New look Chelsea, Wolverhampton, look to be battling for Premier League top four — Sheffield United vs Wolverhampton begins at 1 pm, and Brighton vs Chelsea kicks off at 3:15 pm
You won’t find too many people who think this Chelsea team has not improved offensively.
But are the Blues better?
There are still major deficiencies at the back, where the goal keeper position is a massive issue, as is the back four. Maybe Chelsea can just win 5-4 every match?
What about Wolverhampton? This team, without the responsibilities of UEFA Europa League play, may be a huge contender to jump up into the Premier League top six, and maybe top four.
I am a big fan of Wolves, who have to go to Sheffield United, which lost its best player from a fantastic first season back in the top flight, keeper Dean Henderson, back to Manchester United.
Look for the Wolves to start their hunt with a victory.
