Chelsea lost 2-1 to Wolves when the teams faced off in December, in a game that proved to be pretty important.

Having just lost to Tottenham, breaking our unbeaten run, we were in need of positive results to set things right again. And that looked a real possibility after Conor Coady headed in Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s shot before 20 minutes had passed.b

But Wolves turned the game around and caught us on two deadly counter attacks, leaving us beaten and Maurizio Sarri in trouble.

Things will be different in tomorrow’s game though. For one thing, it’s at Stamford Bridge, and the powerful home crowd that backed their boys to the win once they had got level won’t be there to help our opposition.

There’s another secret weapon up our sleeve too. That first game could have been won easily had Alvaro Morata had his shooting boots on. Now, with Gonzalo Higuain starting to look predatory in the box again, we should be able to convert our chances at home and seal the three points.
