Chris Sutton makes prediction for Chelsea vs Wolves and gives take on Bruno Lage sacking

BBC Sport pundit Chris Sutton has predicted Wolves’ woes to continue this weekend against Chelsea.

The team head into the game in the relegation zone following last weekend’s 2-0 defeat by West Ham United.

That result was the final straw for Wolves officials, who sacked Bruno Lage on Sunday.

The hunt is now on for a new manager, and U18s and U23s coaches Steve Davis and James Collins will head the first-team in the meantime.

Wolves drew both games against Chelsea last season and so there will be hope of getting something out of this game despite not having a manager.

But Chelsea are a dangerous side, and are headed by a brilliant coach in Graham Potter.

It will be a tough game, and in the eyes of Sutton, Wolves will not have enough down in west London.

Predicting a 2-0 win for Chelsea, Sutton also gave his view of Wolves’ decision to sack Lage.

He said (BBC Sport): “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.”

Wolves can’t really be blamed for sacking Bruno Lage given claims this week

Lage himself will probably feel that his sacking by Wolves was harsh.

But if reports are to be believed, the club probably made the right choice.

Supposedly the dressing room wasn’t in a very good way and a number of players did not like some of his methods.

He supposedly had numerous fallouts, and the lack of social media posts about him from the players perhaps tells its own story.

Wolves officials will now hope the new man that comes in will be able to raise morale and make use of the talent that’s in that dressing room.
