  • Chelsea have won the FA Cup 4 times in the past 10 years
  • Wolves have lost 9 of their past 10 meetings with Chelsea

Form Lines

Antonio Conte is expected to field a strong side in the West Midlands, although he might not risk David Luiz who has been struggling with injuries, and it is difficult to see the London side becoming the latest victims of a 'cupset' against Wolves.

Paul Lambert's side picked up their first wins in the FA Cup since 2011 by stunning Stoke and Liverpool so far this season but it is telling that both of those wins came when the pressure was off away from home but they have been dreadful on home soil.

Wolves have lost seven of their past ten matches at Molineux, keeping one clean sheet in that time, and it is no surprise to see that they are 8/1 underdogs (Paddy Power).

Chelsea To Secure Victory

Wolves, who are making their first appearance in the fifth round since 2008, have managed just one clean sheet in their last ten at home and they have been abysmal in losing each of their past three Championship games.

They host the Premier League table-toppers, who have won fifteen of their past eighteen matches in all competitions (drawn two, lost one) and it is worth noting that Chelsea led at half-time in twelve of those. With that in mind, the half-time and full-time Chelsea win looks like a decent bet at 11/10 (Coral).

Willian To Strike

Chelsea have won nine of their past ten meetings with Wolves (lost one) after winning their most recent clash 6-0 during the 2012 League Cup and we expect them to secure another comfortable victory.

Willian could be the man to set them on the way and he is 15/2 to be first goalscorer (Bet 365) after notching four goals in five FA Cup starts, including in their 4-1 win over Peterborough and 4-0 victory against Brentford in this season's competition.
