“Wolves are struggling for goals although they did create quite a few chances in Saturday’s home defeat by Aston Villa,” Lawrenson told BBC Sport.
“Chelsea lost at the weekend too, and they did not really get going against Everton.
“Frank Lampard’s side maybe still have to get used to teams who are set up to stop them from playing the way they want to, but I expect them to win at Molineux.”
Wolves have lost nine times to Chelsea FC in the Premier League, which is their worst tally against any other side apart from Liverpool FC.
The Blues have only failed to score in one of their last 17 games against Wolves.
