Team News
Eden Hazard was one of the players rested during Chelsea's Europa league fixture. It is likely that he will return to the team along with N'golo Kante. Maurizio Sarri has no injury concerns. 

Manager Nuno Espirito Santo has confirmed that Rui Patricio will return in goal for Wolves after he was rested during midweek. Ryan Bennett has picked up 10 yellow cards, so starts his two match ban. Romain Saiss is expected to take his place. There is no injury concerns for Wolves. 

Last time they met
The last time these teams met, Wolves recovered from an early Ruben Loftus-Cheek goal to win 2-1. Second half goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota helped them seal a famous victory. 
Recent Form
Chelsea have enjoyed a good run of form recently, winning four out of their last five and the one they didn't win they took all the way to penalties. A win today will see them go up to 4th place until the Arsenal vs Manchester United fixture later in the day. 

Wolves have only won two out of their last five in their inconsistent season. A win here though would see them go three points clear of Watford in 7th place. 

Last Time Out
Chelsea run out comfortable 3-0 winners in their last match in the Europa League against Dynamo Kyiv. 

Two goals early on from Wolves also helped them ease to victory in their last game against Cardiff, thanks to goals from Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez.
