"They can’t afford to slip up again" - Michael Owen predicts the result of Chelsea's clash with Wolves

Former Liverpool forward Michael Owen has backed Chelsea to secure a 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers in Saturday’s (7 May) Premier League encounter. Having dropped points in three of their last four Premier League games, Thomas Tuchel’s side find themselves under the cosh.

Their 1-0 loss at the hands of relegation-threatened Everton on matchday 34 was particularly unsettling, as it brought the Blues within touching distance of fourth-placed Arsenal. Mikel Arteta’s Gunners, who are on a three-game winning run, currently sit only three points behind the FA Cup finalists.

Tuchel’s side will next welcome Wolves, hoping to bounce back from their recent rough patch. Although Owen acknowledged the sudden pressure the west Londoners find themselves under, he doesn't think the Molineux outfit would threaten their peace at Stamford Bridge. In his column for Bet Victor , Owen wrote:

“That defeat to Everton was a bad one for Chelsea and all of a sudden, there’s a little bit of pressure on them. Spurs and in particular, Arsenal, aren’t far off them now and Chelsea will be looking over their shoulders.

 They’ve still got a points cushion, but they can’t afford to slip up again. Wolves are in poor form though. That’s now three defeats in a row and just as worryingly, they’ve not scored in any of them. They’ve obviously had issues scoring goals all season.”

The former England international capped off his analysis by predicting a routine 2-0 win for the hosts. He added:

“I can’t see Wolves posing much threat here. This should be a routine 2-0 Chelsea win.”
