Chelsea will lock horns with Wolverhampton Wanderers at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, hoping to produce a positive result on their home turf. The visitors will be coming into the match on the back of a disappointing 3-0 defeat to Brighton, whereas the Blues recorded a 1-0 loss to Everton.

Thomas Tuchel will probably opt for the 3-4-3 formation; however, he is expected to make a couple of changes for the upcoming contest. In attack, Christian Pulisic might get the nod over Timo Werner, whereas N’Golo Kante looks likely to make his way back into the starting eleven.

Defence

Edouard Mendy is expected to start between the sticks for the upcoming clash. The Senegalese shot-stopper would hope to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Saturday.

Thiago Silva is expected to start at the heart of Blues’ backline, whereas Antonio Rudiger will feature at the left centre-back spot. Cesar Azpilicueta will fulfil the right centre-back position.

Midfield

Mateo Kovacic and N’Golo Kante might fulfil the holding midfield positions, with the former occupying a more central role. The pair would be looking to dominate the midfield proceedings.

Marcos Alonso might start at the left wing-back position, whereas Reece James will fill in on the other flank as the right wing-back. The duo would be expected to stretch Chelsea’s attacks in the opposition half.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek will have to settle for a place on the bench, but he could be brought on in the latter stages of the game if needed.

Attack

Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount will slot into the attacking midfield roles. The duo would be determined to set up some clear-cut goal-scoring chances for the front-men.

Kai Havertz might lead the line for Chelsea this weekend. The 22-year-old striker will be hoping to find the back of the net when he faces off against the Wolves defence that conceded nine goals in their last five league matches.

Timo Werner might come on to make a cameo appearance in the second forty-five minutes.
