The 2017 champions can ill-afford to drop more points in the title race if Sarri's men intend to challenge for the Premier League crown.

Nuno, who has insisted that his team do not lack any confidence, will need to see some improvement if they are to get a result against Chelsea on Wednesday night. While Chelsea are looking to build on their win against Fulham over the weekend.

However, it would be worth bearing in mind that Wolves have held Manchester City at home already this season, whilst also holding Arsenal to a draw at the Emirates Stadium and Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Another significant change will be in the midfield area where Ruben Loftus Cheek is expected to get a game after scoring one of the goals in Chelsea's 2-0 victory against Fulham on Sunday. The club has gone winless across its past six games, last garnering a winning result against Crystal Palace on October 6. Wolves supporters are hoping that the team that plays up to their competition shows up Wednesday against Chelsea. However, Chelsea could close the gap on Saturday when they host City at Stamford Bridge.

Mr Younger also recounted his own experience in the service, where he was first tasked with penetrating a terror group in the western Balkans.

David Luiz joins Jorginho on the bench, with Alvaro Morata starting up front rather than Olivier Giroud.

Chelsea (9-4-1) enters the contest third in the league standings with 31 points captured through 14 matches played.
