Former Arsenal and Celtic striker Charlie Nicholas has made a surprise prediction for the Premier League clash between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Chelsea at the Molineux on Saturday afternoon.

Charlie Nicholas is a footballer turned pundit and the ex-Scottish international star made his prediction for the Premier League week five clash between Wolves and Chelsea while he was on Sky Sports.

According to him, Wolves will repeat the 2-1 home win recorded from the corresponding fixture last season.

In the last campaign, Wolves recorded their first win over a top-six club after they came from a goal down at the halftime interval.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek had given Chelsea a first half lead before Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota scored in the second half to hand the hosts the three points on offer.

Wolves qualified for the Europa League as a result of the seventh-placed finish at the end of the last Premier League campaign but they have not been able to match the heights of last season and Charlie Nicholas believes that they will repeat the same 2-1 result against Chelsea.

According to him, the Wolves attack of the likes of Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota would be too much for the Chelsea defense.

Lucas Torreira

Two Italian Serie A sides are reportedly on the trail of Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira ahead of the January transfer market in five week’s time.

According to the Daily Mail, AC Milan and Napoli want to sign Lucas Torreira who is said to be ready to quit the Gunners.

Lucas Torreira is eyeing an exit from Arsenal after the Uruguayan international became disillusioned with the midfield role given to him by Arsenal manager Unai Emery.

The Uruguayan has been used as an attacking midfielder instead of his normal defensive midfield position.

Lucas Torreira has not been an Arsenal regular this season as manager Unai Emery has preferred the trio of Dani Ceballos, Matteo Guendouzi and Granit Xhaka in midfield.

The Uruguayan was able to break into the starting XI due to the absence of Granit Xhaka in the Arsenal team for the last two games.

Swiss international Xhaka had an altercation with the Arsenal fans during a league game at the Emirates Stadium.

Granit Xhaka behaved in a bad way towards the Arsenal fans and that led to him being dropped as the Gunners skipper by Unai Emery.

He is expected to return to the Arsenal squad ahead of the Southampton game tomorrow.
