Wolverhampton Wanderers will be looking to cement their current sixth position in the Premier League when they play Frank Lampard’s Chelsea away at Stamford Bridge in their final top-flight game of the 2019/20 season.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s team have finished no higher than seventh in the Premier League before, which they achieved last term, so a win away at the Blues would guarantee their highest finish in the modern era.
What will be the result of Chelsea v Wolves?
However, Chelsea have incentives of their own as they look to seal a Champions League spot for next season, so one can expect a rather competitive encounter.
This is how Wolves may line up against Chelsea:
Being away from home and given that Chelsea have a lot to play for, Nuno may take a more cautious approach and thus add an extra man in midfield.
This may well be Leander Dendoncker, who played in the centre of defence against Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace in their last outing, meaning that Romain Saiss could slot into a centre-back role instead.
Given that one attacker may be dropped, it could be Adama Traore to be the unlucky one to miss out, given the scoring pedigree of Raul Jimenez and the impressive display of Daniel Podence against the Eagles, where he was deemed the joint-best player on the pitch alongside fellow teammate Matt Doherty by Sofascore with a 7.8 overall rating.
This is not quite the final match of the season for Wolves as they will have the Europa League to come next month, but they will surely want to end their Premier League campaign on a high this afternoon and ensure that they have European football at Molineux again in 2020/21.
