Two sides who have their sights firmly set on securing another European finish this season, Chelsea will welcome Wolves to an empty Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

Eventually leaving Anfield on the wrong end of what turned out to be an eight-goal thriller, the Blues open this weekend sat in that lucrative fourth and final Champions League spot, holding a one-point buffer over a stalling Leicester.

On the flip side, picking up what was a much-needed 2-0 victory against Crystal Palace in midweek, Wolves still find themselves sat in sixth and have now collected seven points over their last three Premier League appearances.

You might be interested to know, with Chelsea picking up a stunning 5-2 victory when they travelled to the Midlands earlier in the season, the two sides have a habit of producing lively encounters.

With each of the last three meetings between Chelsea and Wolves seeing both teams find the net by the final whistle, a similar outcome at Stamford Bridge can be found priced at 4/5 with William Hill for Sunday afternoon.

Giroud extends on his tally

Although Chelsea might have shipped five away at Anfield in midweek and continued on a worrying rut on the road, Frank Lampard was filled with praise for his squad on Wednesday night.

Still sat in pole position to secure another top-four finish this summer, the Blues also managed to book their spot in the final of this year’s FA Cup thanks to a stunning 3-1 win against Manchester United at Wembley last weekend.

With the red-hot Christian Pulisic expected to be recalled to Lampard’s starting XI after a glittering solo cameo display in midweek, one man to keep an eye out for will be World Cup-winner, Olivier Giroud.

Enjoying his most fruitful spell at Stamford Bridge, the former Arsenal striker once again found the net against Liverpool earlier in the week and is enjoying a real purple patch.

Along with adding to his tally in last week’s FA Cup semi-final, the 33-year-old has found the net in his last three appearances on the bounce.

Even more impressive, with five goals in his last six contests across all competitions, Giroud has already recorded six-post lockdown strikes since the restart last month.

You might be interested to know that the Frenchman can be found priced at 8/5 with Unibet to extend on his tally in West London this weekend.

Wolves need a win

Appearing to bounce back from their back-to-back defeats against Arsenal and Sheffield United earlier in the month, Wolves still find themselves sat in pole position to secure another top-six finish this summer.

Picking up what turned out to be a routine 2-0 win against Crystal Palace earlier in the week, the Oranges have collected seven points over their last three Premier League appearances.

Although Nuno Espírito Santo’s men might hold just a one-point buffer over Spurs, Wolves have picked up 59 points this season, surpassing their total for last term (57).

With Tottenham traveling to a downbeat Selhurst Park for their season finale this weekend, you might be interested to know that Santo’s side are currently priced at 6/5 with Coral to secure a top-six finish on Sunday.

Elsewhere, if Wolves are to land an automatic route back to the Europa League, Santo will be calling on leading marksman Raul Jimenez to lead their charge in West London.

Enjoying his own record-breaking campaign at Molineux and with two goals in his last three Premier League outings, the Mexican striker is pencilled in at 15/8 with 888Sport to end his year with another strike on Sunday.
