Mark Lawrenson has thrown his support behind Chelsea to bounce back to winning form when they face Wolverhampton Wanderers at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, February 4. The former Liverpool defender believes that Mauricio Pochettino’s team will be eager to redeem themselves after suffering a 4-1 defeat to Jurgen Klopp’s side in their recent outing.
Lawrenson suggests that Pochettino might make tactical adjustments against Wolves and predicts that Chelsea will emerge victorious. He anticipates a 2-0 win for the Blues and shared his thoughts with Paddy Power:
“I think Chelsea might get a reaction here. They can’t be as bad again as they were against Liverpool on Wednesday. I think they’ll probably change formation as well. I’ll go for Chelsea to win, although that’s not with any great conviction. I’m not sure Wolves will score at Chelsea.”
Mark Lawrenson’s prediction: Chelsea 2-0 Wolves
Chelsea has encountered challenges in maintaining consistency this season, although they displayed signs of improvement prior to their defeat against Liverpool. The Blues have been relatively strong at home, remaining unbeaten in their last 10 matches at Stamford Bridge.
In the earlier encounter at the Molineux, Wolves secured a 2-1 victory. Despite suffering a narrow 4-3 loss to Manchester United in their recent fixture, the Midlands team will be hopeful of securing another triumph over Chelsea.
