Preview: Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Chelsea

Wolverhampton wanderers and Chelsea will both be looking to bounce back from dampening defeats in the Premier League when the two sides go head to head at Molineux on Tuesday evening.

The hosts lost on their own patch to West Midlands rivals Aston Villa at the weekend, while Chelsea’s unbeaten run was ended at the hands of Everton in front of the Goodison Park faithful.

Nuno’s men can now only boast one win from their last five in the top flight - an impressive 2-1 triumph at Arsenal - and Wolves have now slipped to 13th in the table following Crystal Palace’s draw with Tottenham Hotspur.

The loss of Jimenez was always going to have a devastating impact on Wolves’ attacking prowess - with 18-year-old Fabio Silva far from the finished article - but the teenager will have to quickly adapt to the Premier League unless Santo opts to bring in another centre-forward in the January transfer window.

Defeat on Merseyside ended Chelsea’s 14-game unbeaten run in all competitions since their EFL Cup defeat to Tottenham Hotspur, and Lampard’s side lost for the first time in the Premier League since Everton’s neighbours Liverpool marched to a 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge in September.

However, both Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur were unable to take advantage of Chelsea’s slip-up on Merseyside, but Leicester City did with a 3-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday - meaning that Lampard’s men find themselves outside of the top four after 12 matches.

Preview: Manchester City vs. West Bromwich Albion

Manchester City will be looking to return to winning ways when they welcome struggling West Brom to the ET I had Stadium on Tuesday night.

Manchester City are currently 9th on the table, while West Brom remain in 19th spot as they continue to struggle for positive results.

Guardiola’s team entered Saturday’s clash with United off the back of two strong victories over Burnley and Fulham in England’s top flight, but a disappointing Manchester derby finished goalless.

West Brom, meanwhile, will enter Tuesday’s clash in Manchester off the back of a 2-1 defeat at Newcastle United on Saturday afternoon. The Baggies recovered from an early setback to level the scores in the second period, but Dwight Gayle came up with an 82nd-minute winner for Steve Bruce’s side.

Not since December 2008 have West Brom managed to beat City in the Premier League, while they have not overcome the Manchester side away from home in England’s top flight since February 2003.
