Wolverhampton Wanderers are back in Premier League action on Saturday as they take on Chelsea away at Stamford Bridge.

The Wanderers, who are currently sat in the relegation zone, have really struggled of late with just one win in their opening eight fixtures.

Bruno Lage was relieved of his duties soon after his side were defeated 2-0 by West Ham on Saturday, and Wolves are yet to appoint a replacement.

Next up is an even tougher challenge in Chelsea, who are in the opposite half of the table having beaten Crystal Palace in their last outing.

It was a winning start for the Blues in a new era under Graham Potter, as Conor Gallagher grabbed a 90th-minute winner against his former club.

Chelsea are just one point outside the top four and will be hoping to build momentum towards their Champions League push.

Wolves will need to be at their best to get a positive result at one of the toughest grounds to visit in the top tier.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Chelsea vs Wolves, including the kick-off time, the latest team news, and how to watch the game on TV.

Is Chelsea vs Wolves on TV and how can I watch the game?

Chelsea vs Wolves has been selected for a 3pm kick-off time on Saturday, October 8 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.

Highlights and analysis will also be shown on Match of the Day, which will be aired on BBC One at 10.25pm on Saturday, October 8.

What is the team news ahead of Chelsea vs Wolves?

Wolves have a whole host of injury problems to contend with ahead of their first Premier League game since Lage’s sacking.
