Chelsea gaffer, Thomas Tuchel will be hoping to have N’Golo Kante ready for Saturday’s Premier League match against Wolves at Stamford Bridge.
The French World Cup Winner missed the recent loss to relegation-threatened, Everton with a “minor” injury, and his return would be beneficial after Jorginho‘s forced substitution at Goodison Park.
Barkley and Christensen are also likely to return from illness in time for the showdown, as Hudson-Odoi and Chilwell continue their own recoveries.
Cesar Azpilicueta may still be baffled as to how Jordan Pickford managed to keep out his goal-bound shot last Sunday, but the veteran defender should partner with the likes of Antonio Rudiger and Thiago Silva in defence.
If Jorginho isn’t fully fit to play, Kante will likely feature alongside Kovacic in the midfield pushing Ruben Loftus-Cheek to the bench.
England Superstar, Mason Mount is unlikely to lose his starting spot in the final third, but Christian Pulisic is vying for a starting spot against Timo Werner.
However, with the London based outfit unable to make the net ripple against the Toffees, Romelu Lukaku was forced to watch from the bench, and Kai Havertz should once again lead the line.
