Chelsea will be looking to keep the pressure on the top four with a win over Wolves at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.
Maurizio Sarri has made a number of changes from the side that beat Dynamo Kyiv in the Europa League on Thursday night with Cesar Azpilicueta recalled at right-back in place of Davide Zappacosta while Emerson Palmeiri comes in on the opposite flank with Marcos Alonso making way.
Antonio Rudiger is also brought back in to join David Luiz in the heart of the Chelsea defence with Andreas Christensen dropping out while N’Golo Kante gets a recall in midfield after being rested in midweek. Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic keep their places in the middle of the park so Ross Barkley is the man to make way against Wolves.
Eden Hazard returns in attack after his rest on Thursday night while Gonzalo Higuain leads the line up front for Chelsea so Willian and Olivier Giroud make way. Pedro keeps his place in the front three after scoring the opener against Kyiv.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
Kepa, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Rudiger, Emerson, Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic, Pedro, Higuain, Hazard
Subs: Barkley, Loftus-Cheek, Caballero, Giroud, Hudson-Odoi, Willian, Christensen
Patricio, Coady, Boly, Saiss, Doherty, Dendoncker, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny, Jota, Jiminez
Subs: Cavaleiro, Costa, Gibbs-White, Ruddy, Vinagre, Traore, Kilman
