CHELSEA

Whoever takes charge of Chelsea on Wednesday will only have to deal with one injury concern in the form of N’Golo Kante, who is working his way back from a hamstring problem but will not be ready this week.

Should Tuchel indeed take the reins at Stamford Bridge, he will certainly be tasked with getting the best out of fellow Germans Timo Werner and Kai Havertz – both of whom are yet to justify their big-money moves to the club.

Tuchel toyed with a three-man defence during his final days at PSG but is also partial to a 4-3-3 – a familiar system for the Blues, who should welcome Edouard Mendy, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell back to the first XI.

Chelsea Probable Lineup (4-3-3): Mendy; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Silva, Chilwell; Havertz, Jorginho, Mount; Ziyech, Werner, Pulisic

WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS

Wolves new boy Willian Jose is not ready to take to the field yet as he waits to receive a work permit, so Fabio Silva should continue up top for now.

Santo continues to cope without Jonny Otto, Marcal and Daniel Podence, and no timeframe has been placed on Jimenez’s return to action.

After handing opportunities to several fringe players in the cup, a more familiar Wolves XI is set to feature Rui Patricio, Nelson Semedo, Ruben Neves and Neto.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Probable Lineup (4-3-3): Patricio; Semedo, Coady, Boly, Saiss; Neves, Moutinho, Dendoncker; Traore, Silva, Neto

CHELSEA VS WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS PREDICTION

It remains to be seen whether the new manager bounce phenomenon will be in play this week, and with Chelsea’s team selection and tactics shrouded in uncertainty, this is a difficult game to call. Wolves will be desperate to take advantage of the hosts’ volatile situation as they look to pull themselves out of their own rut, and we can see Chelsea’s first game of the post-Lampard era ending with the spoils shared.

Prediction: Chelsea 1-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers
