Wolverhampton Wanderers

In Brief

Wait for first league win continues. Saiss and Doherty slight doubts. Boly suspended.

Looking Back

Wolves focused great energy on making it to group stages in Europa League and from this suffered their league results, yet to record Premier League win this season.

Now Premier League becomes priority though and best possible squad expected to be selected domestically in next few weeks.

Looking Ahead

Coach Santo without Boly due to ban, but Doherty possibly able to overcome knee injury on time. Vallejo the likely starter instead of Boly.

Saiss has picked up knock while on international duty and he could sit out too.

Points of Interest

Unbeaten in last 10 home Premier League games.

In Brief

Defending has been dubious so far – 9 goals conceded in 4 Premier League games. Kante, Loftus-Cheek and Hudson-Odoi sidelined. Emerson sight doubt. Kovacic, Pedro and Rudiger welcomed back.

Looking Back

Chelsea with just 1 win so far, mainly due to their poor defensive displays. Conceded 2 goals or more in 3 of 4 rounds and yet to keep clean sheet.

In last round starting line-up selected was youngest ever in Premier League history, but this brings risks as in every game so far Blues lost control of proceedings at some point and looked all at sea for substantial periods of time.

Looking Ahead

Coach Lampard set to continue using many youngsters, but with arguably best centre-back Rudiger fit again + Pedro fit and available much more experienced squad could be selected. Kante won't be risked just yet.

Impressive left-back Emerson and Kovacic sustained injuries while on international duty, but it seems both will be able to recover quickly. In fact Kovacic confirmed as fully fit.

Pulisic not expected to start after long trip to USA and back.

Points of Interest

Tammy Abraham red hot – 4 goals in last 2 rounds!
