Chelsea Team News
Goalkeeper – Eduoard Mendy
The new Goalkeeper from Rennes has now made mistakes in back-to-back matches after a poor challenge on Dominic Calvert-Lewin which let Everton score the only goal.
Defenders – Chilwell, Thiago, James, Zouma
Thiago Silva was criticised for his part in Chelsea’s penalty against Everton, and partly responsbible for Leeds’ goal.
Silva has had a strong effect on Chelsea’s defence this season, using his experience in France to improve the Blues.
Kurt Zouma was not at his best against Everton but is likely to start alongside Silva, with Reece James and Ben Chilwell on both wings.
James and Chilwell will have to deal with the likes of Pedro Neo and Adama Traore in the match today.
Midfield – Kante, Mount, Havertz
N’Golo Kante was by far Chelsea’s best player against Everton and is expected to keep his place for the Wolves game.
Mason Mount is also likely to start, with Lampard a huge fan of his talent and work rate.
Attack – Pulisic, Giroud, Werner
Pulisic is back for Chelsea tonight after a thigh injury, and Lampard could throw him straight back into the Starting XI.
The USA winger could line up alongside Timo Werner and Olivier Giroud or Tammy Abraham in attack.
Olivier Giroud did not perform as expected in Saturday’s defeat.
Chelsea Likely XI vs Wolves: Mendy, Thiago, James, Zouma, Chilwell, Havertz, Kante, Mount, Werner, Pulisic, Giroud.
