Wolves vs Chelsea head to head
We have not drawn at Molineux in the league since a 1-1 draw in May 1977 in a game that secured our promotion to Division One. Tommy Langley and John Richards scored the goals.
Chelsea achieved the double over Wolves last term having not managed to win either league game the season before.
The Blues have only failed to score in one of our last 17 top-flight meetings with Wolves – a 0-1 defeat at Molineux in January 2011.
The last seven Premier League goals to be scored at Molineux by Chelsea players have been by Englishmen (Frank Lampard, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Fikayo Tomori, Tammy Abraham (three) and Mason Mount).

Our defeat at Everton ended our 17-game unbeaten run in all competitions since our defeat to Liverpool on 20 September.
Chelsea conceded our first penalty of the season at Goodison Park and the first since our away Champions League game at Bayern Munich in August.
The last penalty we conceded in the Premier League was over a year ago in November 2019 in our 2-1 win at Watford.
Chelsea are looking to avoid back-to-back Premier League defeats for the first time in a year.
Frank Lampard’s side have yet to lose in a game in which they have led this season.
