Ahead of Saturday's Premier League game between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Chelsea, Sports Mole looks at how the Blues could line up at Molineux.
By , Senior Reporter | 3d

Chelsea take on Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux this weekend having put together a three-match unbeaten streak in the Premier League.

However, with two of those games - against Leicester City and Sheffield United - ending in draws, the Blues find themselves in 11th position in the standings.

Frank Lampard also has a number of selection dilemmas as a result of minor knocks sustained in recent weeks and a number of players closing in on a return from injury.

Here, Sports Mole predicts how the West Londoners could line up when they take to the pitch at Molineux.




Out: Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Achilles), Reece James (ankle),
Doubtful: N'Golo Kante (ankle), Pedro (thigh), Mateo Kovacic (Achilles), Callum Hudson-Odoi (lack of match fitness), Emerson Palmieri (thigh)

Lampard may opt to hand a first start of the season to Antonio Rudiger, with the centre-back having successfully come through two second-string matches after a knee injury.

There could be a further change of the left-hand side after Emerson Palmieri sustained a knock while representing Italy earlier this week, something which may lead to Marcos Alonso coming into the team.

N'Golo Kante is in contention after an ankle sprain and the France international could replace Mateo Kovacic, who has been carrying an Achilles problem.

Having started each of England's Euro 2020 qualifiers over the past week, Ross Barkley may be rested, giving Willian an opportunity to come back into the side on the left flank.

Pedro remains doubtful with a thigh issue, although the Spaniard may be ready to feature on the bench ahead of a potential recall against Valencia on Tuesday night.

Lampard is unlikely to risk Callum Hudson-Odoi as he continues to build his fitness after an Achilles injury, while Reece James is still out of contention despite returning to the training pitch after ankle surgery.
