Recent respective form guides
Bolton Wanderers's woeful home form means they have chalked up just a single victory, with 5 defeats, from the last six. While Trotters have scored 6, a worringly large 15 have been leaked at the other end.
Chelsea's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Blues have hit 5 goals, 8 have hit the back of the wrong net.
Bolton Wanderers find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 6 games have yielded only 3 points.
Chelsea's total of 13 points from their 6 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Barclays Premier League.
