Chelsea take on Wolves at Stamford Bridge this weekend in the Premier League and this game could be really important for the Blues in terms of the top-four race.

Arsenal and Man United take on each other this weekend which means the Stamford Bridge outfit might have the change to end the weekend in the fourth spot.

The Blues are currently sixth on the league table with 56 points and if the Arsenal and Man United were to end in a draw then Sarri’s men could finally break into the top-four.

Chelsea team news vs Wolves:

Maurizio Sarri made a number of changes to this first XI during Chelsea’s win over Dynamo Kiev this week as the manager chose to rest a number of his first team players.

Christensen got a rare start in defence alongside David Luiz in the Europa League but Antonio Rudiger will return back to the first XI vs Wolves this weekend.

Zappacosta started at right-back in midweek but Azpilicueta will most certainly feature in the first XI on Sunday.

Matteo Kovacic and Ross Barkley got to start together in midfield which meant N’Golo was rested for the Europa League clash.

But vs Wolves, the Frenchman will take up his familiar role in midfield which means either Barkley or Kovacic will move back to the bench.

Both Eden Hazard and Gonzalo Higuain were rested vs Dynamo Kiev but the pair should return to the first XI which means Olivier Giroud and Willian will make their way back to the bench.

Youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi came off the bench on Thursday and the winger is once again expected to remain out of the starting XI on Sunday.
