CHELSEA vs WOLVES
Eden Hazard and N’Golo Kante are among the players likely to return for Chelsea after manager Maurizio Sarri rotated his squad in the Europa League.
Sarri has no apparent injury concerns, with defender Antonio Rudiger and striker Gonzalo Higuain also expected to be recalled following Thursday’s 3-0 victory over Dynamo Kiev. Pedro could retain his starting spot on Sunday after impressing against Kiev, but fellow winger Callum Hudson-Odoi, who came on to score in that game, may once again have to be content with a place on the substitutes’ bench.
Rui Patricio will return for Wolves after being rested for the win over Cardiff. John Ruddy started to ensure he had some game time before next week’s FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester United. Ryan Bennett misses out as he starts a two-game ban after collecting 10 yellow cards with Romain Saiss expected to drop into defence.
