In the EPL's first Christmas Eve fixture since 1995, Chelsea will be looking to keep their European push on track by beating Wolves away — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.
Wolves: Sa; Kilman, Dawson, Toti; Semedo, Lemina, Gomes, Ait-Nouri; Hwang, Sarabia, Cunha.
Chelsea: Petrovic; Gusto, Disasi, Thiago Silva, Colwill; Ugochukwu, Gallagher; Sterling, Palmer, Jackson; Broja.
The Blues secured their place in the semi-finals of the EFL Cup on Tuesday, as they seek their first domestic trophy since 2018. The EPL is the bread and butter for Chelsea, though, and they have work to do after an inconsistent start to the season. Mauricio Pochettino's men are 10th right now, six points adrift of the top seven.
It is hard to know which version of Chelsea is going to turn up for any given game. At their best they are capable of producing some free-flowing soccer. On other occasions they struggle to create chances and are undone by defensive lapses.
Wolves will be on hand to take advantage if the Blues leave gaps at the back. They have already done so against big teams this season, beating both Man City and Tottenham at Molineux. Gary O'Neil's side will press high up the pitch and look to force turnovers in advanced areas.

How to watch the Wolves vs Chelsea live stream wherever you are
The Wolves vs Chelsea live stream will be shown on many different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual service?
The answer is to use a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN will let you tune into your home coverage from wherever you are — meaning that if you're abroad, you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live as if you were in your lounge.
Our favorite right now is ExpressVPN, thanks to its combination of superb speed, great customer service and excellent device support. It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could check it out without having to sign up long-term.
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.
2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance, if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you'd select U.S. from the list.
3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to Sling or another service and watch the game.
