Our prediction for this Premier League match:
After recording a routine 3-1 win over Luton Town in the FA Cup last 32 at the weekend, Chelsea will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Wolverhampton in the Premier League round 20. The Blues aim to keep their Champions League hopes alive, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Nuno Espirito Santo’s troops. N’ Golo Kante is rated doubtful for the midweek match, with Jorginho and Chilwell pushing for a start.
The Wolves, on the other hand, defeated lower-league side Chorley in the FA Cup at the weekend, with Vitinha scoring the only goal of the match. Wolverhampton, though, have been struggling in the Premier League ever since Raul Jimenez suffered a serious injury, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. The likes of Marcal, Podence, and Jonny remain in the recovery room as well.
Highlighted Player (Timo Werner):
Timo Werner is a German starlet, who began his senior career at Vfb Stuttgart. The German forward, who was born in Stuttgart on March 6, 1996, scored 13 goals in 95 appearances in the league for Die Schwaben and in 2016 he moved to fellow Bundesliga side Leipzig and he impressed with the Red Bulls in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign, scoring 21 goals in the process.
To make things even better for the talented attacker, he represented Germany at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup and it has to be noted that he provided an assist for Lars Stindl in the title game. Despite the fact that coach Joachim Low rested star players at the tournament in Russia, the Germans eventually won the trophy.
Timo Werner played for the Germany U17 team as well and he won the silver medal with die Mannschaft at the 2012 UEFA European Championship. His main position is centre forward, but he is used as a winger as well. Timo Werner’s contract with Leipzig should expire on June 30, 2020.
