Thomas Tuchel set to replace Frank Lampard at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea coach as we take a look on how Tuchel will lineup against Wolves tomorrow.
Chelsea take on Wolverhampton Wanderers at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Wednesday, 27 January 2021 without Frank Lampard, as the club parted way with him.
Tuchle will takes charge of Chelsea on Wednesday will only have to deal with one injury concern in the form of N’Golo Kante, who is working his way back from a hamstring problem but will not be ready this week.
Should Tuchel indeed take the reins at Stamford Bridge, he will certainly be tasked with getting the best out of fellow Germans Timo Werner and Kai Havertz – both of whom are yet to justify their big-money moves to the club.
Tuchel toyed with a three-man defence during his final days at PSG but is also partial to a 4-3-3 – a familiar system for the Blues, who should welcome Edouard Mendy, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell back to the first XI.
Meanwhile, Wolves could throw Jose straight into the starting lineup for the trip to the capital, with Fabio Silva – who is far from the finished product – often criticised for his wastefulness in front of goal.
Santo continues to cope without Jonny Otto, Marcal and Daniel Podence, and no timeframe has been placed on Jimenez’s return to action.
After handing opportunities to several fringe players in the cup, a more familiar Wolves XI is set to feature Rui Patricio, Nelson Semedo, Ruben Neves and Neto.
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; James, Zouma, Silva, Chilwell; Kovacic, Mount, Havertz; Ziyech, Abraham, Werner
Wolverhampton Wanderers possible starting lineup:
Patricio; Semedo, Coady, Boly, Saiss; Neves, Moutinho, Dendoncker; Traore, Jose, Neto
