Chris Sutton and Paul Merson make predictions that Chelsea fans will love

Chelsea are preparing to host Wolves in Graham Potter’s second Premier League match in charge.

BBC Sport pundit Chris Sutton has predicted a comfortable victory for Chelsea this weekend.

The London club were finally given something to cheer about on Wednesday as they came out 3-0 winners in their Champions League clash with AC Milan.

Graham Potter was appointed as Thomas Tuchel’s replacement last month and had picked up his first win against Crystal Palace at the weekend and will now be eager to continue their much improved form.

The Blues return to the Premier League on Saturday where they are set to host Wolves, who are now on the hunt for a new manager following Bruno Lage’s sacking.

Writing in his BBC Sport column, Sutton wrote: “It was a bit harsh for Wolves to sack Bruno Lage so early in the season. They had issues scoring goals, of course, but it is not his fault that their strikers got injured.

“They are managerless at the moment and I can’t see them winning here, either.

“Chelsea are finding their feet under Graham Potter and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has started scoring, so they should take the points pretty comfortably.”

After scoring two goals in as many games, Aubameyang will look to play a key role in catapulting Chelsea up the table.

A win at Stamford Bridge could see them overtake Brighton into fourth place - though Potter will want to ensure his new side remain consistent if they are to have any chance of catching up with the likes of Arsenal and Man City.

Former Arsenal star Paul Merson has also backed Chelsea for the win this weekend, praising the Blues’ players for their performance against AC Milan.

Speaking to sportskeeda, Merson said: “Reece James was outstanding and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got his name on the scoresheet for the second game running, indicating that Chelsea are slowly starting to find their feet under their new manager.”
