Tomori & Barkley To Start, Abraham Leads The Line | 4-2-3-1 Chelsea Predicted Lineup Vs Wolves

Chelsea will travel to the Molineux Stadium to clash heads with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday afternoon on the back of a disappointing 2-2 draw versus Sheffield United before the international break. The Pensioners will be desperate to claim maximum points from the West Midlands this weekend. However, Wolves won’t be any pushovers as they will fancy their chances of securing a positive result against the West London outfit.

Frank Lampard is expected to opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and might name an unchanged lineup for this encounter against Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

4-2-3-1 Chelsea Predicted Lineup To Face Wolves

Defence

Kepa Arrizabalaga will play in between the sticks for the West Londoners despite conceding 11 goals in five matches this season. The centre-back pair of Fikayo Tomori and Kurt Zouma will operate at the heart of Lampard’s backline while hoping to keep their first shut-out of this season.

Cesar Azpilicueta will look to put in a solid shift at the back while assuming his duties as the right-back. Emerson Palmieri will be in a race against time to be fit for this clash. The Italy international should recover in time to start ahead of Marcos Alonso against Nuno Espirito Santo’s men this weekend.

Andreas Christensen might have to settle for a place on the Chelsea bench and might come on during the match if needed. This Premier League match might come too soon for Antonio Rudiger who is still recovering from his recent injury setback.

Midfield

Jorginho and Matteo Kovacic will likely operate as the holding midfielders as they try to establish the away side’s dominance at the centre of the park. The trio of Mason Mount, Ross Barkley and Christian Pulisic might link up just ahead of them as part of the Pensioners attack.

Mount has enjoyed a brilliant start to this campaign so a lot will be expected of him when he laces up to take on the Wolves defence this Saturday. Pedro is a major doubt for this game and could miss out on this away clash at the Molineux Stadium.

Attack

Tammy Abraham, who has been in a rich vein of form of late, will spearhead Lampard’s attack up top. The English striker has scored four goals in his past two league starts which have cemented his place in Lampard’s first XI.
