Chelsea football club will be host by Wolves in the English Premier League, EPL, this afternoon at 15:00 GMT, and they would look to return to winning ways after drawing match against Everton in midweek.
However, according to Tuchel’s last injury update on Chelsea’s official website, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Jorginho are doubtful for this game due to injury setbacks, and Tuchel is left with no other option than to start with N’Golo Kante and Jorginho who have only returned to full training this week after recovering from injuries.
Kante and Kovacic are likely to start today in the absence of Loftus-Cheek and Jorginho, but they may struggle to perform after just returning from injuries.
And given they have not played for over a month now, they may struggle to perform for 90 minutes as they are unlikely to have enough match fitness to perform throughout the game.
Kai Havertz is likely to feature today after testing negative.
Lukaku, Hudson-Odoi, and Werner are all out after testing positive for Covid 19.
And with Chelsea also likely to miss their strikers today due to Covid 19, Wolves may dominate the game and can even go on to win the Blues today, thanks to their counter-attacking and defensive ability.
However, despite losing a host of their top players in recent months, Chelsea has been showing their quality on the pitch in recent games, though they have been struggling to defend their leads and it has caused them many points so far, and they would need to be very strong defensively if they want to get a good result against Wolves who are very dangerous in attack.
Chelsea has also been missing a lot of goalscoring chances in games recently, and they will need to improve their finishing today to increase their chance of winning Wolves who only conceded a goal each against Manchester City and Liverpool respectively.
