves top scorer Raul Jimenez let me down when I tipped him for a goal against Crystal Palace last time out and is 43/20 with 888Sport for a goal here.

Chelsea were all over the place at set-pieces against Liverpool so one of the Wolves defenders could grab a goal from a corner or free-kick here. Willy Boly is 20/1 with Betfred to score while sidekick Conor Coady is even bigger at 45/1 with Paddy Power.

Anything else catch the eye?

With the Blues dodgy at set-pieces it could pay to back a header to be scored by any side, which is priced 5/4 at William Hill.

Both teams will go for it so I wouldn't be surprised if we were treated to a few goals. Over 2.5 strikes pays 10/11 at Bet365 while both teams to score is a little shorter at 5/6 with Unibet.

There has been a goal in each half in two of the last three games between these sides and a repeat here is priced 4/5 by William Hill.
