Chelsea v Wolverhampton Wanderers: how to watch the Blue’s next Premier League game on TV and live streaming

Will Chelsea’s European delight midweek translate into their next Premier League game against Wolves?

After a fantastic result midweek in the UEFA Champions League and the first win under the leadership of Graham Potter, Chelsea face Wolves this weekend in the Premier League.

The Blues were strong during their Champions League group game against AC Milan, beating the Serie A team 3-0 at home with goals from Wesley Fofana, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Reece James.

The result leaves Chelsea second in Group E of the UEFA Champions League, one point behind surprise leaders RB Salzburg of Austria.

Closer to home, Chelsea sit fifth in the Premier League table with 13 points, one point behind Graham Potter’s former club Brighton and Hove Albion.

Chelsea have been on a run of two wins in the Premier League - can they continue their good fortune as they play Wolverhampton Wanderers at home this weekend?

How did Chelsea’s opponents fare in their last game?

Wolves last Premier League game was against another London club, West Ham United, away from home last weekend.

The club fell to goals from Gianluca Scamacca and Jarrod Bowen in a 2-0 defeat to the Hammers.

The result saw Wolverhampton drop into the relegation zone in 18th position, and left manager Bruno Lage jobless; he was sacked shortly after the result.

Chelsea v Wolves has been selected for a 3pm kick-off time on Saturday and so it won’t be shown live on UK television.  This is to comply with the ‘blackout’ regulation on televised coverage between 2:45pm and 5:15pm on a Saturday.

Under the rules, broadcasting rights are restricted for clubs in the UK, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands, and the Isle of Man.

Not all is lost, though, as highlights will be available for Sky Sports subscribers on the Sky Sports app around 15-30 minutes after the final whistle.

Sky Sports will also be providing punditry throughout the football pyramid with their Gillette Labs Soccer Saturday programme on Sky Sports News, Sky Sports Football and Sky Sports Premier League from 3pm.

BBC’s flagship football show, Match of the Day, will also show extended highlights of Chelsea v Wolves alongside all the other games in the Premier League on BBC One at 10:25pm on Saturday evening.
