Team News :
The Blues are not having any major injury problems at this moment. The players are ready to give their all in the field. However, the Blues were beaten by Wolves in the away match with a margin of 2-0. Wolves are currently one of the best sides outside the top six of the Premier League. So, there is no point of taking them lightly in this match.
After a bad patch, the Blues have started to play good football after the game against Manchester City. They have won all the matches since the tie breaker defeat against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup Final match. Chelsea are now looking like a serious contender for the top four in this season.
